Christian McCaffrey late show sees San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers again

The San Francisco 49ers have now beaten the Green Bay Packers in five straight playoff meetings after a late Christian McCaffrey touchdown gave them a 24-21 win.

The 49ers, the number one seeds in the NFC, had trailed 21-14 heading into the fourth quarter.

Jake Moody cut the gap with a 52-yard field goal before McCaffrey crashed his way over from six yards with 67 seconds on the clock.

Brock Purdy’s 32-yard touchdown pass to George Kittle had given the 49ers a 7-6 interval lead, the Packers responding after the break as Jordan Love threw touchdown passes to Bo Melton and Tucker Kraft either side of McCaffrey’s first score of the night.

The 49ers had not come from behind to win throughout the regular season, but Purdy drove them into position for the decisive score after rookie Anders Carlson had missed a field goal from 41 yards for Green Bay.

In the AFC, the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens saw off the Houston Texans 34-10.

The 49ers will entertain the Detroit Lions or Tampa Bay Buccaneers to decide the NFC champions.
