49ers are going to Miami
Richard Sherman seals the deal. The 49ers are NFC Champions and are going to the Super Bowl in Miami. They will face the Kansas City Chiefs. Final score 37-20
Robbie Gould makes this a three possession game. I think Jimmy Garoppolo has thrown like, six passes. Oh well. Barring disaster, the 49ers should get this despite taking their foot off the gas. 37-20, Niners
Yet another Packers score. I don’t know about you, but this scares me. It’s 34-20, 49ers.
Jimmy Graham. Touchdown. The start of the fourth quarter is garbage time. Packers failed the two point conversion. It’s now 34-13
Kyle Shanahan is holding a clinic. The Packers managed a score to get on the board, but the 49ers steamrolled down the field again with yet ANOTHER Raheem Mostert run. It’s now 34-7, 49ers.
The Packers took 6:30 minutes of our lives and managed to get into the endzone. They can have drives like that all day as long as the 49ers offense can start chipping time. It’s 27-7, 49ers.
Emmanuel Moseley. UDFA cornerback. Recent named starter. Interceptor of Aaron Rodgers
The 49ers moved down the field after the turnover and managed a Robbie Gould field goal. It’s 20-0, 49ers.
The Packers found a way to move down the field, and then the crowd noise had to get into it and cause a muffed snap, recovered by DeForest Buckner. The 49ers are on the 30. They have a chance to finish this thing.
Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert are ramming the ball down the Packers’ throats, but it looks like Coleman is down on the field.
The 49ers got to the Packers. Again. Except this time the Packers didn’t lose it. It set up a 4th and a mile with a shanked punt. 49ers get the ball on their 40.
If they can’t put together a touchdown drive here...
The 49ers let time expire into the first quarter and Robbie Gould started things with a 54-yard field goal.
It’s 10-0, 49ers.
Not sure what the plan is for the Packers on this “fast start,” but it’s safe to say it isn’t working.
The 49ers went 3-and out and the Packers didn’t fare much better, getting a first down and then a stop.
But then the 49ers drew first blood thanks to a genius Raheem Mostert playcall on 3rd and 8. It’s 7-0 49ers.
This is it. The NFC Championship. The No. 1 seeded San Francisco 49ers host the No. 2 seeded Green Bay Packers in the 2019 NFC Championship game with a trip to Miami and Super Bowl LIV on the line. This will be an afternoon game with a 3:40 PM start time. Joe Buck will be calling while Troy Aikman provides commentary. Erin Andrews will be on the sidelines.
The 49ers dominated their first playoff game with the Minnesota Vikings winning 27-10. That may have been the toughest defense they will face in the NFC and the 10 points scored were on mental mistakes (a Jimmy Garoppolo throw for three points and starting Ahkello Witherspoon for seven). With the exception of center Weston Richburg and defensive tackle/nose tackle D.J. Jones, they have everyone healthy and ready to go. The 49ers have played the Packers in the regular season, blowing them out 37-8. Aaron Rodgers had his worst game as a pro in this and the narrative all week is how the Packers are ready for the 49ers. Well, this blowout was done with several key cogs missing from the 49ers. They are all back now. While the Packers were missing right tackle Bryan Bulaga, and wide receiver Davonte Adams battled turf toe, they were healthy for the most part, and they still got smoked.
The Packers are coming into this with a 13-3 record from the regular season. A 13-3 record that had them mimicking the Seattle Seahawks best they could by pulling wins out of nowhere each week. The Packers had the weakest strength of schedule (.453) per Tankathon beating only a handful of teams with winning records. One of which came against a Pat Mahomes-less Kansas City Chiefs squad. Their postseason win involves their victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Green Bay. A game that had many struggles against what should have been an inferior team. But that won’t matter. Aaron Rodgers is dialed in as is the rest of the Packers and they are looking to take this early and not suffer another blowout.
The 49ers are fully healthy for this game with everyone a full-go as Kyle Shanahan has said. They didn’t have defensive end Dee Ford or safety Jaquiski Tartt for the first game and will get both back for this.
The Packers have fullback Dan Vitale listed as questionable. Punter JK Scott is also questionable due to illness
