Aaron Rodgers leads game-winning drive as Mason Crosby’s 27-yard FG gives Packers 33-30 win over 49ers

Aaron Rodgers engineered yet another magical comeback for the Green Bay Packers Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.

Rodgers led the Packers 81 yards over the final minute and change of regulation to setup a 27-yard game-winning field goal from Mason Crosby to stun a 49ers team that held a 30-23 lead with three minutes left to play.

Crosby bounced back after his wretched week in Detroit where he missed five kicks a week ago to go 4-for-4 against the 49ers, including the game-winner that allowed Green Bay to escape with a 33-30 victory.

It appeared as though the 49ers had done enough to hold on as DeForest Buckner sacked Rodgers on a third-and-15 at the Green Bay 19-yard line. However, the sack was negated and a fresh set of downs given to the Packers after an illegal contact penalty against Richard Sherman made it first-and-10 instead of fourth-and-19.

Rodgers knocked down the open door, scrambling for for 21 yards out near midfield and spiked the ball to stop the clock with 20 seconds remaining. He rattled off quick completions to Adams for 8, Equanimious St. Brown for 19 and Adams again for 19 to move to the 49ers 9-yard line to set up the shot attempt for Crosby to pull out the victory.

C.J. Beathard tossed a pair of touchdowns to Marquise Goodwin, and Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida combined for 148 rushing yards as the 49ers had the Packers on the ropes.

Beathard led the 49ers out of a 17-7 hole in Lambeau Field, going on a 23-6 scoring run until the Packers late rally dealt a crushing blow.

Trailing 30-23, Rodgers would zip a 38-yard completion to Adams to move to the 49ers 20-yard line as they moved into scoring position. Rodgers and Adams would then finish off the drive with a 16-yard touchdown in the back corner of the end zone to tie the game with just under two minutes to play.

Beathard and the 49ers took one took many bites at the Goodwin apple as a deep shot to the 49ers speedster was picked off by Kevin King with 1:07 left to play to set up the Packers death blow at the wire.

Both teams scored on their opening possessions of the game. Breida’s 3-yard touchdown run capped a seven-play, 75-yard opening salvo for the 49ers only to be quickly matched with a four-play, 77-yard Packers drive that ended with a 2-yard Ty Montgomery touchdown run on a throw behind the line of scrimmage.

A 29-yard Mason Crosby field goal and 9-yard touchdown pass to Adams gave the Packers a 17-7 lead late in the first quarter.

Beathard would go over the top of the Packers defense for a 67-yard touchdown to Goodwin to close the gap to 17-14 before the end of the first quarter.

After another Crosby field goal, Beathard and Goodwin would connect again on a 30-yard touchdown strike as the 49ers grabbed a 21-20 lead.

Field goals of 46, 44 and 43 yards for Robbie Gould and a 51-yard field goal by Crosby brought the game to 30-23 before the final frenzy.

Rodgers finished with 425 passing yards on the night and three receivers – Adams (132), Jimmy Graham (104) and Marquez Valdez-Scantling (103) – went over 100 yards receiving for the Packers.

Beathard finished with 245 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for San Francisco.

  1. Shanahan should be fired for calling that pass play on 3rd and 3. The run games has been very good and you go with a pass ok 3rd and short. Beathard should have never been but in a position to throw that interception. Terrible play call. Dumb just dumb.

  2. As a diehard pats fan from mass living in Chicago and married to a bears fan, I want the packers to lose. Not because of Rodgers I love that guy, my wife on the other hand doesn’t for obvious reasons. I want Green Bay to lose so Rodgers can expose McCarthy. Mike better be giving Aaron half of his yearly salary to BAIL him out every week.

  3. As expected there was at least one clown whining about the refs favoring the Packers. Apparently he didn’t see when some 49er threw Rodgers to the ground late for what should’ve been a roughing the passer to offset that grounding penalty. Or the uncalled PI on 4th down in the end zone to end the Packers’ 3rd to last drive. Or the rediculous (especially after those 2 uncalled fouls) late hit on the 49ers’ last kick return.

