Dec 30, 2012 at 4:44 PM--


With the 27-13 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon, the San Francisco 49ers won their second straight NFC West title, securing at least one home game during the NFC playoffs.

However, they got a little more good news after the game when the Minnesota Vikings pulled off a 37-34 victory over the Green Bay Packers, sending the Vikings to the playoffs and elevating the 49ers to the #2 seed, giving them a bye week.

The 49ers will await the strongest winner of the wildcard round as the weakest winner will head to Atlanta to face the Falcons, who are the #1 seed in the NFC.

For those that followed the Vikings-Packers game, Adrian Peterson was 9 yards short of the all-time rushing record.
