SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Aaron Rodgers passed for 224 yards and a touchdown, ran 17 yards to set up a key second-half score, and the Green Bay Packers beat the hapless San Francisco 49ers 17-3 on Sunday for their first 4-0 start in four years.
Richard Rodgers caught a 9-yard touchdown pass on the game's opening drive before Rodgers got his team going in the second half after a slow start to snap a four-game losing streak to San Francisco, which included a pair of playoff defeats.
Clay Matthews added his own flair to this one. When he sacked Colin Kaepernick in the third quarter, he kissed his right biceps Kaepernick-style to punctuate the play - one of Green Bay's six sacks.
While methodical with nothing fancy, Green Bay (4-0) seemed unfazed with a short week and long trip West after beating Kansas City last Monday night.
