SANTA CLARA, Calif. — From No. 2 pick in the draft to one of the last two teams standing.

It has been a remarkable turnaround for the Super Bowl-bound San Francisco 49ers.

Raheem Mostert rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns to make quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo mostly a spectator, Nick Bosa harassed Aaron Rodgers from the start and the 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers 37-20 for the NFC championship on Sunday.

The 49ers (15-3) advanced to their first Super Bowl in seven years and will play the Kansas City Chiefs in two weeks in Miami for the championship.

The Niners won just 10 games in the first two seasons under coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch, going 4-12 last season after Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 3.

Garoppolo: 49ers' running game 'made my life very easy'

  Garoppolo: 49ers' running game 'made my life very easy' The San Francisco 49ers advanced to Super Bowl LIV despite a quiet day from their starting quarterback. The Niners dominated the Green Bay Packers 37-20 in the NFC Championship Game on the strength of their run game and a stout defense. On offense, they ran the ball 42 times against just eight pass attempts from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. "You've got to talk to (head coach) Kyle (Shanahan) or something, man," Garoppolo said with a laugh when asked about his limited pass attempts."We were running the hell out of the ball tonight. It made my life very easy back there. I think I only had like eight pass attempts, so, it was a fun night.

Raheem Mostert had 220 rushing yards and four touchdowns as the San Francisco 49 ers beat the Green Bay Packers 37 - 20 in the NFC Championship game to reach Super Bowl LIV, where they Raheem Mostert 's huge day means the San Francisco 49 ers are heading to Super Bowl LIV in Miami.

And so, Mostert and the 49 ers , and their top-notch defense that is playing at an extremely high level

Now, San Francisco is one of two teams remaining after delivering a second thorough beating of the season to Rodgers and the Packers (14-4). The 49ers are the third team to make it to the Super Bowl a year after winning four or fewer games, joining Cincinnati (1988) and the Rams (1999).

Bosa, the prize for last year's rough season as the No. 2 overall pick, helped set the tone when he ended Green Bay's second drive of the game with a 13-yard sack of Rodgers.

Mostert, a former special teams standout, did much of the rest in a remarkable redemption story for a former surfer who was cut seven times and carried the ball only eight times in his first three seasons in the NFL.

But he has become a key part of the NFC's top team this year, leading the Niners with 772 yards rushing in the regular season and delivering a performance for the ages in the NFC title game.

He added TD runs of 9 and 18 yards in the second quarter and had 160 yards rushing at the half, becoming the only player in NFL history to rush for at least 150 yards and three TDs in the first half of a playoff game.

He lost a snap from centre to end Green Bay's only promising drive of the half, threw an interception to Emmanuel Moseley late in the half and didn't convert his first third down of the season against the Niners until connecting on a 6-yard pass to Aaron Jones on the opening drive of the second quarter for his first third-down conversion in 18 attempts this season against the Niners.

The Niners asked very little of Garoppolo, who threw only eight passes thanks to the big-play running game and lopsided score. He went 24 minutes of game time between his sixth and seventh passes and finished with six completions for 77 yards.

PASSING FAVRE

Rodgers' two TD passes gave him 40 in his playoff career, breaking Brett Favre's franchise record of 39. Rodgers also has seven straight playoff games with at least two TD throws, one shy of Joe Flacco's record.

INJURIES

Garoppolo got the ball back with 2:39 to go at the San Francisco 15 with the Niners four points down. A touchdown drive would surely have quelled the doubters who believe he is not a franchise quarterback.
