Robbie Gould kicks the 49ers into the NFC Championship vs Packers (Video)

Robbie Gould was 19-for-19 in making postseason field goals. He’s as clutch as it comes.

But on Saturday night, in the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, and with three seconds left, he needed to make a 45-yard field goal that probably felt like kicking a brick.

Luckily for the San Francisco 49ers, Gould wasn’t phased.

Robbie Gould is 20-for-20. And the 49ers eliminate the other number one seed in the playoffs; the Green Bay Packers.

The 49ers now await the winner of the Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in which, they will face them in the NFC Championship.
