The 49ers didn't get things started the way they intended in the first half. They began with an incomplete pass to tight end Vernon Davis, then had a twelve yard run from Frank Gore negated on a holding penalty from the aforementioned Davis. On 2nd and 20, right tackle Anthony Davis missed a block and Alex Smith was sacked for an eight-yard loss. He was slow getting up, and David Carr came in for the 49ers.
Carr's first pass from 3rd and 28 was the definition of underthrown and the 49ers were forced to punt. The game remains tied in the third at ten all.
