49ers Vs. Packers Halftime Update: San Francisco Leads Green Bay 16-7

The San Francisco 49ers lead the Green Bay Packers 16-7 at halftime.

San Francisco wide receiver Randy Moss followed up on a 20 yard reception in the first quarter with a 14 yard touchdown to give the 49ers a 10-0 lead. It was Moss's 154th career touchdown, moving him into second place all-time amongst wide receivers. Check out a GIF of the reception here.

The Packers responded on their next possession, marching down the field and converting on a one-yard touchdown by tight end Jermichael Finley. Finley got in a scuffle with San Francisco's secondary on the previous play before the score.

The 49ers extended their advantage to 13-7 with a 43 yard field goal by David Akers. Akers was just getting started though, knocking in a 63 yard attempt at the end of the half to make it 16-7. That kick ties an NFL record for longest field goal in league history.

Both starting quarterbacks continued their efficient first quarter performances. Smith is 12/15 for 132 yards and a touchdown at the break, while Rodgers is 15/20 for 131 yards and a touchdown.
