Every Picture Tells a Story – 49ers win in the Snow in frigid Green Bay Wisconsin.
San Francisco 49ers’ Robbie Gould celebrates after making the 45 yard game-winning field goal as time runs out.
Like an 11th-hour stay-of-execution phone call from the governor, Jimmy Garoppolo marched the 49ers to a game-winning 45-yard field goal as time expired for a shocking 13-10 victory over the mighty Packers. – Scott Ostler, San Francisco Chronicle.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Robbie Gould’s kick sailed through the uprights and as his San Francisco teammates, bundled in red parkas, scampered onto the grass Saturday night, the Green Bay Packers just stood on their sideline. They had not lost all season at Lambeau Field, not in warm weather or temperate conditions or the winter chill, but a certain finality had now descended amid the snowfall.
The 49ers ousted the top-seeded Packers from the playoffs, 13-10, on Gould’s 45-yard field goal as time expired. San Francisco, the sixth seed, advances to play at either the Los Angeles Rams or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in next Sunday’s N.F.C. championship game.
