Robbie Gould , kicking an extra point earlier in the game, hit the game - winning field goal as time expires to give the 49ers a 13- 10 win over the Packers . Getty Images. San Francisco tied the game with 4:41 left thanks to a breakdown by Green Bay’ s special teams , the Packers ’ biggest weakness all season. Jordan Willis’ outstretched left hand blocked a punt by Corey Bojorquez, who was kicking from the front of his end zone. Talanoa Hufanga picked up the ball at the 6-yard line and ran it in to make it 10 - 10 .

To cap off an embarrassing special teams effort, Green Bay sent 10 men out to attempt to block  Robbie Gould ' s 45-yard field goal attempt. They never had a chance. "That can't happen. The 49ers got there with two wins that came in drastically different fashions. They can award a game ball to their entire group of special teamers, who first kept them alive before propelling them to victory. LaFleur and the Packers , meanwhile, will have an entire offseason to remind themselves of the importance of special teams .

The San Francisco 49ers, who never led in their 13-10 shocking win until Robbie Gould’s 45-yard field goal as time expired, also didn’t score an offensive or defensive touchdown in the game. There were two Gould field goals, and a six-yard return of a blocked punt by safety Talanoa Hufanga, and that’s all the 49ers needed. Mason Crosby made one of his two field goal attempts; the other was blocked by safety Jimmie Ward.

And in perhaps the most embarrassing portion of this particular implosion, the Packers had just 10 men on the field for Gould’s game-winner — and this came after San Francisco’s third time out of the half with four seconds left, which allowed them to get their guys in place.

The good news for the Packers is that their own kicker, Mason Crosby , is a solid 30-for-33 on field goals in the postseason, and a perfect 69-for-69 on extra points in the postseason, which is the best mark in NFL history. Both teams can have confidence in their kickers tonight.

The Packers were also embarrassed by Deebo Samuel’s 45-yard kick return in which Samuel poleaxed cornerback Kevin King, but it wasn’t about any one play. The Packers came into this game knowing that their special teams were a potentially fatal flaw, and that’s exactly how it played out.
