The San Francisco 49ers got to Aaron Rodgers early, as linebacker Fred Warner strip-sacked the legendary quarterback to set the offense up for a touchdown.

On 3rd-and-10, Rodgers dropped back to pass. He was immediately swarmed, and as he attempted to evade pressure from multiple angles, Warner wrapped him up and stripped the ball right before Rodgers’ knee hit the ground.

Nick Bosa recovered the fumble.

This huge play set the 49ers’ offense up inside the red zone. Then, running back Tevin Coleman, off the huge defensive play, followed through with a touchdown to go up 7-0.