  4. Same thing as last week, Tess was okay, gets held back w/ horrible crew, officiating was very poor, shouldnt have been a INT, and they should have done a slant like the steelers did or ran the ball on 3rd and 3. All in all, garbage

  5. Love how Rodgers is wincing in pain over his “knee injury” then of course gets a phantom flag to keep the drive alive. After hobbling around he manages to scramble in a full sprint for a 20 yard gain, slides and pops up with a celebration the very next play. What a fraud. Enjoy it, squeaking out a performance against the 49ers the Pats and Rams are lickikf their chops and the fake injury won’t work.

  6. Such a scam. The penalty to give Rodgers and the Packers the game was a joke. This is not a real game any longer. It is pre-ordained for Superstars like Rodgers to win.

  7. NFL is turning into a joke. How do you call that random off the ball peanalty on 4th and 20 to bail Rogers out? It’s the same garbage treatment for stars week after week. NFL is turning soft, they’re ruining the game I love.

  8. Must be nice to be relevant. You get illegal contact calls to keep you on the field. Niners will have to deal with that for another year or two. Long flight home after that.

  9. Sherman barely touched a WR on a play that wasn’t even coming to him. Yet, the flag is thrown so that Rodgers is given every possible chance on prime time to succeed. It is a joke…and possibly rigged.

  10. NFL is turning into a joke. How do you call that random off the ball peanalty on 4th and 20 to bail Rogers out?
    ——-
    They called the exact same thing against the Packers earlier in the game to extend a 49ers drive. There were very few penalties in this game…quit complaining.

  11. The Packers didn’t beat the 49ers… the refs beat the 49ers. Ridiculous ticky tack penalty while they allowed the Packers OL to hold every 49er DL for 5 full seconds.

    While I agree officiating has been bad this year, not on that play. Sherman bearhugged Adams. You can’t do that. Refs have to call that penalty.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    You mean that random reach-around Sherman put on Adams’ waist as Adams made his break? Yeah, that was terrible. Instead of crying sour grapes, you should feel pretty good about how your 9ers played tonight.

  14. The Packers barely beat a 1-4 team, who is without their starting quarterback and were supposed to be impressed ? The Packers should’ve wiped them out like 35-7. That illegal contact on that drive was stupid, he barely got the guy. Yeah, it was rigged for Rogers to be the hero.

  15. The NFL is quickly becoming a joke. I never thought it possible, but am seriously believing some games are rigged to give superstar QBS favor. The proof is mounting up to ridiculous levels. Just watch Brady last night and Rodgers tonight. The proof is right in front of our eyes.

  16. Not a good look for Packers. Defense reminded me of the Bears yesterday. I hope Pettine is in the film room right now. Where are the Safeties?

  17. Definitely a few calls and non calls that benefited the Niners but once again Green Bay gets the calls to their advantage to help bail them out.

  18. Came here to watch Vikings’ fans and others say that King dropped the ball, the Sherman penalty didn’t happen, and Rodgers was faking his injury (after he was tackled by his left leg, where the injury is)- was not disappointed.

  19. It never ceases to amaze me how people in here hate Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. The NFL is better because of both of those guys and when they are gone, you haters will have to find someone else to hate. And you will, I’m sure.

  20. Phantom bs calls by refs in last 2 minutes. That flag on Sherman was atrocious. If pack sucked for five years they’d move out of state. Nice prop job nfl.

  21. Can’t expect to win a game in Lambeau without a franchise QB. CJ Beathard managed the game well, everyone fought hard, competed, and handled their part.

    But when it’s all said and down when it was time to bring the game home we got two 3 & outs, and an interception from our QB.

    This is why you need a franchise QB to win in the NFL, and this is why I miss Kaepernick. Kap brought the game home when it was time to win. He was so competitive you put the ball kn his hands he’s gonna in that moment. He’s gonna stomp on the opposing team…..unless Harbaugh, Geep, or G Ro calls a fade route to Crabtree in the end zone.

  22. Any reason why under two minutes the booth didn’t review Kevin King’s interception that looked like it hit the ground? No? Okay.

