The 49ers just took down the Saints and advanced to the NFC Championship Game with a downright insane 36-32 win in San Francisco.
There were four lead changes in the last four minutes, with the Niners and their much-maligned QB Alex Smith ultimately driving the length of the field with 90 seconds left to win it.
Here’s how it went down:
Down 24-23 with 2:20 left, the 49ers pulled out this insane bootleg to Smith. And the suddenly nimble QB took it to the house for a 28-yard TD.
Then, with the score 29-24, the Saints took the ball. Just 30 seconds later, Drew Brees connected with Jimmy Graham on a monster TD pass to make it 32-29.
Game over, right?
No. Smith drove the Niners down the field, then threw an absolute bullet to Vernon Davis for the game-winning touchdown with just a handful of ticks on the clock. San Fran wins 35-32, unbelievable stuff.
