Now we go on to crown the NFC Conference champion. The contestants for this title are the (13-3) San Francisco 49ers and the (13-3) Green Bay Packers. Both of these teams had a first round bye and knocked off their Wild Card opponents in the Divisional round. Now these two teams with identical records will square off to determine who will represent the NFC in this seasons Super Bowl.
Unlike the previous game this one did not start with a lot of scoring. The only points of the 1st quarter came from 49ers running-back Raheem Mosert. Mosert would convert on a 3rd and 8 and take the ball 36-yards for the opening touchdown of the game and the 7-0 49ers lead at the end of the quarter. San Francsico would go on a roll in the 2nd quarter. First was a field goal by Robbie Gould from 54-yards out making it 10-0. Then Mosert would return to the endzone with a 9-yard touchdown making it 17-0. Gould would then make it 20-0 off a 27-yard field goal. Finally to finish the half off Mosert would take the ball 18-yards for his 3rd touchdown making the score 27-0 at the half.
Green Bay would finally show signs of life to begin the 3rd quarter as they’d score a touchdown on their opening drive. Aaron Rodgers would find Aaron Jones for a 9-yard touchdown, putting the Packers on the Board at 27-7. This was quickly answered by the 49ers though as Mosert was proving to be unstoppable. For his 4th touchdown of the game he’d run 22-yards to make it 34-7. That would end the 3rd quarter, but Green Bay would score a touchdown on their 2nd play of the 4th. Jones would score on the ground this time for a 1-yard rushing touchdown, however a failed 2-point convert would keep the score 34-13. Not for very long though as the Packers would get another touchdown. The recipient of this 8-yard pass was Jace Sternberger making this a 34-20 game. The 49ers would put the game away after Gould hit a 42-yard field goal making the final score 37-20 San Francisco.
With that win we have our Super Bowl line-up set in stone. The Championship game will feature the San Francisco 49ers against the Kansas City Chiefs. Tune in on February 2nd to find out which of these two teams will walk away a Super Bowl Champion!
