Packers’ Jordan Love connects with Bo Melton for TD
The fourth time was the charm for the Green Bay Packers in the red zone.
After coming up with just a pair of field goals on their first three trips inside the San Francisco 49ers‘ 20-yard line, the Packers finally found the end zone on a 19-yard touchdown from quarterback Jordan Love to receiver Bo Melton to give the Packers a 13-7 lead with 9:27 left in the third quarter.
49ers safety Tashaun Gipson Sr. slipped in coverage on the play.

It came one play after a 41-yard pass interference penalty — also on a throw to Melton — against cornerback Ambry Thomas. That came on a third-and-15 from the Packers’ 40-yard line on a drive that was seemingly going nowhere.