    Let’s say they overturned it. Then it’s 4th down, the Niners punt, and I’ll bet they’re pretty happy if they down it at the 7.

    Keep the excuses coming, Barneys…the schadenfreude is delicious.

  23. What an atrocious job the Niners did on D at the end. Its as if they werent even trying to keep them from getting out of bounds plays

  24. Interesting that a ball that clearly hit the ground on King’s interception wasn’t reviewed. Hmmmm…..it’s so obvious. Crazy obvious that some of these games aren’t so random as we thought.

    ———

    The rule changes have made QB stats pretty much meaningless. There is no point in comparing them anymore. Any QB can score at will now.

  26. It was a massive collapse by the 9ers. Much more so than it was magic by Rogers. Hell all the 9ers had to do was move the ball 15 yards for a GW FG after the packers took the terrible penalty on the kickoff.

    Nahh they do nothing but stop the clock and throw a pick. Horrendous to watch.

  27. Every turnover is supposed to be reviewed. The ball hit the ground on the int which makes it an incomplete pass. I am really starting to think every NFL game is rigged or scripted.

  28. “This is why you need a franchise QB to win in the NFL, and this is why I miss Kaepernick. Kap brought the game home when it was time to win. He was so competitive you put the ball kn his hands he’s gonna in that moment.”

    Nope. 4k TV and DVR replay a dozen times. It was impossible to tell and thus the ruling on the field wouldn’t be over-turned.

  30. Packers barely beat a beat up 1-4 team AT HOME. That defense is a sieve, only difference between last year and this year is Rodgers collar bone. It’s nothijng less than offensive to us share holders. All a game like this does is make it a little bit harder to unload Mike “yes man” McCarthy during the next off season. Repulsive performance in “title town” tonight. I left in the 3rd quarter hoping they’d get the loss they deserve.

  31. 49ers let the Packers complete 3 straight passes, all OB, for 46 yards, all while GB was out of timeouts with 19 seconds left.

    Sometimes all it takes is to face a coach who is dumber than yours.

    —————————————————————————————–

    Oh — here we go again. The crybabies always whine about officiating when their teams lose. They showed the replay of Sherman grabbing Adams a few times and it was absolutely the right call.
    How about the no call on roughing Rodgers? Did you miss that one or did you look the other way?
    The Niners played a great game tonight and would have won had Beathard not thrown that last interception. And there is no question it was an interception despite some who have whined above that it wasn’t. Clearly, King had his hand under the ball and under control the whole time. If that’s not an interception, then there is no such thing as an interception.
    I am a Packers fan and I have no illusions about this Packers team. They make too many mistakes and have too many young guys starting to be a serious contender in the NFC. As soon as I saw the schedule come out, I had the next two games after their bye against the Rams and Patriots (at their places) as losses. Nothing I have seen changes my mind about that.
    The Packers were dealt a very tough schedule and I predicted they’d win 9 games at most this year. Nothing I have seen has changed my mind about that.
    It’s okay though, because we have two 1st round draft picks next year and we have some good young talent already on the roster. It means the Packers will still be a tough game for anyone they play next year and for several more years, too.
    So bash them all you want and criticize Aaron Rodgers, too. I know where all that stems from — jealousy.
    The Packers won that game this evening. If you don’t believe it, pick up a newspaper tomorrow and check out the game stats.

  33. To all of you saying that King didn’t intercept the ball:
    A: all turnovers are reviewed, as was this one
    B: he never lost control of the ball even if it did “touch” the ground which you couldn’t definitively see
    C:if by some miracle he didn’t (which he did) then you can thank the refs for gifting that to them after robbing the Packers in the Vikings game on almost the same exact play.

  34. Call on Sherman was complete BS. That kind of “contact” happens on every pass play. A bear hug? Are you friggin kidding me? When you play in GB you play the refs too. We all know it.

    —————————————————————————————

    I’d love to see how many times Rodgers has given the Packers the lead late in the 4th quarter only to have the porous defenses the Packers have had year after year give up the game winning TD or field goal.

