The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Green Bay Packers in sub-zero temperatures off a game-winning Robbie Gould 45-yard field goal that put them ahead 13-10 as time expired. In a hard-fought, gutsy, come-from-behind performance, Jimmy Garoppolo showed up when it mattered, with significant help from special teams and a masterful defensive performance, to put away the #1 seed in the NFC. "It took everything," Garoppolo told FOX Sports' Tom Rinaldi after the game. "We knew it was going to. I mean, just offense, defense, special teams, everybody stepping up, doing their part. I wouldn't have it any other way." As they've done on so many occasions in the Jimmy Garoppolo era, the 49ers compiled a game-winning drive after the defense stopped the Packers

Few expected San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to start the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams this past weekend. Reports gave the impression that he wouldn't be able to properly grip the football, much less throw it downfield to his receivers. Ian Rapoport reported that Garoppolo is expected to have offseason surgery. Head coach Kyle Shanahan acknowledged that as a possibility. The quarterback has a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. Still, Garoppolo delivered a gutsy performance, fought through the pain, and led his 49ers to a thrilling 27-24 overtime win at SoFi Stadium. It wasn't until the Tuesday

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is becoming one of the NFL's biggest stars. He racked up 1,770 all-purpose yards this season and 15 total touchdowns (6 receiving, 8 rushing, 1 passing). Samuel has frustrated opposing defenses as a receiver, as a rusher, and even tossed a touchdown pass this past weekend against the Los Angeles Rams. Samuel is in his third NFL season, which means it's time to start thinking about a contract extension for the 25-year-old star. He's positioned himself to be among the highest-paid players at his position. However, Samuel is unique in that he does so much more than just playing wide receiver. "Deebo's going to be well compensated, and we plan on him being a Niner for a long time," general manager John Lynch said

Trey Lance has primarily spent his first NFL season as a student, learning the game. He's had two starts in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo but has spent most game days on the sideline as an observer. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has benefited from watching Lance in practices all season and witnessing his development. On Friday morning, Lynch joined 95.7 The Game and was asked how he would evaluate the rookie's first season. "I think it's been awesome," Lynch responded. "And a lot of people, I'm sure, are like, 'Man, this guy's crazy. What do you mean? He hasn't played that much.' But we had a plan for Trey, and I think the plan was to take it week by week. And we just wanted to see constant growth and development. "The thing
