Packers vs. 49ers score update: Colin Kaepernick hurls TD to make it 21-14

Turnovers are doing in the Green Bay Packers. Not long ago, they had forced the San Francisco 49ers to punt, and were about to get the ball back up 14-7. Since then, they've turned the ball over twice, and both of those turnovers have led directly to touchdowns. With just under six minutes remaining in the 2nd quarter, the Niners lead 21-14.

Aaron Rodgers executed a perfect armpunt on the Packers' most recent drive, hurling a prayer downfield for Jordy Nelson that got nowhere near the Packers receiver. Tarell Brown picked him off deep in his own territory, then pulled off an impressive return to grab great field position for the Niners.

Colin Kaepernick set his team back a bit by picking up a taunting penalty following a great first down run, but made up for it quickly by hitting Michael Crabtree with an absolute bullet of a 20-yard touchdown pass for his second passing touchdown of the game, as well as Crabtree's second receiving touchdown.
