SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco 49ers, the NFC’s top seeded team, took care of business at home and defeated the Minnesota Vikings 27-10.
How will this game impact the Green Bay Packers?
The NFC title game will be hosted by San Francisco. The winner of Packers vs. Seahawks will have the tough challenge of defeating perhaps the best running and defensive team in the NFL next weekend.
The Vikings came off their most impressive win of the season, taking out Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints on the road in overtime. Minnesota’s pass rush dominated the last several weeks of the season, as has Running Back Dalvin Cook. However, it wasn’t enough Saturday afternoon.
