First off thank you Minnesota Vikings. They got the 49ers the No.2 seed and a playoff bye. The Vikings needed to win to make playoffs but more importantly that win gave the 49ers a much needed bye.
Now onto the 49ers game. The 49ers needed the win over the Cardinals to win the West and it started off slow, but they got clicking on all sides of the ball and beat the Cardinals 27-13.
Michael Crabtree finished the day with 8 receptions for 172 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Michael Crabtree passed the 1000 yard receiving mark, the first since Terrell Owens.
Michael Crabtree going 150+ and 2 touchdowns was the most since Terrell Owens did it back in 2002.
Alex Smith finished out the game and was 1 for 1 on the day and with that we may have seen our last play from Alex in 49ers colors.
Aldon Smith did not get a sack, he finished the season with 19.5. One shy of the league leading total by JJ Watt (20.5) and 3.5 shy of Strahan’s record.
Frank Gore has a rushing touchdown which gave him 51 on his career, which is a new 49ers rushing record.
Did I mention how much I love the Minnesota Vikings. That bye will be good to get people healthy, but more importantly getting Justin Smith back on the field.
