SANTA CLARA -- Anquan Boldin's 208-yard receiving debut helped the 49ers win Sunday's opener and it landed him the NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors.

Boldin caught 13 of 17 passes from Colin Kaepernick, including a 10-yard touchdown toss, in a 34-28 victory over the Green Bay Packers.

Boldin's performance trumped that of Kaepernick for the NFC honor. Kaepernick, who's never won the NFC's weekly award, passed for a career-high 412 yards and three touchdowns.

Asked Monday who he'd vote for regarding this week's NFC offensive award, coach Jim Harbaugh replied: "I'm partial so it'd probably be a 49er player."

The only other time since 2009 that a 49ers offensive player secured the NFC Offensive Player of the Week honor was Alex Smith for his final full start, last October at Arizona.

Defensive end Robert Quinn of the St. Louis Rams is the NFC's Defensive Player of the Week, and the Dallas Cowboys' Dwayne Harris captured the special teams honor.

Special-teams ace Kassim Osgood is re-signing with the 49ers, as first reported Monday night by the Monterey Herald's John Devine. Osgood was among the 49ers' final roster cuts Aug. 31, and had he been on the 49ers' opening-day roster, his $940,000 base salary would have been guaranteed.

It's unknown who the 49ers will release to make room for Osgood.

The 49ers coverage units fared fine against the Packers, not allowing a return longer than 17 yards. This week, the 49ers visit the Seattle Seahawks, who saw Golden Tate return four punts for 48 yards (long of 22) in their season-opening win at Carolina.
