49ers Have 6-0 Lead Over Packers In Second Quarter

Checking in for some updates now, the 49ers lead the Packers 6 - 0 after a pair of Jeff Reed field goals. Reed was brought in after Joe Nedney continued to experience pains in his knee and the Shane Andrus experiment didn't totally work out against the Cardinals. Reed connected from 44 yards out on the 49ers opening drive, his first field goal above 40 yards this season. The 49ers drove 45 yards on seven plays.

The Packers responded with a less-than perfect drive. They took themselves downfield, to the ten yard line and using two timeouts along the way, which is almost inexcusable while playing at home. In another 49ers-esque moment, they were called for intentional grounding. The game kept going the 49ers way when Mason Crosby shanked a field goal attempt left.

The teams exchanged punts, and kept that going through the first until Reed nailed another field goal, this one from 26 yards out in the second quarter to give the 49ers their 6 - 0 lead.
