It's game time! The San Francisco 49ers are back for their Week 4 matchup with the Green Bay Packers. The game kicks off at 1:25 p.m. PT at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. FOX has their No. 1 crew in town, which means more Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Erin Andrews in your life. The 49ers enter the game at 1-2, coming off an ugly loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The Packers are 3-0, coming off a Monday Night Football win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
I am not wildly optimistic about this one. The Packers coming into the game on a short week, so that is something in the 49ers favor. But the 49ers will need more than that to beat Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Rodgers is playing incredible football right now, and the 49ers defense has been shredded the last two weeks by Ben Roethlisberger and Carson Palmer. They will need one heck of a game plan in Week 4 if they are going to hang with Rodgers.
And let's not forget about the offensive line. If the right side struggles again, it will be a long day for Colin Kaepernick and Carlos Hyde. If the line can put together something remotely cohesive, it could bode well for the 49ers offense. Of course, if Kap makes poor decisions like what we saw last week, it could still be a long day.
We'll have a few threads throughout the course of the game, and a recap immediately after. One thing I have added to the threads this year is the 49ers media Twitter list. If you cannot watch the game, you can follow some of the updates in there/ We'll have plenty to break down after the game, but for now, here's your first quarter game thread.
