Stat Line of the Night — 9/8/2013 — Anquan Boldin
During the offseason, the San Francisco 49ers traded a sixth-round draft pick to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for Anquan Boldin. One week into the 2013 NFL regular season, it appears as though the Niners are the runaway winners of that trade.
In his first game as a member of the 49ers, Boldin hauled in 13 passes for 208 yards and a touchdown. Right from the get-go, he and quarterback Colin Kaepernick appeared to be on the same page, as the Packers secondary had no answer for the 49ers passing attack. The result was a 34-28 victory for the Niners.
The Niners entered the season as Super Bowl favorites and after week one they seem poised to make the oddsmakers look good. The acquisition of Boldin could be a key towards getting this team back to the big game, but for now he earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, September 8, 2013.
