While the AFC Championship game did stay fairly close for a while, the same cannot be said of the NFC Championship game on Sunday night-ish. The San Francisco 49ers had beaten the Green Bay Packers to a pulp in the regular season- doing so by a score of 37-8. They didn’t win by the same margin this time around, but they looked like they could have in the early stretches.
Ultimately they won 37-20, easing their way to the Super Bowl in the process. The man that was responsible, in large part, for leading the charge was running back Raheem Mostert. He was a monster on the night, rushing the ball 29 times for 220 yards and four touchdowns. Three of those came before half time as the 49ers took a 27-0 lead into the interval and had all but killed the game off. Aaron Rodgers threw touchdown passes in the second half, and he totaled 326 yards through the air, but it wasn’t nearly close enough to being what they needed to get back into it. The 49ers will travel to Miami now to face the Chiefs in what should be quite an interesting Super Bowl.