  36. They didn’t review the INT because the booth got a clear look at it. The only time they stop the clock to review is when there’s doubt before the next snap. Sure ball ‘might’ have touched the ground but King had clear control. Ball didn’t even budge.

    Blame your coach for not icing a kicker who missed almost all his FGs last week. Blame him for calling a pass on 3rd and short.

    Regardless of how minor Sherman’s contact is, it’s still contact and a penalty.

  37. How cute that the Packers barely pulled out a victory at home against the lowly 1-5 49ers with their backup quarterback. Enjoy the moment because after the bye week, the schedule gets much tougher. Their next five games are at the Rams, at New England, home against Miami, at Seattle and at Minnesota. There’s a good chance they’ll be 3-7-1 before December.

  38. “while they allowed the Packers OL to hold every 49er DL for 5 full seconds.”

    Yet Rodgers was being hit within a second or 2 on most pass plays.

  39. “Interesting that a ball that clearly hit the ground on King’s interception wasn’t reviewed. Hmmmm…..it’s so obvious. Crazy obvious that some of these games aren’t so random as we thought.”

    Thought the same thing

  40. The call on Richard Sherman didn’t guarantee anything, just meant the teams go into overtime. No guarantee the 49-whiners win the game. GB got jobbed suspect roughing calls. Everyone feels like the refs are out to give somebody the win.

  41. Without Rodgers the Packers are a 2-14 team at best. No run game and haven’t had a D since winning SB45.

  42. “It appeared as though the 49ers had done enough to hold on as DeForest Buckner sacked Rodgers on a third-and-15 at the Green Bay 19-yard line.”

    Dude, it was tied at that point.

  43. I have no dog in this fight. If anything I’d side with the Niners. That was illegal contact downfield, correctly called, the look on Sherman’s face was that he knew it, too.

    ————————————————————-
    I think everybody did enough to win. Our defense gave the offense the ball back after a 3 & out. Our Special teams gave the offense excellent Field Position for a game winning drive.

    It was a massive collapse by our QB. CJ froze up in the clutch. CJ played a good game for a backup QB, but he played just good enough to lose.

    Proud of the whole squad though. It was great moral victory. Great effort.

  45. Last year’s Cleveland West(gbp) needed to be bailed out tonight by the refs yet again, to beat the 1-4 Jimmy Garappolo-less Niners at home.Just 3 weeks ago hometown was talking super bowl. hahaha

  46. All these crybabies crying about Sherman’s Penalty. A player should never be rewarded for his stupidity. It was a blatant illegal contact, you just don’t like that it happened on 3rd and long, when he got sacked.

  47. Just take note, the Packers had to struggle to beat a Niners team without their starting QB and other key injured players at home. The Packers will be watching the playoffs from home this season.

  48. I can’t believe Vikings fans whining about the officials when, it was the officials that gifted them a tie vs the Packers!!!

  49. Whether or not your team won or lost tonight, I think the real tragedy here is how piss poor of a job ESPN does of broadcasting a football game.

    +++++
    Maybe Sherman shouldn’t have touched him at all then.

  51. Predictable.
    Anyone who thinks the outcomes of these games aren’t manipulated by the officials is delusional. Magically, a 3 point last minute drive to seal it on Sunday night. Then again, a 3 point magical drive to seal the deal on Monday night (after an interception that wasn’t – but inside 2 minutes “the booth reviews”).
    #fixedball #nowI’mDone

  52. Valiant effort by the Niners but the outcome was expected.

    As disappointing as it is, Beathard at least gave the team a chance. The defense (minus a few players) needs to be rebuilt AGAIN. At least the game next week won’t give me a sense of false hope.

    Go Niners

  53. Give the game ball to Davonte Adams. He bailed out his team by being unstoppable at the end. How many chances did Rodgers need to score that TD? Four drives, if you count that Sherman penalty as the start of a new drive. “Clutch”.

  54. Its really amusing to see the conspiracy theories – Packers played poorly but Rodgers came through in the end. As for King’s interception, anyone who sees bias in that clearly sees what they wanna see. That was a clean interception. Packers are hanging in there in year one of Gutekunst’s two year rebuild. This year it was corners and receivers. Next year its pass rushers and offensive line whilst shedding the overpaid legacy players (sorry Clay).

