49ers-Packers final score
The 49ers lost on a last second field goal in regulation 33-30. Because Aaron Rodgers. That’s just how he does :(
49ers lead heading into the second half
The 49ers closed out the second quarter with a field goal as time expired to take a 24-20 lead into the locker room. The Packers will receive the kick to open the third quarter. For the first half, C.J. Beathard was 9/12 for 182 yards and two touchdowns, as well as 20 rushing yards. Matt Breida had 37 yards on eight rushes, while Raheem Mostert led the team with 52 yards on five carries. Marquise Goodwin leads the receivers with 114 yards and two touchdowns. On defense, Sheldon Day has a sack, and Reuben Foster leads the team with seven tackles.
49ers take the lead
The Packers have had opportunities to score, but have only managed a field goal since their touchdown gave them a 17-7 lead. The 49ers just took the lead with Marquise Goodwin scoring his second touchdown of the game. This one came on a 30-yard pass that saw Goodwin get wide open after a great in-fake on the route. Goodwin now has 114 receiving yards to go with his two touchdowns. C.J. Beathard is 8/9 for 178 yards and two touchdowns. The 49ers lead 21-20.
Marquise Goodwin strikes!
The Packers took a 17-7 lead on an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass to Davante Adams, but the 49ers quickly responded. After a couple strong Matt Breida runs, C.J. Beathard went deep, finding Marquise Goodwin behind the Packers secondary for a 67-yard touchdown. The 49ers currently trail 17-14. Check it out below.
Packers get on the board
The Packers have taken a 10-7 lead after a touchdown and a field goal. The Packers picked up 60 yards on their first play of the game on a play action pass. That was followed by a 16-yard Aaron Jones run that was capped by this touchdown pass. The 49ers looked confused by the 4-receiver diamond set.
49ers kick returner D.J. Reed fumbled on the ensuing kickoff, but the 49ers defense settled down against the Packers to hold them to a field goal. It is currently 10-7 Packers.
49ers score on opening drive
The 49ers did not waste any time moving down the field on their opening drive. They went 75 yards on 7 plays, capping the drive with a Matt Breida touchdown run from the 3-yard line. The two biggest plays on the drive were a C.J. Beathard 17-yard pass to Marquise Goodwin, and a 22-yard pass to Kendrick Bourne. Beathard was 3/3 for 48 yards, and Breida had ten yards and a touchdown on two rushes. They lead 7-0 in the first quarter.
The 49ers will be going with cornerback Greg Mabin opposite Richard Sherman. Ahkello Witherspoon has been in and out of the starting lineup, and the switch continues. The 49ers have rotated corners opposite Sherman, so we’ll see if that continues against the Packers.
The 49ers got some good news on Monday. Running back Matt Breida is active after an ankle sprain had him doubtful earlier in the week. Here are the full lists of inactives for the 49ers and Packers.
49ers inactives: WR Dante Pettis, WR Trent Taylor, TE Cole Wick, OL Joshua Garnett, OL Shon Coleman, DL Jullian Taylor, DL D.J. Jones
Packers inactives: QB Tim Boyle, WR Randall Cobb, CB Jaire Alexander, CB Bashaud Breeland, OL Alex Light, OL Jason Spriggs, WR Geronimo Allison
Matt Breida, George Kittle, Pierre Garçon both likely to play
Good news from Adam Schefter, who is reporting Breida, Kittle, and Garçon are all expected to play on Monday Night Football. The 49ers promoted Ross Dwelley from the practice squad, which raised questions at tight end. However, Cole Wick was seen working out before the game with injured and likely inactive players — which suggests he will be down and Kittle and Garrett Celek will both be up. This is big for the 49ers offense.
49ers promote TE Ross Dwelley
The 49ers made a roster move on Monday that suggests Matt Breida might play against the Packers. The team promoted tight end Ross Dwelley from the practice squad and released defensive end Ryan Delaire. The decision to not promote a running back suggests they feel good about Breida’s status for Monday night. Meanwhile, George Kittle is listed as questionable with a knee injury, while Garrett Celek was limited early in the week with a quadriceps injury. One of the two will probably be inactive for Week 6.
Packers wide receivers injury update
Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison are both “likely to be inactive” for Monday Night Football, according to ESPN’s Lisa Salters. Both were listed as questionable with hamstring injuries and were limited in practice. In their potential absences, Davante Adams will be followed on the depth chart by some combination of rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, and J’Mon Moore.
Matt Breida injury update
The 49ers’ most significant injury heading into Monday night is Matt Breida’s ankle. He suffered the injury last week and missed Thursday and Friday practice. He was limited on Saturday and listed as a game-time decision. A Monday morning report stated he was pushing to play, but was still a game-time type of decision. The 49ers have until 1 p.m. PT to promote a player from the practice squad, and then have to announce inactives by approximately 3:45 p.m. There will be plenty to track until then.
It’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these. By “these” I mean a Monday Night Football matchup for the San Francisco 49ers.
Unfortunately, on paper at the start of the 2018 season, this seemed like a fun game against the Green Bay Packers. The 49ers are decimated by injuries, having lost Jimmy Garoppolo and Jerick McKinnon to ACL tears and the rest of the team has slotted in and out from numerous dings and bangs. The 49ers currently sit at 1-4 and after an awful loss to a winless Arizona Cardinals team, all trajectory points downwards with some predicting them to have the first pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Despite the numbers, C.J. Beathard is not a bad quarterback, but he’s still a backup and he’s working with a limited running game and injured pass catchers besides the reliable George Kittle.
The Green Bay Packers have their own issues. In Week 1, Aaron Rodgers suffered a knee injury that has still been lingering in the weeks after. They also have had their wide receivers go on a musical chairs-like carousel with injuries. Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb are the latest contestants while Davante Adams gets a break from the game being a full participant.
For Week 5, the Packers have Allison and Cobb both listed as game-time decisions. Rodgers was not listed on the practice report for Saturday, so he should be good to go this evening.
The 49ers will be without wide receivers Dante Pettis (knee) and Trent Taylor (back). Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is good to go for making his return from injury this week while running back Matt Breida (shoulder) is a game-time decision.
