Aaron Rodgers threw for four touchdowns and 305 yards as the Green Bay Packers beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-17

SANTA CLARA, Calif .– Aaron Rodgers took advantage of the under-equipped San Francisco 49ers rather than sympathizing with the squad that twice outscored their Green Bay Packers last season

Rodgers threw for 305 yards and four touchdowns and the Packers passed the exhausted 49ers 34-17 Thursday night

« They’re a different team on paper for sure, » Rodgers said. « They’ve had serious injuries to some really key players, but nobody feels sorry for anyone in this league. how it goes No one feels sorry for us We are dealing with injuries « 

Rodgers hooked up on deep shots to Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and a short draw to Marcedes Lewis in the first half to take the Packers (6-2) to a 21-3 lead over the Niners (4-5)

It was quite a reversal from the two games last season when San Francisco beat Green Bay by a combined 50-0 in the first half on the way to uneven regular season wins and game for the NFC title

The rematch was nothing like those games in part because the Niners were missing almost all of their key pieces of the game due to injuries and a positive coronavirus test for wide receiver Kendrick Bourne who also ruled out three of his teammates for « high risk » contacts

This left San Francisco without quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle), All-Pro tight winger George Kittle (foot), NFC title game star Raheem Mostert (ankle), wide receivers Deebo Samuel (ischio- Legs) and Brandon Aiyuk (COVID-19), left tackle Trent Williams (COVID-19 roster) and main defensemen Nick Bosa (knee), Dee Ford (rear) and Richard Sherman (calf)

“We knew it was going to be a challenge,” said 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan “We knew that early in the week it would be a challenge Losing those three guys yesterday would be a bigger challenge. I always thought that we could have a game… I know we could have done better « 

Rodgers and the Packers, who were missing three players on the COVID-19 roster, took the opportunity

Rodgers capped the first practice with a 36-yard shot at Adams, who made an acrobatic catch on Emmanuel Moseley in the end zone for his league-leading eighth TD reception of the season

Nick Mullens had an apparent TD throw at River Cracraft wiped out during the replay for San Francisco, then threw an interception at Raven Greene after backup left tackle Justin Skule was beaten for pressure from Preston Smith

This error led to Rodgers’ one-yard throw from Rodgers to Lewis and the Packers took control as Valdes-Scantling defended for the 52-yard catch at the end of the first half

« I know they were missing creatures on both sides of the ball, but this is one of the best defenses I think we’ve played despite the absence of some of these guys, » he said. ‘Packers coach Matt LaFleur « On offense it’s always difficult to face Kyle and the staff »

Adams finished with 10 catches for 173 yards, making him the Packers’ first player with three 150-yard receiving games since Donald Driver in 2006

“We’re definitely in a groove right now,” Adams said “I don’t have much to say about it, I don’t want to sound conceited or nothing, sound bad, but obviously when we starts to get into a rhythm like this, it gets much easier « 

Rodgers’ TD pass to Adams gave the Packers a first score for the eighth consecutive season opener The only other team to do this since 2000 was New England in 2007 The Patriots streak ended after eight games The Packers have four touchdowns and four field goals in early practice for the league’s top 40 points

Packers star running back Aaron Jones returned after missing two games with a calf injury He had an immediate impact, touching the ball in the first four games to gain 37 yards He finished with 15 carries for 58 yards, plus five catches for 21 yards

The 49ers’ only bright spot was the performance of wide receiver Richie James Jr, who had nine catches for 184 yards and one touchdown James entered the game with 295 yards in 32 career games

The injury streak and coronavirus rules have left the 49ers with a roster shell, especially on offense.They became the first team since the 1970 merger to play a game without its starting quarterback and six of his seven best players in scrimmage, outside of 1987 substitutes

Packers: CB Jaire Alexander (concussion), T Rick Wagner (knee), LB Krys Barnes (calf) and RB Dexter Williams (knee) all left the game and did not return

49ers: CB K’Waun Williams (ankle) and S Jaquiski Tartt (toe) left the match and did not return
