Wild Card playoff: Top 3 performance moments

Posted Jan 7, 2014

A quick glance at the highlights from Packers vs. 49ers


WILLIAMS INTERCEPTS KAEPERNICK

With the 49ers looking to add to their 6-0 lead early in the second quarter, Packers CB Tramon Williams intercepted QB Colin Kaepernick’s pass intended for TE Vernon Davis along the right sideline at the Green Bay 13-yard line. Following a 17-yard return on which Williams took on Kaepernick head on, the Packers offense capitalized with a 14-play, 70-yard touchdown drive to take the lead.

RODGERS ESCAPES SACK, FINDS COBB ON FOURTH DOWN

Trailing 13-10 early in the fourth quarter, the Packers faced fourth-and-2 from the San Francisco 30-yard line. Under heavy pressure, QB Aaron Rodgers miraculously escaped a sack and fired a strike up the seam to WR Randall Cobb for a 26-yard gain, making it first-and-goal. Two plays later, FB John Kuhn plunged in from the 1-yard line and the Packers had the lead again.

ANOTHER RODGERS-TO-COBB CONNECTION HELPS TIE THE GAME

Down 20-17 midway through the fourth quarter and driving, Rodgers again found Cobb on the run for a 25-yard gain to make it first-and-goal. 49ers S Eric Reid made a shoestring tackle of Cobb at the 9-yard line or he might have scored. That tackle proved big, as the Packers weren’t able to get it in the end zone and had to settle for a tying field goal.

    For now, Ohio State’s Curtis Samuel is listed as a wide receiver, but he did just as much damage as a running back and returner in college as well. That leaves his NFL future somewhat in doubt, as far as where he fits best, but that’s nothing new to this explosive, hybrid weapon.

    A first-team All-Big Ten selection two years in a row at guard, Pat Elflein was asked to move to center in 2016. How did he do? He not only was named first-team all-conference again, but he was a consensus All-American and the Rimington Trophy winner as the nation’s top center in his first year full-time at the position. So what will he play in the NFL? Guard or center?

    Penn State receiver Chris Godwin has put up some pretty good numbers, with 128 catches for just over 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns over the last two seasons. But he wants NFL teams to know his game is more than just the numbers.
