Aaron Rodgers to Davante Adams. Put it on repeat.

Four days after he caught three touchdown passes for the Green Bay Packers against the Minnesota Vikings, Adams went back to work almost immediately. He hauled in a 36-yard, outstretched touchdown that survived a replay review — one that showed he got one foot down and one elbow down against tight coverage from 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley.

The 36-yarder was the most air yards on a passing touchdown from Rodgers to Adams in their careers, according to ESPN Stats & Information, and it was Rodgers’ seventh completion of the season of at least 35 air yards, tied with Russell Wilson for most in the NFL.

For Adams, it was his league-leading eighth touchdown catch this season, and he missed two games because of a hamstring injury.

It also meant the Packers are now 8-for-8 scoring on game-opening drives this season. They entered the game with an NFL-high 33 points on opening drives this season.

Returning to the lineup, Packers running back Aaron Jones was impresive on the opening drive as well. He rushed two times for 17 yards and caught two passes for another 20 yards.
