The NFL was accused of manipulating the postseason in favor of the San Francisco 49ers after their amazing victory over the Green Bay Packers 24-21 at Levi’s Stadium Saturday night.
The corridor Christian McCaffrey, once again, stood up for the Californian team by scoring two touchdowns, and his team came back after losing 14-21 for the rest of the quarter. Now they are just one game away from returning to the Super Bowl, and they wait to see who they are going to face in the NFC Championship Game.
Despite this, there are criticisms that the NFL favored the 49ers after a controversial refereeing call in the first half of the game against the Packers.
The quarterback team, Jordan Love, was in the red zone, and on fourth and one, the quarterback looked for a first and goal, but the referees declared the play short, resulting in the 49ers getting the ball back.
From that game, the 49ers They scored their first touchdown of the game to make the score 7-3 from a position where they could have been outscored 10-0 by the visiting team, infuriating the fans.
A user wrote in X: “It’s official that the NFL is rigged.”.
The second agreed and wrote, “The NFL is the most manipulated sports propaganda of all time.”.
A third shared the sentiment, saying, “The rigged NFL wanted the 49ers to win this game by any means necessary from the start.”.
The good times in sport
Although they are the first seed in the NFC, the 49ers were on the ropes for most of the game against a team that should be taken seriously after crushing the Dallas Cowboys in the previous round.
And, as many sports figures will tell you, contests can be boiled down to short moments instead of big stories and plays. This is exactly what happened in the Bay Area last Saturday night.
While Green Bay was leading 21-17, Anders Carslon missed a field goal attempt, which would have extended his lead to seven points. That missed kick was all 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy needed to control.
With great skill and control of his offense, Purdy drove the 49ers down the field one game at a time, putting McCaffrey in reach for a rushing touchdown that was the game-winning score that saw the Californians advance, and the Wisconsin team left to dream of what the dos and don’ts were.
