49ers at Packers Monday Night Football Live Chat

49ers at Packers Monday Night Football Live Chat

The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers will meet in the finale of Week 6. The Monday Night Football game features two third place teams in their respective divisions, something not expected from either team this year. Who could use this game as a springboard to a climb to the playoffs? If it is going to be the Packers, they will be doing it with a banged up Aaron Rodgers, who is dealing with a knee injury. If it is the 49ers, they will do it with their backup quarterback, C.J. Beathard, after Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a torn ACL. You can join us in a live chat throughout the game...

The illegal contact on Sherman did happen

The illegal contact on Sherman did happen

Now whether it should have been called is another story. The defining play of the San Francisco 49ers 33-30 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football no doubt is the illegal contact penalty called on Richard Sherman. The 49ers defensive line managed a sack on Aaron Rodgers and a possible stop. DeForest Buckner gets sack No. 5.5 on third-and-long but it’s erased by an illegal contact penalty on Richard Sherman. #49ers #SFvsGB pic.twitter.com/np7NgRvYRE— Rob Lowder (@Rob_Lowder) October 16, 2018 Then at the last second.

Previewing Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ underperforming offense

Previewing Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ underperforming offense

Are the Packers actually playing poorly on offense? During quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ last healthy season in 2016, the Green Bay Packers ranked fourth in total scoring, eighth in total yards and first in passing touchdowns. That’s what fans have come to expect with any Rodgers-led team, yet this season, the Packers seem to be stuck in neutral. Through five weeks, Green Bay ranks 18th in total scoring, 10th in total yards and 12th in passing touchdowns. While Rodgers hasn’t been 100 percent with a knee injury, he still hasn’t missed any time, but the Packers’ offense seems to be...

Packers beat 49ers on final drive after huge Richard Sherman penalty

Packers beat 49ers on final drive after huge Richard Sherman penalty

The shoe is now on the other foot. On Monday Night Football, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers needed a 4th quarter comeback and a Mason Crosby field goal as time expired to beat the banged up, CJ Beathard-led San Francisco 49ers in a 33-30 thriller. One of the most important plays on Rodgers’ game-winning drive was not courtesy of Aaron, but former Seattle Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman, who had spent the entire night not even being thrown at. Facing with a 3rd and 15 deep in their own territory, with the 49ers possessing all three timeouts and less than a minute to go,...

Packers WRs Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison ‘likely’ to be inactive vs. 49ers

Packers WRs Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison ‘likely’ to be inactive vs. 49ers

This will help the 49ers struggling secondary. The San Francisco 49ers’ defense might catch a break in Week 6. Green Bay Packers wide receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison are “likely to be inactive” for Monday Night Football, according to ESPN’s Lisa Salters. Cobb and Allison were both limited throughout the practice week due to hamstring injuries. If inactive, this will be Cobb’s third straight absence. Allison suffered his hamstring injury last week and sat out Week 5. Davante Adams will be starting for Aaron Rodgers, and the rest of the wide receiver corps will include...

Week 7 NFL power rankings

Week 7 NFL power rankings

That was ... crushing. The San Francisco 49ers lost a heart-breaker on Monday Night Football to close out Week 6. They dropped a 33-30 decision to the Green Bay Packers thanks to a last second field goal that capped a 10-play, 81 yard drive in which it took barely over a minute for Aaron Rodgers to reach into their chests and firmly rip out the team’s heart. The 49ers dropped to 1-5 with the loss, and now sit tied with four other teams for the worst record in the league. For the fans of the “elegant tank,” it certainly was about as ideal a loss as one might imagine. The 49ers fought...

49ers’ rejuvenated play ruined by Rodgers’ rally

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Memo to the NFL: The 49ers are actually quite entertaining in prime time. Six days after the league booted the 1-4 sad sacks out of a national-television slot, the 49ers were involved in a wild and heartbreaking 33-30 Monday night loss to the Packers at Lambeau Field that presumably didn’t hurt TV ratings. In a game featuring 922 yards and an assortment of plot twists, the Packers rallied late behind All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Trailing 30-23, Rodgers began by tossing a 16-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Davante Adams with two minutes left. Then, after an...

3 keys for a 49ers’ victory against the Packers

What does Kyle Shanahan’s team need to do to find their winning ways? Sitting at 1-4, after losing their last three games, it doesn’t get any easier for the San Francisco 49ers. They travel to quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ house for a Monday Night Football showdown with the Green Bay Packers. Both teams are coming off of losses and look to build some momentum heading into the middle part of the season. Here’s what the 49ers will need to do in order to have some success in Green Bay and squeak out a victory. 1. QB C.J. Beathard and the 49ers’ offense can’t turn the ball over. The...

Golden Nuggets: Game Day!

Golden Nuggets: Game Day!

