Who are San Francisco 49ers players watching tonight and cheering for? Below are some tweets from Niners leading up to and during the games, which are airing simultaneously on ESPN and ESPN2. A majority of players seem to have to have their eyes on Bryant's swan song in Los Angeles, but there are some going between the two games and keeping an eye on the Warriors.

Earlier this month, the 49ers Foundation hosted its annual season kickoff event Players for a Purpose on the field at Levi's Stadium, where the players and coaches came out to support the team as it aimed to raise money for the Bay Area communities. The event was successful, as the Foundation raised a total of $650,000, which is the largest amount ever in the event's four-year history. Well, where are these funds going? As in previous years, the funds raised will go towards the Foundation's mission to educate and empower Bay Area youth through collective and innovative community-focused strategies.

The San Francisco 49ers have a decision to make after this offseason. Guard Laken Tomlinson has been a solid part of the team's offensive line since a trade in 2017 sent him to the Bay Area from the Detroit Lions. Tomlinson is Pro Football Focus' third-highest graded (81.0) NFL guard this season. Only Michael Onwenu (82.6) of the New England Patriots and Joel Bitonio (84.8) of the Cleveland Browns grade higher. The 49ers guard has allowed just one pressure in 62 pass-blocking snaps.

Still, touchdowns in the NFL are tough to come by and the 49ers offense seized its opportunity for what could have been a play to remember for a long time. Rodgers led the Packers offense down the field on the ensuing drive, just far enough for Mason Crosby to connect on a game-winning field goal
