We're doing this quick post as a public service, because unless you're a San Francisco 49ers or Green Bay Packers fan, you were no doubt watching the insane overtime divisional playoff game between the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos. But we do feel obligated to let you know that when the 49ers and Packers kicked off late (the league moved the starting time back 25 minutes to accommodate the late finish of the first game), Green Bay's defense was the first on the board.
With 13:04 left in the first quarter, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick drifted to his left after receiver Michael Crabtree fell down on the Candlestick park turf. He was aiming for tight end Vernon Davis, but severely missed -- instead, the ball landed in the hands of Packers cornerback Sam Shields, who returned it 52 yards for a touchdown. Kaepernick scored to make the game even later in the first quarter with a 20-yard touchdown run.
