Welcome to Golden Gate Sports’ live game thread as we kick off the NFL season in the Bay Area with the San Francisco 49ers welcoming in the Green Bay Packers in a Week 1 matchup.
These teams met each other last season in the first game, in which the 49ers earned a 30-22 victory at Lambeau Field. They also faced off in the NFC Divisional Round of the postseason when Colin Kaepernick broke the record for rushing yards by a quarterback in an NFL playoff game with 181 yards on the ground. Kaepernick made the Packers look straight-up foolish as the 49ers eliminated the Packers from the playoffs.
However, Clay Matthew and Packers defense have vowed that they will be ready this time around. The 49ers will have their hands full with Aaron Rodgers under center for Green Bay, and we will see if their top-notch defense is up to the task.
Here’s all the info you need to know about the game:
