National Football League 49ers add Kaepernick to photo tribute after snub

49ers apologize for leaving Kaepernick photos out of gallery

The San Francisco 49ers issued an apology after omitting Colin Kaepernick from a photo gallery which marked key moments in team history against the Green Bay Packers.

The kneeling protest gained a higher profile past year when US President Donald Trump said players should be fired for such protests, calling anyone who kneeled for the anthem a "son of a bitch" who was insulting the nation and flag. Last night's game rating peaked from 11:15-11:30 p.m. ET with a 10.4 metered market rating.

Last night's postgame edition of SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt earned a 2.5 metered market rating, an increase of 39 percent vs. last year's comparable program following the Colts-Titans game (1.8). Battled all week to try to get his body ready to play.

Time for a third quarterback? Starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and running back Jerick McKinnon are both done for the year with knee injuries. Despite playing passively during the fourth quarter, Beathard made a decision to stretch the field on third-and-short when the team was just outside of field goal range. The 49ers determined Savage would get the call because he has the most experience. The Saints cut Savage after they traded for Teddy Bridgewater just ahead of the start of the season.

Savage saw action with the Texans in three seasons, appearing in 13 games with nine starts. The pair combined to catch 10 passes for 157 yards and a touchdown. Adams had 10 catches for 132 yards, one of three Packers receivers to go over 100 yards. With Ward on the sideline, Rodgers targeted Greg Mabin on the 16-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams to tie the score with 1:55 remaining in regulation. The offensive line held up in protection. This gallery of 49ers vs. Packers games was the first one the team posted this season.

"There was (talk) past year and I think I made that decision, just with the style of offence that we wanted to go with", Shanahan said.

DeForest Buckner, Sheldon Day and Ronald Blair recorded a sack apiece of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Davante Adams proved once again why he is a star and was there to catch the game tying touchdown in an nearly identical play from when Green Bay beat Dallas last season.

To be sure, much of the credit for that goes to Rodgers but the Niners had him on the ropes and they know they did their part in letting this one slip away and the blame, according to the Niners falls on the players' inability to execute the defense.

The temperature at kickoff was 37 degrees, making it the second-coldest October game at Lambeau Field since 1959, behind only the 36-degree Packers-Vikings game on Oct. 26, 1980.
