Carlson wasn’t the rationale Inexperienced Bay misplaced Saturday’s recreation, although he did not make issues any simpler for the Packers as he missed a 41-yard area aim simply earlier than the 49ers took a 24-21 lead on a landing from Christian McCaffrey.

Had Carlson made the sphere aim, the Packers would have gone up 24-17 and McCaffrey’s landing would have tied the sport as an alternative of proving to be the game-winner.

Regardless, Jordan Love finally price the Packers the sport after being picked off by 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw with underneath one minute remaining within the recreation.
