GREEN BAY, Wis. – Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired to cap an 81-yard drive set up by Kevin King’s interception with 1:07 left, and the Green Bay Packers outlasted the San Francisco 49ers for a 33-30 win on Monday night.
The drive was extended after 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman was called for an illegal contact penalty on third-and-15 that wiped out a sack of Rodgers with 43 seconds left.
Rodgers later rushed up the middle for a 21-yard gain. The two-time NFL MVP then completed two more passes for 19 yards to set up Crosby’s game-winner for Green Bay (3-2-1).
The veteran kicker was perfect a week after missing four field goals in a loss at Detroit.
Rodgers threw for 425 yards and two scores.
C.J. Beathard passed for 245 yards and two touchdowns for the 49ers (1-5).
