San Francisco is Super Bowl-bound
The game effectively ended with just under two minutes left, when 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman picked off Aaron Rodgers on a deep throw. San Francisco was able to kneel out the clock and make plans for the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs. The 49ers become just the third team to make the Super Bowl following a season with at least 12 losses, following the 1988 Cincinnati Bengals and the 1999 St. Louis Rams. (49ers 37 -Packers 20 )