    This is why you need a franchise QB to win in the NFL, and this is why I miss Kaepernick. Kap brought the game home when it was time to win. He was so competitive you put the ball kn his hands he’s gonna in that moment. He’s gonna stomp on the opposing team…..unless Harbaugh, Geep, or G Ro calls a fade route to Crabtree in the end zone.
    _________________________________________________

    You know it was only a matter of time before a supporter of Kaepernick showed up so are you also referring to the same Kaepernick that was sacked five times and threw for four yards against the Bears ?

  56. “Every turnover is supposed to be reviewed. The ball hit the ground on the int which makes it an incomplete pass. I am really starting to think every NFL game is rigged or scripted.”

    lol. it was 3rd down. didnt need the int. when they punt we probably start at the 20. sooo… kind of blows up your conspiracy theory there, Mulder. 👽

  57. Control of replay/review at the NFL league office was the beginning of the end for the game of pro football. GB did what they could do to win that game, but no review after King’s Interception and then the penalty on Sherman? It seems to get clearer all the time that the NFL is influencing the outcome of games. Even listening to the owners refer to the games as “entertainment” not “sporting events” anymore makes one wonder. And then NFL owners investing in sports gambling and other sports entertainment “businesses”? What could possibly go wrong there?

  58. The ball never touched the ground, get your eyes checked if that’s what you think you saw.

  59. Yes the ball hit the ground and he maintained control. All turnovers are reviewed, they just saw no evidence to overturn the call. But don’t worry with people like this, you will all be killing each other over food in about 50 years. Just keep doing what your doing.

    You three need to learn the rules. Every turnover is reviewed, which means that the interception was reviewed. There was a review, end of story.

    Also, the ball can touch the ground and still be a reception/an interception. King controlled the ball before it touched the ground, had his hand under it as it touched the ground, and never bobbled it. No doubt an interception. Again, end of story.

    It’s an honor and a privilege to watch this team compete for a record 14th World Championship

  65. “That flag on Sherman was atrocious”.
    ___________

    No, it was not. Hitting a receiver 5 yards past the line of scrimmage is illegal contract. Grabbing a receiver around the chest and turning him in a different direction is defensive holding. Two fouls committed by Sherman on the same play.

  66. I loved seeing Richard Sherman make the stupid penalty which gave the Packers that critical first down last night. He was out there directing guys and saying he wanted to cover Graham. And then he made the most obvious hold he could make and got caught doing it.
    Richard Sherman has always been an over-rated DB who was helped big time because he had Earl Thomas in the secondary who made everyone look better than they were.
    Maybe Sherman will shut up for a little while now, since he cost his team that game!

  67. Complete BS, refs gave them the game. I’m getting tired of this, we shouldn’t have to hold our breathe on every single third down.

  68. After watching last night’s game, I have a better understanding of why so many Packer fans are fed up with McCarthy.

    The 49ers came into this game heavy underdogs, starting a backup QB and with one win on the season, and yet for most of the game they played like they had stolen the Packer playbook for both sides of the ball. Their defense looked completely unprepared, and got torched. If it wasn’t for Aaron Rodgers, the Packers would be exactly who they were last season after his injury; a sub-.500 team.

    Came here to watch Vikings’ fans and others say that King dropped the ball, the Sherman penalty didn’t happen, and Rodgers was faking his injury (after he was tackled by his left leg, where the injury is)- was not disappointed.
    //////////
    INT doesn’t matter. Would have punted in next down. Sherman penalty was easy call. Turned him around. And Rodgers absolutely limps when convenient, and runs at full speed when needed.

    49ers lost this game in the fourth. Sitting on a small lead in Lambeau is foolish. And then, to not even use clock at end of game? Worst case scenario you’d have a Hail Mary to end game or go to OT. You run the ball and use the clock, or maybe a screen pass on last drive.

