Found September 09, 2012 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
GREEN BAY, Wis. It took until Week 15 last season for the near-perfect Packers to finally lose. But with the 49ers in Green Bay on Sunday, Alex Smith, Frank Gore and San Francisco's elite defense didn't let the Packers even get out of Week 1 without their loss this season. The 49ers, who were an overtime win away from reaching the Super Bowl in 2011, came into Lambeau Field and dominated Green Bay for the majority of the game, beating the Packers, 30-22. Green Bay found out last season, though, that a 15-1 regular-season record doesn't do much good if the team isn't playing its best when the playoffs begin. That's why Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is already looking forward to seeing the 49ers again, a hypothetical rematch that would have to take place in the postseason in order to happen.

From the first tick off the game clock, Green Bay was snuffed out in...
