2013 NFL Playoffs, Packers vs. 49ers: Tied 14-14 after Michael Crabtree touchdown

A couple of horrible mistakes by the Green Bay Packers have absolutely gifted a touchdown to the San Francisco 49ers when momentum appeared to be very much against them. The Packers did very well to force a punt at midfield early in the 2nd quarter, but Jeremy Ross muffed his punt return, and the ball was recovered by the 49ers.

Big plays on 1st and 2nd down by the Packers' defense, including a sack by Erik Walden, appeared to set up a crucial stop for the Packers. But on 3rd down, Charles Woodson bit hard to the outside on crossing routes by San Francisco's wide receivers, leaving the center of the field wide open. Colin Kaepernick found Michael Crabtree down the center, and he was able to walk into the end zone.

In a matter of four plays, the Packers went from very much in control of the game to tied up with the Niners, and in need of an impactful drive.
