San Francisco 49ers (1-0) 34, Green Bay Packers (0-1) 28
Sunday September 8th 2013 (at San Francisco)
(SAN FRANCISCO) - Colin Kaepernick kicked off his first full season as San Francisco's starting signal-caller with a resounding win over the same team he torched in last year's NFC Divisional Playoffs. Kaepernick threw for 412 yards and three scores, while Frank Gore's go-ahead 1-yard touchdown late in the fourth helped the reigning NFC champion 49ers claim a 34-28 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in the season- opener for both teams at Candlestick Park. Kaepernick completed 27-of-39 passes and became the first San Francisco quarterback to throw for 400- plus yards since Tim Rattay accomplished the feat on Nov. 10, 2004. Anquan Boldin, acquired from Baltimore for a sixth-round pick in the offseason, quickly asserted himself as Kaepernick's favorite target, hauling in 13 passes for 208 yards and a score. Vernon Davis added six catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns for the 49ers (1-0), who dropped a heartbreaking 34-31 decision to the Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII back in February. Aaron Rodgers finished 21-of-37 passing for 333 yards, three touchdowns and one interception, while Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb each caught seven passes for 100-plus yards and a score. Rookie running back Eddie Lacy rushed 14 times for 41 yards and a touchdown for the Packers (0-1), who won the NFC North for a second straight season last year before being bounced in the playoffs by Kaepernick and the 49ers. NOTES: San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh became the first coach in franchise history to win on opening day in each of his first three seasons ... Cobb finished with 108 receiving yards, while Nelson racked up a team-high 130 receiving yards ... Both teams registered 23 first downs ... San Francisco outgained Green Bay, 494-385.
