SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Colin Kaepernick struck for three scoring passes en route to 412 passing yards Sunday in San Francisco's 34-28 season-opening win over Green Bay.

Kaepernick completed 27-of-39 passes for the 49ers (1-0), who posted a victory in their first game since falling to Baltimore 34-31 in Super Bowl XLVII.

Frank Gore put San Francisco ahead to stay at 31-28 with a 1-yard touchdown run with 5:47 left in the game.

Former Raven Anquan Boldin made 13 catches for 208 yards and a score in his 49ers debut, and Vernon Davis contributed six grabs for 98 yards and two touchdowns.

Green Bay (0-1) got a 333-yard, three-touchdown passing performance from Aaron Rodgers but it wasn't enough for the NFC North champions.

Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb combined for 238 yards on 14 catches for the Packers.
