The San Francisco 49ers were lucky to get a win over the Green Bay Packers in their wild card playoff game on Sunday.
FOX replays showed that Green Bay came incredibly close to blocking Phil Dawson’s 33-yard field goal to win the game 23-20.
That was Davon House who nearly blocked the kick. House was actually flagged for being offsides on the play, but the penalty was declined. That’s what the explanation from the referees at the end of the game was all about.
Here’s a look at the kick by Dawson and how close House was to blocking it:
Had the kick been blocked, the 49ers would have accepted the penalty and had another chance to kick, but it’s still crazy how close we were to having a controversial ending.
