Domination: 49ers control NFC Championship

San Francisco 49ers win 37-20 over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game.

Well, State Farm is not winning the Super Bowl!

It was evident from the first half of this game that San Francisco was bringing their best game to the table. Their defense stopped the ball and offense obtained the necessary points. The 49ers' consistent go could not be handled by the Green Bay Packers, which lead to the 17 point loss at Levi's Stadium.


As much as people talked about him during the game, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is not the person to thank for this win. With only 8 pass attempts, 6 completed and a total of 77 pass yards, Jimmy G is en route to winning his third Super Bowl.


Two players the 49ers should really be thankful for tonight is Raheem Mostert and Nick Bosa. Mostert rushed 220 yards and completed four touchdowns. Meanwhile, Bosa kept Aaron Rodgers under pressure leading the Packers offense to do subpar work.



There was really no spark of a comeback for Green Bay. San Francisco came out strong and consistently scored each quarter. The Packers only converted points in the second half. This game wrapped up when 9ers' Richard Sherman intercepted the ball with a 1:48 left to play in the game.


It should be quite the offensive battle two weeks from today as San Francisco advances to play Kansas City in Miami for Super Bowl LIV. As they say, 'offense wins games, but defense wins championships.' Will the 49ers' defense stay this dominant on February 2nd?




Until then...

Just football, no shenanigans
