Just when things seemed to be getting ugly, they quickly turn around. The San Francisco 49ers took care of business Sunday afternoon in defeating the Arizona Cardinals 27-13, to clinch the NFC West championship. No more than 20 minutes after the conclusion of the 49ers win, the team received a monstrous gift courtesy of Adrian Peterson. Behind All Day, the Minnesota Vikings upset the Green Bay Packers, secured themselves a playoff spot, and got the 49ers into the No. 2 spot.
Now that the playoffs are set, we've got some important details to get you ready for what we all hope is a loooong run into February for the 49ers. The team gets to sit and wait for the wild card round to get sorted out. Below I have posted pertinent information, including the playoff bracket, potential 49ers opponents, the game time for the 49ers second round game, and early information on individual ticket sales.
