Packers vs. 49ers score update: Green Bay leads 14-7 after 1st quarter

It's been an exciting quarter of play at Candlestick Park, with momentum swinging back and forth dramatically between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers. Colin Kaepernick has been responsible for spectacular touchdowns for both teams, while DuJuan Harris has come to life and is the difference between the two teams so far. After one quarter of play, Green Bay leads 14-7.

Kaepernick kicked things off with an interception on his first drive, which was returned for a touchdown by Sam Shields. He bounced back with a great second drive, capping it off with a 20-yard run on a crucial 3rd down and 8 play to tie up the score at 7-7.

The Packers went three-and-out on their first drive after attempting three passes -- two unsuccessfully -- but started running the ball on their second offensive possession. Harris was massive on the drive, picking up 36 yards on five carries, including a big first down on 3rd and 1 and a brilliant 18-yard touchdown run.

So far, this game is everything that everyone thought it would be. It's dead even, the offenses are explosive, and the defenses are making occasional big plays even though they're struggling to keep up.
