San Francisco overcame a 17-point deficit early in the third quarter to win 34-31 against Detroit and seal its ticket to Super Bowl LVIII.
The Gambusinos were challenged more than expected by the Lions, who surprised and left a good impression but whose poor decisions and mistakes on the field turned into regrets.
The first half was completely dominated by Detroit when they arrived at halftime with a 24-7 lead. His first two scores came on touchdown runs, the first on a 42-yard run by Jameson Williams and another seven by David Montgomery.
San Francisco answered with Christian McCaffrey’s two-yard run, but the Lions responded with their third carry that ended in the end zone on a Jahmyr Gibbs play. Michael Badgley ended the game with a 21-yard field goal.
In the second half, the 49ers quickly got within themselves with Jake Moody’s field goal after he missed a first down. San Francisco added 14 points from a Brock Purdy pass to Brandon Aiyuk and McCaffrey’s second carry to tie the score at 24 points.
Moody himself contributed his second field goal to give the Gambusinos their first lead of the entire game. With three minutes left in the game, Elijah Mitchell added seven points with a three-yard run to secure the victory, the National Conference title, and most of all, the ticket to the Super Bowl, with all the Lions in an hour. annotation.
