The 49ers went 64 yards on 15 plays to close out the half.
This is a stunner for the Patriots. They’re not used to such a poor offensive output in a half. This is the first time they’ve been held to 3 points in a first half this season.
Tom Brady is 10 of 19 for 76 yards and an interception, Shane Vereen fumbled on a screen pass, and the team has punted four times already.

Niners running back Frank Gore has 15 carries for 73 yards
6:04 2d quarter: 49ers 14, Patriots 3—The Patriots went three-and-out with Tom Brady failing to connect on two passes to Brandon Lloyd. Lloyd dropped one and the other was too low. On the punt, it looked like 49ers returner Ted Ginn Jr. had the ball hit his shin and was recovered by the Patriots. The officials spent a good amount of time discussing the play before ruling it was in fact not touched. The Patriots challenged the play and it was upheld
6:59 2d quarter: 49ers 14, Patriots 3—Colin Kaepernick hit a wide open Delanie Walker for a 34-yard touchdown. The drive was spurred along in part by a questionable pass interference call on Patriots corner Aqib Talib that gifted the 49ers 35 yards. It went only three plays and covered 80 yards
8:32 2d quarter: 49ers 7, Patriots 3—Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 32-yard field as the Patriots finally got on the board. Tom Brady was sacked on third down at the 49ers’ 7-yard line, finishing a the Patriots’ most promising drive of the night so far.

But Ray McDonald managed to get loose in the Patriots’ backfield to take down Brady for a six-yard loss
14:55 2d quarter: 49ers 7, Patriots 0—On a fourth and 1, Colin Kaepernick’s quarterback sneak went for no gain as the Patriots took over on downs. The 49ers’ Vernon Davis dropped a wide open touchdown in the end zone. If the 49ers had elected to kick a field goal on fourth down, David Akers would’ve attempted a 43-yarder
End of 1st quarter: 49ers 7, Patriots 0—The quarter comes to a close and I’m sure the Patriots already want to put it behind them. They’ve punted the ball three times and turned it over twice. The 49ers are driving, looking to add to their lead.
1:00 1st quarter: 49ers 7, Patriots 0—Shane Vereen fumbled a screen pass from Tom Brady. The fumble was forced by the 49ers’ NaVorro Bowman and recovered by Chris Culliver at the sideline.

2:14 1st quarter: 49ers 7, Patriots 0—A fake punt by the 49ers caught the Patriots by surprise. Safety Dashon Goldson rushed for 31 yards on fourth down. The 49ers weren’t able to capitalize on it though. David Akers missed a 39-yard field goal in the drizzly weather at Gillette Stadium.
6:13 1st quarter: 49ers 7, Patriots 0—The Patriots take the gift of a fumble and go three-and-out. Tough start for the Tom Brady led offense.
