How many defensive backs does it take to bring down Donald Driver?

Trick question. Donald Driver can't be brought down -- at least not by the 49ers' secondary. 

Driver caught a pass from Aaron Rodgers in zone coverage in the third quarter Sunday and barreled through four Niners defensive backs on his way to the end zone (see video below). San Francisco's attempts to tackle were simply no match for his iron will. He was a 6-foot, 200-pound human bulldozer.

The 61-yard score broke the game open for the Packers, who went on to win 34-16 at home. At the time of Driver's catch, it was 14-13 Green Bay.

As usual, Rodgers was the player of the game for the Packers. He threw for 298 yards and three touchdowns -- two of which went to Greg Jennings.

Green Bay is now 8-4 (5-1 at home) and sits a game back of the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears, who have won five in a row, including a 24-20 win over Detroit on Sunday.

Driver, 35, has caught 34 passes for 364 yards this season and in all likelihood will miss the 1,000-yard receiving mark for the first time in seven years, but he came up big for Cheesehead Nation on Sunday. If nothing else, his long run guarantees him a spot in the highlight reel at the end of the season.
