Carlos Rogers' airtight defense helped San Francisco beat the Packers 30-22 in last season's opener.

The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers open the season on September 8 with a rematch of the NFC divisional game, when Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick ran for a record 181 yards to lead his team to a 45-31 victory.

Kaepernick is expected to dominate again on Sunday, but the rest of the roster is filled with question marks. The offense is missing some key players, and the defense will be challenged by the Pack Attack.

While the opener does not always foreshadow the rest of the season, San Francisco is eager to get off to a hot start before playing NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.
