- Late field-goal seals 48-46 victory for San Francisco
- Ravens clinch playoff place with win over Bills
- Falcons’ Matt Ryan reaches 50,000 career passing yards
Jimmy Garoppolo passed for 349 yards and four touchdowns, Robbie Gould kicked a 30-yard field goal as time expired, and the San Francisco 49ers pulled out a 48-46 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Garoppolo’s clutch completion to tight end George Kittle for a 39-yard gain plus a defensive facemask penalty on fourth-and-two from the San Francisco 33 helped set up Gould’s winning kick. The Saints took their last lead on Drew Brees’ fifth touchdown pass of the game an 18-yarder to Tre’Quan Smith with 53 seconds left. But Brees’ pass on an attempted two-point conversion fell incomplete, leaving New Orleans’ lead at one point. The victory kept San Francisco (11-2) in strong position to capture the top seed in the NFC playoffs.
