Story of the Game

Aaron Rodgers led the Packers on an impressive 10-play, 69-yard opening drive capped by a six-yard rushing score by A.J. Dillon, but that was to be the only offensive touchdown of the night in a gruelling, defensive battle between the two team.

The 49ers had mustered only 168 yards of total offense up till the moment, with four minutes and 41 seconds to go in the game, Talanoa Hufanga scored their lone touchdown off a blocked punt from Jordan Willis, returning it six yards to tie the game up at 10-10. The 49ers had also earlier blocked a Mason Crosby 39-yard field goal attempt on the stroke of half time.

The San Francisco defense, who were superb throughout, sacking Rodgers five times – Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead with two each – then forced a quick three-and-out to follow, seeing the visitors get the ball back with three minutes and 20 still on the clock.

Jimmy Garoppolo picked up a couple of big completions to George Kittle and Deebo Samuel, before the latter then had a key nine-yard run on 3rd-and-7 that helped move the chains, run down the clock and set-up Gould’s game-winning kick.

Robbie Gould kicked a 45-yard game-winning field goal as time expired to see the San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers 13-10 at a snowy Lambeau Field and send them through to the NFC Championship game.
