Defense has to be improved

Is this the game the Green Bay Packers finally slow down Colin Kaepernick? The Green Bay Packers open the 2013-14 NFL season against the San Francisco 49ers for a second consecutive season, but unlike last year, the Packers will have to face dual threat quarterback Colin Kaepernick. It was not until the playoffs that the Packers got their first taste of Kaepernick, and boy was it a disaster.

Kaepernick had a mind-blowing game with 263 yards passing for two touchdowns and one interception, while rushing for an additional 181 yards and two touchdowns. The Packers defense looked terrible, and it will have to improve against the 49ers this season if they want a chance to win.
The Packers defense will be the key to the Packers success against the 49ers. They have had months to prepare for the 49ers offense, and they need to come out early and quiet all the critics. In order for the Packers to do this, they need to play smart, by not playing to aggressively and force the 49ers to throw the ball early.
The 49ers and Packers are two of the best teams in the NFL, and it will not be an easy game for either side to start the season. Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers ran all over the Packers defense in the playoffs a season ago, and things will have to be different this time around if the Packers want to win.