  73. All this talk about the 49ers injuries. Yet not one mention that Green Bay was without their #2 and #3 wide receivers.
    They started 3 rookies.
    Its understandable the offense was sluggish. But only Aaron Rodgers can have a bad game with over 400 yards passing, 2 tds, and 0 interceptions, while running for his life with an injured O-line.

    Rules state it can touch the ground if it is under control by the player. Even the announcers agreed, whom are impartial.

  75. Nfl is a joke for not reviewing the int. which ball hits the ground. What happen to the under 2 minute automatic review rule? Those refs need to get fired and nfl needs to go away.

    Every turnover is supposed to be reviewed. The ball hit the ground on the int which makes it an incomplete pass. I am really starting to think every NFL game is rigged or scripted.

    ——————-

    So they overturn the interception and SF punts the ball on 4th and 10. Big deal. The real travesty in this game was the late flag against Richard Sherman for illegal contact. BS call away from the plat.

  77. The Packers just don’t look very good this year. Their defense has not improved like many packer backers said it would, and the offense is very inefficient. I turned on the game, expecting to watch for all of 5 min, because I figured the Packers would creme the 49ers, and I ended up watching the whole game. Packer fans should feel very lucky they did not lose that game. Like most of their games this year. Lucky to win against the Bears (one Interception away from losing), One missed field goal away from losing to the vikings, only convincing victory is against the Bills this year. Rams up next.

    The ball did touch the ground after being intercepted, which is allowed. Learn the rule.

  79. What a joke this league is turning into,told my kid on the 4th and 20 watch a flag will tossed, SURPRISE SURPRISE !!!!

  80. I think it was funny when Rodgers got sacked towards the end of the game and it looked as though the Yackers were going to lose he grabs his knee like “oh no, I “injured” it again. This is why we are losing” What a drama “queen”. Yacker fans better start wearing Swiss cheese on their heads because that is what your defense is! Enjoy the next 5 games after your bye.

    LOL! This makes me laugh soooo hard. Yacker fans start to boo their team as soon as they are behind in the score and do not take the lead the next series. better get used to that. Your 100 million dollar man is fragile as crystal and the rest of the team is not very good.

  82. As usual, you wade your way through the PFT comment board at your own risk, especially after a Packer win.
    Filled with a ridiculous amount of delusional opinions, mundane blather and irrational hate, I simply must be a masochist.

    First off, Kevin King’s interception was legit.
    Though it sure looked like it took him a while to finally secure it, whether it made contact with the ground or not can’t be determined and the ball never moves.
    Yes, it was reviewed, as EVERY turnover is regardless of the game clock.
    And the review decision was absolutely correct.
    Quite honestly, I was almost hoping it would’ve been overturned, as I was hoping for a touchback, and a few extra yards, on the ensuing punt.

    Secondly, Richard Sherman committed Illegal Contract at the most inopportune moment of the game.
    People can argue this as much as you want, but there is no doubt that Sherman wraps an arm around Adams shoulder downfield impeding his route, while Rodgers remained in the pocket, per the rule.
    It is the definition of Illegal Contact, unless you’re a Forty-Whiner fan, Barney, or just a plain Hater, in any case, I honestly don’t care about your opinion anyway.

    As for the game, though it was another nice comeback, this team appears to be in serious trouble.
    Regardless of the stats or rankings, this defense is just bad.
    I honestly don’t understand how so many teams are worse off than ours statistically.
    It used to be just frustratingly bad on 3rd downs, but now the wretchedness has permeated through downs one and two.
    The Packers are a long way off from being a playoff caliber team and we’re getting to a point in the season when they should be starting to make strides.

    Besides another phenomenal and gutsy performance by Rodgers, it was nice to see a couple of these young receivers make big plays.
    Especially the back shoulder catches, which are veteran moves for players that rarely see the field.
    Probably most important, the moment didn’t seem too big for them.
    I’m cautiously optimistic about this group and their future on this team.

    I’ll try and end this with something positive, and seriously, how can you not be thrilled for Mason Crosby?
    Classy professional, with a penchant for making bad cellular commercials, it was definitely the feel good story of the night.
    After probably the worst week of his professional career, he came up with several big kicks, including the game winner.
    It was a long frustrating week for the veteran, but it was great to hear how Rodgers and the rest of the team rallied around him and he was able to achieve a bit of redemption.

