            Eight straight runs in one possession, and it results in a TD.
            The Vikings came in having fought for their lives less than a week ago, and got trampled.

                            As a long time Pats and Vikings Fan, I found it very difficult to root
                            against Jimmy G and the 49ers. Since Jimmy G did so well as a backup for New England, we all knew that he could do well, but never got that chance with our Patriots. I for one will be rooting for the San Francisco 49ers against the Green Bay Packers. Go 49ers!

                            Vikings fan, 9ers defensive front is insane. They bullied our O-line just rushing 4 every down, it really was a massacre up front. I’m excited to see who they play in the super bowl

                              This defense is the best I’ve seen all year when healthy 5 First round picks Solid 🔥💪🏾

                                Yeah the 49ers had a 12 day rest with some players coming back from injuries and the vikes had a short week!! They won't go to the super bowl though!!! Titans....all the way

                                  Not that it mattered, but the Vikings were the only team that played 5 days later not 6 FYI.

                                                    The 49ers got a good schedule. First, they got to play the Seahwaks after the Hawks had a short week. Then Minnesota had a short week to prep for the Niners...,and now the winner of the Seahawks/Green bay game will have to play the Niners on a short week too.
                                                    Someone is looking out for the niners. I knew the niners would beat the viks.

                                                      I predicted them to beat the Seahawks in week 17 of the regular season. And I knew that they would beat Viks too.

                                                            49ers ran the football 47 times and threw only 19 passes. No better way to attack a tired defense than running the ball, specially when you have a 3 headed monster and that's the weakness of the defense. Take their pass rushers out of the game, by not passing at all.

                                                                              Time stamp this

Dominate the pass rush, and run the football down the opponent’s throats which makes a good OL even more effective. Kyle ran Mike’s offensive game plan to perfection. I don’t see anyone stopping the Niners from the Super Bowl if they stay healthy. Kyle has more talent available to him than Mike did. John Elway was a great QB but during those two championship years, he was a game manager, not the difference maker he was earlier in his career. Yesterday was a Shanahan kind of game.
