The Niners ousted the Minnesota Vikings, 27-10, in a Divisional round game.
For the victor, the loot goes and the Tennessee Titans enjoyed their upset victory over the Baltimore Ravens and did some trolling with their opponent's favorite slogan.
The San Francisco 49ers are officially back. It's not a hiring that impresses the man who is partially responsible for why the former Vikings offensive coordinator is available, 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman. Minnesota had 147 yards of total offense and just seven first downs.
The 49ers' offensive line also was effective, controlling the game up front.
"Those guys did very well, they turned the guys back so I could have clear holes to finish them", Coleman, who scored on one-and-two-yard runs and ran for 105 yards, told reporters.
The replay booth came to San Francisco's rescue, however, correctly spotting that Samuel had a knee down before the fumble occurred.
"We've got some things to clean up, but we played well enough to win and that's all you can ask for", said 49ers tight end George Kittle. "We are just going to keep playing good football I guess". Jackson went two of eight for 17 yards and an interception in the first half against the Chargers, and the Ravens fell behind 23-3 in a one-and-out playoff performance.
But then the New Orleans Saints, a unsafe opponent with a quarterback who won the Super Bowl, was beaten by Minnesota, a six, who only had five days to prepare for this game, and it was a mismatch.
Gould added his second field goal from 21 yards to make it 27-10 and complete the scoring at the start of the fourth quarter.
