The San Francisco 49ers played a pretty srong all-around game on the ground game and on defense. They got great special teams plays from their punter and their kicker. There's a very good chance they'd still be playing (or already be booking their tickets for Indianapolis) if their punt returner could have held onto the football.
Kyle Williams had his second fumble of the game midway through overtime when he was stripped of the football, and Devin Thomas recovered the ball at the San Francisco 24. A few Ahmad Bradshaw rushes set up a Lawrence Tynes 31 yard field goal.
