49ers after making a big play

Green Bay had big expectations coming into this game after winning against the Seattle Seahawks. However, those expectations were crushed as the 49ers throttled to a 37-20 victory. 

 

San Francisco might have only won by 17, which is still a lot, but it seemed like a lot more than that. The 49ers opened with a rushing touchdown by Raheem Mostert. From that point on it went downhill for the Packers. In the first half, the 49ers ended with scoring 27 unanswered points, which ended the half, 27-0. 

 

The 49ers ended up taking the foot off the throttle in the second half. The Packers added all 20 of their points in the second half, and the 49ers added another 10 to their score. 

 

Raheem Mostert had a big game for the 49ers. Mostert ended the game with 220 yards on the ground, with all four of their touchdowns. Jimmy Garoppolo only threw the ball 8 times in their win. 

 

On the other side of the game, Aaron Rodgers didn’t play his worst game by any means, but this definitely wasn’t his best game. Rodgers threw 31-39 for 296 yards with two touchdowns. Despite Rodgers’ best efforts, he was still sacked three times and threw two interceptions.This really hurt the Packers in this game. 

 

The 49ers will take on the Kansas City Chiefs led by Patrick Mahomes in Super Bowl 54.
