Kaepernick extends game-winning drive, runs for 11 (GIF)

The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers went back and forth in the 4th quarter from Lambeau Field.

After a John Kuhn 1-yard touchdown run capped off a 12-play, 80-yard Green Bay drive, San Francisco took just 4 plays and 63 yards to reach the end zone and reclaim the lead 20-17.

49ers’ quarterback Colin Kaepernick set up the score with a 24-yard run to the Green Bay 33-yard-line.  Facing a 3rd down and 4 from their own 43, San Francisco’s pass play was covered and Kaepernick took off for the sideline and upped his rushing yardage total to 87 on 6 carries for the day.

Two plays later – after a Green Bay defensive holding penalty – Kaepernick connected with tight end Vernon Davis for a 28-yard touchdown in traffic.

Green Bay took their next drive 11 plays and 61 yards but managed only a 24-yard Crosby field goal to tie the game at 20 apiece.

San Francisco got the ball back with 5:06 left on the clock and took every second of it in their 14-play, 65-yard drive.

The 49ers converted three 3rd downs during the drive, including a Kaepernick 17-yard pass to Michael Crabtree on 3rd-and-10, a Kaepernick 8-yard run on a 3rd-and-8 and a Frank Gore 3-yard run on 3rd-and-3.

Check out the Kaepernick drive-extender below.  He uses his speed to get around the corner and down the sideline to move the chains.


Kaepernick ended up with 7 rushes for 98 yards on the day and threw for 227 on 16-of-30 passing with a TD and an interception.
