Views, news, quotes and notes from one wild wild-card weekend in the NFL:
SAN FRANCISCO 49ers-GREEN BAY PACKERS
Five things about the third fab football game of the four played:
1) The Niners defence held Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers without a completion, and the Packers offence without a first down, until 11:45 remained in the first half. Uh, yeah.
2) The Niners held Eddie Lacy, who led the NFL in rushing over the last 11 weeks, to only 3.9 yards per rush: 81 yards on 21 carries.
3) The Niners handed the ball off to their running backs only 16 times, and gained just 55 yards, before their final drive. Never would have believed it. The Packers defied offensive coordinator Greg Roman to empower Colin Kaepernick to throw, and Roman obliged. Kaepernick made the Packers pay with his arm and his feet on killer scrambles.
