San Francisco 48 – Detroit 20

The Detroit Lions’ improbable “Cinderella” run came to an end at the hands of Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers 48-20.  But, for a while, the Lions hung in there!  Late in the first half, Detroit kicker Matt Prated nailed a 47 yard field goal to cut San Fran’s lead to only 21-17.

But, after that, it was all Niners . . . . as they scored four more touchdowns and held the Lions to one field goal the rest of the way.

Garoppolo had a very good game, hitting on 22 passes to nine different receivers for 265 yards and four TD’s.  George Kittle hauled in two of those scoring passes, and running-back Tevin Coleman added 2 on the ground as San Francisco completed their rout.

The 49ers will now host the Philadelphia Eagles in an NFC semi-final contest.
