The "Hot Boyzz" were in full effect Saturday.

The 49ers shut down the Vikings en route to a 27-10 divisional-round victory at Levi's Stadium, as Minnesota managed just 147 total yards, the fewest San Francisco has ever allowed in a playoff game.

It also was a record-setting day for the Vikings' offense, although not in a good way.

Ouch.

In addition to holding Minnesota under 150 total yards, the 49ers limited the Vikings to just seven first downs as Dalvin Cook, Kirk Cousins and the rest of the offense just couldn't get anything going past San Francisco's overpowering front seven.

Rookie Nick Bosa picked up two sacks as he manhandled the Vikings' offensive line.
