Just as time ran out, Phil Dawson kicked a 33-yard field goal in the wildcard game.

In addition, Colin Kaepernick threw for 227 yards and ran for another 9.

That lead him to lead the San Francisco 49ers past the Green Bay Packers 23-20. It all happened on Sunday night in a frigid NFC wild-card game.

"The weather looked terrible, it must have been a lot harder to play in that kind of weather," says San Francisco resident, Katie Adler. described the excitement thus:

"In a back-and-forth fourth quarter, the 49ers (13-4) threw the final punch. Kaepernick escaped a blitz on third-and-8 and scrambled for an 11-yard gain to the 27 with 1:13 left. Dawson nailed the winning kick five plays later."

"Meat locker" is the description used to talk about the win in the horrible weather conditions

"The defending NFC champions came away with a huge win in conditions that resembled a meat locker. It was 5 degrees at kickoff, and the winds made it feel like minus-10."
