A major storyline going into the Green Bay Packers game with the San Francisco 49ers was how Green Bay's defense would deal with the 49ers' read-option running attack led by Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers gashed the Packers' defense in the playoffs last season to the tune of 323 yards on the ground in 45-31 victory. Even though the Packers lost 34-28 on Sunday, did they find a blueprint to slowing down the read-option?
Matt Williamson explains why the Green Bay Packers were able to stop the read-option but left their secondary vulnerable.
