The San Francisco 49ers beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-10 in the Divisional Playoff on Saturday, to advance to the NFC Championship next weekend. Next week the 49ers will host the victor of Sunday's showdown between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship game. Despite a few conversions and a fumble recovery late in the fourth, the Vikings were unable to pull off the win at Levi's Stadium. The Vikings' offense produced just 147 yards with 41 coming off the Cousins-to-Diggs touchdown completion in the first quarter.

Garoppolo then marched the 49ers 61 yards upfield on a smooth, eight-play opening drive that culminated with the San Francisco quarterback picking out receiver Kendrick Bourne with a three-yard pass for a touchdown.

The right-hander played 164 Tests , scoring 13,288 at an average of 52.31 with 36 centuries and 63 half-centuries to his name. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) relived the batsman's 153-run knock against New Zealand in an ODI match.

Coleman had 22 carries for 105 yards and scored two touchdowns behind an offensive line that dominated the Vikings, leading to 38 minutes, 27 seconds of possession. Richard Sherman also had a big night on defense, creating problems for Cousins in the back field. It didn't matter that the Vikings were the team that ended the Saints' season - Thomas took open joy in watching them lose.

Wishful thinking from the station notwithstanding, the 49ers will indeed host the victor of Sunday night's game between the Seahawks and Packers in the NFC Championship Game next weekend.