A daily compilation of 49ers news from around the net. Monday, October 15th, 2018 edition. Good morning folks, and although it’s Monday, I’d like to wish you a happy game day. Not much has changed since yesterday’s Nuggets, other than a few tweaks to the injury reports. The 49ers have added K’Waun Williams to the injury report, although he’s not exactly injured, just sick. The secondary is already beat up and somewhat underperforming, and his absence would certainly be felt. On the Packers’ side, QB Aaron Rodgers and TE Jimmy Graham have officially exited the injury report,...

MNF: 49ers vs Packers Game Thread

Monday Night Football, Week 6. Tonight the San Francisco 49ers travel to Wisconsin to take on the Green Bay Packers in a matchup of disappointing NFC teams. The 1-4 49ers were expected to make a run at the playoffs this year. However, once star quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo went down for the season the 49ers’ hopes were dashed. They have struggled to stay afloat, with 2nd year tight end George Kittle one of the few bright spots in a dismal season. The Packers almost suffered the same fate as the 49ers as Aaron Rodgers suffered a knee injury that has hobbled him throughout the season, though...

Golden Nuggets: Another heartbreaker

Golden Nuggets: Another heartbreaker

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Tuesday October 16, 2018 Boy, I’m really getting sick of this. The 49ers blew a lead and lost (yet again) another heartbreaker. This time to none other than many 49ers fans’ most hated foes: The Green Bay Packers. Prepare yourselves. This week will be filled with Aaron Rodgers praise on how great he is. How stuck in it to the end, how the Packers NEVER GAVE UP. And nothing on the missed holding call, two intentional groundings, missed PI (on the 49ers defense no less), and the illegal contact that occured after the sack on Aaron Rodgers. And...

The Takeaway, 49ers vs. Packers: Aaron Rodgers overcomes injury-riddled roster to keep Packers afloat

The Takeaway, 49ers vs. Packers: Aaron Rodgers overcomes injury-riddled roster to keep Packers afloat

The undermanned Packers dealt with even more injuries during Monday’s game against the 49ers, but Aaron Rodgers found a way to carry the team to victory. Still, even a two-time MVP quarterback can’t rescue Green Bay like this every week. After more than a month of early game struggles, the Green Bay Packers offense managed a fast start and scored on each of its first three possessions. Head coach and offensive play-caller Mike McCarthy displayed some badly needed creativity on those drives, utilizing misdirection, unbalanced formations, and, just as crucially, running back Aaron Jones...

Packers power rankings, Week 7: Green Bay outside top 10 despite Rodgers-led comeback

Packers power rankings, Week 7: Green Bay outside top 10 despite Rodgers-led comeback

The nature of the Packers’ win over San Francisco did little to assuage concerns about the team’s outlook. Monday’s come-from-behind victory might have kept the Green Bay Packers’ season afloat, but struggling against a markedly inferior opponent at home did little to assuage concerns about the team. In the edition of SB Nation’s NFL power rankings, the Packers finished 13th, their second consecutive week outside the top 10. Green Bay has endured plenty of ups and downs already this season. Certainly, Aaron Rodgers’ multiple fourth-quarter comebacks rank among the team’s...

Recap: Packers come back to stun 49ers 33-30 on Monday night thanks to Rodgers, Crosby

Recap: Packers come back to stun 49ers 33-30 on Monday night thanks to Rodgers, Crosby

After a horrific game against the Lions, Crosby came back to win the game against San Francisco thanks to some late-game heroics from Aaron Rodgers. Mason Crosby had an extra day to think about what he’d done. An all-time ignominious performance against the Lions with five missed kicks and the dreaded talk of the yips. Maybe the extra day gave him time to get right because when the Packers needed him to pull a victory out of the proverbial jaws of defeat, Crosby came through. In the post-game interview, Green Bay’s veteran kicker could barely find the words, admitting to being...

Monday Night Football open thread: 49ers vs. Packers

Greetings, Raider Nation! There is one more game this week, as the 49ers travel to the semi-frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. The Niners have several more games on prime time this year, which ares going to be completely unwatchable now that QB Jimmy Garropolo is out for the year. Whoops! The Packers, for the time being, still have Aaron Rodgers. He can win games on his own (right, Bears?) and he will have to considering the Packers are generally void of any other offensive talent. So will the winners be Whine, or Cheese? This game can be seen on ESPN at 5:20 PM Pacific and streamed on...

Watch MNF here. Week 6 of the 2018 NFL regular season ends tonight with a game between the Green Bay Packers (2-2-1) and San Francisco 49ers (1-4). It’s a battle of two NFC teams. The Packers are obviously heavy favorites in this one. Aaron Rodgers isn’t 100% healthy but that shouldn’t matter a ton while going up against the C.J. Beathard-led Niners.
