The San Francisco 49ers are incredibly shorthanded on Thursday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers, and it is providing wide receiver Richie James a huge opportunity. Late in the game, he has 7 receptions for 169 yards and a touchdown. He entered the game with no catches on the season.

He’s been getting wide open at times, and there was nobody close on his 41-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown.
