3:56 George Kittle is active.
5:20 The 49ers win the toss and defer. The Packers will receive the opening kickoff.
5:27 On third and 10 from the 49ers 25, Aaron Rodgers fumbles and the 49ers recover at the Packers’ two-yard line. Fred Warner stripped the ball from Rodgers and Nick Bosa recovered it.
5:27 On first and goal, Tevin Coleman runs into the end zone from two yards out. The 49ers lead 7-0.
5:34 On third and four, Geronimo Allison drops a pass over the middle, and the Packers go three and out. The 49ers get the ball at their 38-yard line after the punt.
5:41 On first and 10 from the Packers 39, Jimmy Garoppolo fumbles the snap, and Tevin Coleman recovers it after a loss of eight yards. The 49ers punt three plays later.
5:45 On third and nine, Jamaal Williams drops a screen pass, and the Packers go three and out.
5:53 On first and 10 from the Packers 41, Adrian Amos blitzes and sacks Garoppolo, but the sack doesn’t count because Packers cornerback Kevin King committed an illegal-hands-to-the-face penalty. Five plays later, the 49ers kick a field goal and take a 10-0 lead.
5:54 Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga has a knee injury and his return is questionable.
5:59 On third and 13, Jimmie Ward breaks up a pass intended for Davante Adams, and the Packers go three and out. They have committed three penalties and one turnover in the first quarter. They look like a team that doesn’t travel well. They haven’t yet showed up.
6:04 On third and six, Packers linebacker Blake Martinez blitzes from the edge, no one blocks him and he sacks Garoppolo for a seven-yard loss. The 49ers go three and out. They will punt when the second quarter begins.
6:13 On fourth and one from the 49ers’ 28, Fred Warner tackles Aaron Jones for no gain. Turnover on downs. That essentially is the Packers’ second turnover of the first half.
6:19 On second and 20, Za’Darius Smith schools Justin Skule and sacks Jimmy Garoppolo for a loss of 10. The 49ers punt two plays later after going three and out.
6:28 On third and eight, Jimmie Ward breaks up a perfectly-thrown deep pass intended for Jimmy Graham. Ward has broken up three third-down passes already. He’s having one hell of a game.
6:36 Chase McLaughlin makes a 27-yard field goal to give the 49ers a 13-0 lead. George Kittle caught two passes for 40 yards during that drive.
6:40 On third and six, Rodgers throws an incomplete pass intended for Aaron Jones. Ahkello Witherspoon was the closest defender and he had good coverage. After a mere 32-yard punt, the 49ers get the ball at their 41 with 2:00 minutes and one timeout left. They also will get the ball to start the second half.
6:45 On second and six, Deebo Samuel catches a pass over the middle and runs across the field for a 41-yard touchdown. What a player. The 49ers lead 20-0.
6:51 On third and eight, Nick Bosa sacks Rodgers, and the Packers go three and out. Rodgers has the yips.
6:53 McLaughlin makes a 47-yard field goal, and the 49ers lead 23-0 at halftime.
7:11 On second and 16, Preston Smith and Za’Darius Smith both sack Garoppolo for a loss of nine. The 49ers punt two plays later.
7:26 On first and goal from the two, Rodgers taps a pass to Davante Adams running a jet sweep, and he scores an easy touchdown. The Packers go for two and convert, as Rodgers hits Adams in the back-left corner of the end zone. The 49ers lead 23-8.
7:32 On first and 10 from the 49ers 39, Garoppolo throws a 61-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Kittle. The 49ers lead 30-8. I’m starting the think the Packers aren’t good.
7:50 On fourth and 8, Arik Armstead and Jaquiski Tartt sack Rodgers. What an amazing performance by the 49ers. They’re the real deal.
7:59 On first and 10 from the Packers 15, Raheem Mostert rushes for a touchdown. The 49ers lead 37-8. This is the most important game the 49ers have won since they beat the Panthers in the playoffs almost six years ago.
8:03 Nick Boyle has replaced Rodgers at quarterback.
