49ers' dominant win over Vikings gets meme'd by NFL fans
For San Francisco 49ers fans, the day was six seasons in the making — and it did not disappoint.
In the team's first playoff appearance since 2013, the Niners dominated the Vikings throughout their 27-10 victory at Levi's Stadium.
The defense was near-impenetrable, giving up only 21 yards rushing on the day.
“That was the No. 1 emphasis all week,” rookie defensive lineman Nick Bosa said. “We knew we were facing probably the best back we've faced all year with Dalvin [Cook], and we knew we had to earn the right to pass rush. So, that's what we did. We took the run as serious as we could, shut it down and then we ate.”
San Francisco had six sacks, two of which came from Bosa.
The 49ers now wait to see who they will face in the NFC Championship. They'll play either Green Bay or Seattle, pending the outcome of Sunday's game.
