On three possessions they were stopped on downs inside the 10.

Wilson gained 110 yards on 21 carries, his third career 100-yard game, and Samuel ran 29 yards on six carries and caught four passes for 60 yards.

Jimmy Garoppolo was 18-of-23 for 235 yards and a touchdown. George Kittle caught six passes for 93 yards.

Matt Ryan was 19-of-32 for 236 yards and a touchdown. The 49ers sacked him three times.

  1. Niners simply outclassed my Falcons today. We need a real pass rush for next season. Good game SF, sick it to ‘em in the playoffs.
