The NFC Championship — and its trophy — belongs to the San Francisco 49ers.

In the aftermath of the statement, 37-20 romp over the Packers at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday, the 49ers got to bask in the pomp and confetti, breathe in the cheers of a wild crowd that wants one more victory this season. Fox’s Terry Bradshaw handed the George Halas Trophy to Mike Shanahan, who tried to pass it off to Jed York. York wasn’t taking it.

“You give it to him,” York said to the elder Shanahan, who handed it to Kyle and the two shared a hug.

After the head coach’s moment, it was time for the players to get their moments on the podium. And just in case it wasn’t loud enough in Santa Clara, George Kittle and Jimmy Garoppolo did their best to fire up an already fired-up fanbase.

It’ll be 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs in Miami on Feb. 2 in Super Bowl LIV to decide who gets to lift the Lombardi Trophy.

 

Win!
