Top-Seed 49ers Roll Over Vikings

Jonathan Grant | January 12th, 2020

As is so often the case, like with the Ravens and Titans on Saturday night, the team getting coming off a bye is not always in the driver’s seat like you would expect. The San Francisco 49ers, however, certainly proved that they were well in control on Saturday afternoon as they handled the Minnesota Vikings rather easily in a 27-10 win.

In doing so, they will now host the NFC Championship game, with either division rivals Seattle or Green Bay coming to town. Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t finish with the biggest numbers of all time, but what he did do was start his playoff career off with a bang, leading the team to a touchdown drive to start the game out. From there, it was Tevin Coleman who ate up 105 yards on the ground and their defense that took charge. Stefon Diggs ran in for a TD in the first quarter, but after that, no more Vikings made their way into the end zone. In the second half, the 49ers scored 13 unanswered points to pull away and continue their march toward a potential Super Bowl berth.
