NFL Gameday: Packers Vs. 49ers Quick Reactions

with one comment

First Defensive series:

  • TheĀ pressureĀ is getting there through the middle, but not so much from the left (defensive) side. Is Clay Mathews hurt?
  • Peprah is making plays in the run game and the screen, but he bit on Crabtree’s fake and gave up a big play.

What I’ve found is the following: Read the rest of this entry »
