07:57 AM ET 01.21 | After completing their comeback, the 49ers were left with a little more than eight minutes separating them from the Super Bowl. [The] 49ers finally got the go-ahead touchdown, with [Michael Crabtree's] eight-yard reception setting up a first-and-goal from the 9, and Gore taking a read-option handoff and sprinting untouched to the end zone with 8:23 remaining. [Matt Ryan] took over at his own 20 and drove the Falcons into the red zone, where the game would essentially be decided. On second-and-9 from the San Francisco 15, he threw a five-yard pass to running back Jason Snelling while absorbing a hard hit from linebacker Ahmad Brooks, resulting in a trip to the turf that would separate his left (non-throwing shoulder).

Brooks road him all the way to the ground..could have eased off a bit but he wanted to make it hurt.

At lest Matt went down scrapping. Good fame from both teams

Well, he's got the whole offseason to heal up.

And, he's got an excuse to duck out of the Pro Bowl.

Falcons still had a chance at the end and there were a few questionable none calls on both sides, but once again Falcons found a way to disappear in the 2nd half.

Gotta love the "completion" call when the ball bounced off the ground.

It was a cheap shot and he should have been penalized.

Good luck! No QB with a tattoo has ever won the Super Bowl! It's science...

Not enough evidence to overturn the call on the field, as they say.
