GREEN BAY, Wis. –
“The Packers pulled it out, but I think the assist goes to the 49ers ” is what 2K sports Network annalist Skip Bayless said following the 49ers 24-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers. On paper the 49ers were out played in just about every part of the game. Aaron Rodgers finished the game with a QB rating of 116.6, completed 25 of 36 passes, threw 2 interceptions and 3 touchdowns for a total of 465 yards. Alex Smith finished the game with a QB rating of 60.8, completed 15 of 30 passes, threw 2 interceptions and 1 touchdown for a total of 243 yards. One of the two interceptions thrown by Alex Smith proved to be costly. With under four minutes left in the game, the 49ers in the redzone, Smith threw a pass that was intercepted by Green Bay Packers CB Jarrett Bush.
“It was my fault, you know, no excuses. We had a great chance to not only tie the game but to take the lead with under four minutes, but that second interception cost us the game.” said Alex Smith after the game. Coach Nguyen was just as upset following the loss, stating that he was very disappointed with how his defense played today and would make sure to have his team ready for next week when they take on the Detroit Lions.
