Niners kicker Robbie Gould capped off a nine-play, 44-yard drive with a game-winning 45-yard field. As Gould was celebrating on snowy Lambeau Field with teammates, he found quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Their embrace – and an expletive-laced message – was caught on camera.
“Man, that feels good!” Gould said as he was carrying the ball he kicked.
“You’re a f—ing legend man. F— the Packers!” Garoppolo replied.
WARNING EXPLETIVE LANGUAGE
San Francisco won the game 13-10. The 49ers similarly defeated Green Bay in the 2019 NFC Championship to get to the 2020 Super Bowl. On Saturday, Garoppolo finished 11-for-19 with 131 passing yards and an interception.
The lone 49ers touchdown came on a blocked punt that was recovered in the end zone. That play tied the game in the fourth quarter and Gould’s field goal won it.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers dropped to 0-4 in his playoff career against the 49ers. It was the second straight season the Packers held the NFC’s top seed but failed to reach the Super Bowl.
