After somewhat of a scoring flurry – if you want to call it that – at the end of the first half, neither the San Francisco 49ers nor Green Bay Packers have been able to get anything going on offense so far in the third quarter.
The teams have exchanged punts and the defenses have taken over in the frigid temperature at Lambeau Field.
During Green Bay’s second possession of the second half, Aaron Rodgers was sacked on consecutive plays after he couldn’t find an open receiver.
The first was by 49ers’ defensive end Aldon Smith for an 8-yard loss.
Check out the play below, it seemed like more of a coverage sack than anything else and it set the Packers back quite a way.
San Francisco linebacker Ahmad Brooks recorded the second sack with Rodgers back in the shotgun formation. The loss of 5 yards set up a 3rd and 23 play that wasn’t converted after a deep pass attempt to Jordy Nelson was thwarted by 49ers’ cornerback Tarrell Brown.
Green Bay and San Francisco remain within a field goal of each other as the clock approached zero in the third frame.
The Packers have thrown for a net of 81 yards and rushed for 95 yards on 22 carries. San Francisco has thrown for 147 and rushed for 111 on 21 carries.