    Two weeks of rest and rehab and hopefully an opportunity to fix what’s become kind of a dilapidated house.
    The schedule certainly doesn’t get any easier.

  83. The minute Beathard threw that pick I turned off the TV and went to bed cause I knew how the game would turn out. Sure enough. Almost like it was… scripted or something.

  84. A lot of guys cherry pucking individual ofgiciating calls and calling them proof the game was rigged by the refs. But if you look at the game as a whole (and objectively) you will see missed or mistaken calls on several occasions. And those calls are going both ways too. Sure they are imperfections but really they balance each other out so neither team is getting an unfair advantage from them. (Someone will argue me on this by cherry picking a sngle call again). Also a few of the calls I see guys saying were wrong were not. Homey glasses are distorting some views. A perfectly called football game is an unrealistic expectation. They should always strive for that of course, but there is too much going on all over the place to catch every little thing. All that can be asked is for the ofgiciating to be high percentage correct, and for those few slip ups to be random things that cancel each other out.

    I saw a good hard fought game both teams deserved to win but unfortunately only one of them could. I did not see the officials being the deciding factor either way.

  85. I agree with another poster, Shanahan did a crapola job toward the end. Spent too much time with his silly play sheets and didn’t manage the game. Almost like MM does.
    You need like a few yards for a first down or at least FG position and you call a long pass play?
    Game would have been pretty much in the bag.
    The packers should send the 9rs number 26 a thank you card with money for being terrible. Shanahan again could have tried to do something but didnt.

    As expected there was at least one clown whining about the refs favoring the Packers. Apparently he didn’t see when some 49er threw Rodgers to the ground late for what should’ve been a roughing the passer to offset that grounding penalty. Or the uncalled PI on 4th down in the end zone to end the Packers’ 3rd to last drive. Or the rediculous (especially after those 2 uncalled fouls) late hit on the 49ers’ last kick return.
    ____________

    Even in victory, you can’t stop Packer fans from complaining about the officiating. I didn’t see the alleged uncalled roughing the passer call, but you can’t have PI if you don’t touch the receiver and a late hit out of bounds is pretty easy to see.

    Quit yelling Carl.

  92. I just came here to see Packer fans talk smack about barely beating arguably the worst team in the NFL at home. If a backup QB (Beathard) and a 3rd or 4th string RB (Mostert) can carve up that porous defense, imagine what good teams like the Rams, Patriots, Dolphins, Seahawks and Vikings are going to do. They only play one game at home in their next five. Hope Aaron can put up 50+, because that’s what it will take to even be in those games.

  93. I dislike the Packers as much as many of you do, but why is everyone disputing that interception.

    First, with the new rules, that was a catch. We should be thankful for those rule changes (just ask us Lions fans).

    Second, that interception might have been a gift to the 49ers – they would have had to punt anyways, and more than likely it would have been a touchback and GB would have gotten the ball at the 25 instead of the 7. All it gifted the Packers were a couple of seconds.

    The 49ers had an epic fail at the end, end of story.

    Easy does it on the cheese there big fella….

  96. Rodgers and the Refs led a game winning drive. The refs gave GB a fresh set of downs on a horribly called penalty on Sherman where it would have been 4th down and a GB punt.

    On any given season, you can take the packers win total and at least half of them will be ref related. I’ve never seen a flag fly as much on 3rd down as when the packer offense is on the field.

  97. That is why we play the game folks, was it dramatic….yes its just what the NFL wants. While it was a dramatic win and Crosby was the “hero” as the Monday night announcer said a billzillion times before the kick, how great A A ron is and he’s prolly the only reason the Packers are even competitive right now. Packers fans should be concerned about a few things:

    4 of 13 on 3rd downs

    Only 116 yards rushing compared to 174 for the 9ers

    Rodgers threw 46 times – thats a lot even for Rodgers

    405 yards passing that’s great, however a lot of the times you go over 350 you lose statistically speaking

    3-6 in the Red Zone

    6 penalties for 54 yards 9ers only two for a total of ten

    This is not just this game is a trend and a trend saying the Packers defense is really not that good and this was against a 1-4 team. Defense wins championships. The Packers in the coming weeks are going to go against some of the better defenses in the NFL, Packers need to shore that Defense up or you are going to see a lot of faces like you did with about 2 minutes left in the game last night. The only thing different with these up coming teams is they have veteran QBs who know how to close out a game and with the exception of Minnesota all have pretty decent running games to keep Rodgers off the field. The Packer do not have the defense or the running game to close out a team. Hence, the comebacks by Aaron. They only game they have closed out this year is the Bills, thats it.

    Can the Packers make the play-offs? Dunno the NFC North is wide open. If the Packers wanna go deep they better find a running game that is consistent and can run the clock out when they have a lead. You’re not gonna win shoot outs every week – the next few games should pretty much show NFL what kinda team Green Bay has.

    Wrong. He grabbed Davante's shoulder and damn near spun him into next week. Sherman himself said after the game that he needed better technique on the play and the 9ers couldn't afford a penalty.

    Exactly. A loss against the 49ers at home would be too much to ask, but it’s heartwarming to see that the Packers continue to not play very well, which suggests that they’re doing their best.

  103. If the NFL truly wanted the Packers to win, they wouldn’t have let the Bears and Lions get as far ahead of them as they did.

    Also, if the NFL wanted the Packers to win, the roughing call against Matthews during the Vikings game would never have been called. If there was ever a time to push a game in a certain direction, that would have been the time to do it.

    If you’re truly a fan of the NFL, you’ll realize that, like him or hate him, Aaron Rodgers is one of the most talented QB’s to ever play the game and he does some amazing things.

    If you’re simply an insecure partisan fan of a certain team, immature or lack knowledge of the game, or watch the teams that you hate with a subjective eye (while not holding your team to the same standards) or think that half of the games that Green Bay wins are ref driven and say other foolish things, you don’t know much about football and probably don’t really care to.

  104. I hear the same crying about the ref bias concerning both the Packers and the Patriots. IMHO its just a bunch of nonsense, both teams earn their wins. But still, in the interest of making the criers work hard ….if the Packers play the Patriots (and as a matter of fact they will) …who do the refs favor?

  105. I can’t help but wonder, if so many of you honestly believe that the NFL is biased and orchestrating the results to elevate the NFL’s smallest television market, why do you even bother to watch anymore.

    I mean, if I felt this way, I wouldn’t bother to even watch another game.
    Let alone, the countless hours spent on this site announcing your disdain for a league you believe is fixed.
    Personally speaking, my time is much too valuable.

  106. When Aaron Rodgers does it he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread, but Tom Brady did it the previous night against the Chiefs, and apparently it wasn’t as impressive (for some unknown reason)!

    Nice job refs. Illegal contact on 3rd and 19. Watch it. You are making it a little too obvious.

    Lolololol. Well played sir!!!

  110. did you guys see the awesome sidel8ne throws and pinpoint perfect td pass thrown by the refs!! me neither that was #12. sorry dodos, but the refs didnt do anything to change the outcome. maybe write your congressman? idk. and also, nobody cares if you stop watching the NFL. we only want you to stop posting nonsense on this site. lmao. fans are dumb.

  111. This game was exciting….at the end while at the same time disappointing. A Hall of Fame QB beats a second string QB by 3. Same said HoF QB is the # 2 rusher. What’s wrong with this picture Mike (I’m tired and have nothing new to offer)?Pack loses to Rams and Pats for sure.

    No mention that King dropped that interception. Final drive should have never happened.

    If the Ref’s call it incomplete, it’s fourth down and SF punts the ball. GB gets it in about the same position with about the same amount of time left.

    Sorry.

  113. Rodgers put up 2 clutch drives in a row at the end. Always great watching the greats play.

    BTW the fans complaining about that penalty at the end clearly don’t understand the rules. That was textbook. It’s going to get called every time it’s seen.
