49ers Literally Run Over Green Bay in 2021 Season Opener
SAN FRANCISCO, CA [IP] -
The Green Bay Packers opened the 2021 season on the road against the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers. The fans were anxious to see how these new look Packers would perform under their new GM and from the looks of things the team has a lot of work to do. Despite holding the 49ers out of the end zone, Green Bay had no answer for the running of Carlos Hyde as he racked up 190 yards rushing to set up five field goals by Niners kicker Tre Kindrey as the Niners cruised to a 15-10 win. The Packers were held to a woeful 138 yards of total offense while giving up 346 yards on the day. Packers return man Rashaan Jones returned a kickoff 95 yards for the only touchdown of the game.
The Packers travel to Soldiers Field to face their division rivals the Chicago Bears in week two.
