Sports – Monday, January 6th, 2013

For the 2nd straight season, San Francisco knocked the Packers out of the
playoffs.    This time Phil Dawson kicked
a 33-yard field goal as time expired to advance with a 23-20 win.  The Packers and Niners went back and fourth
trading leads.  Green Bay took a 17-13 lead on a John Kuhn TD
with 12:06 left in the 4th quarter. San Francisco answered with a TD as Vernon
Davis caught a 28 yard TD pass.  Green
Bay looked like they might rally to take the lead but they couldn’t punch it in
with a 1st and goal at the 9 and settled for a field goal to tie the
game at 20.  The Niners marched down the
field and won it as time expired. Collin Kaepernick burned Green Bay on the ground with 98 yards rushing
including some big runs to keep drives alive. 
Eddie Lacy ran for 81 yards to lead the Packers.  Aaron Rodgers threw for 188 yards as the
Packers go home earlier than they had hoped again.
