What playoff nerves?

Most of the 49ers' core hasn't played in a playoff game before Saturday, but that didn't stop them from getting off to a fast start.

After forcing a three-and-out to open the game, Jimmy Garoppolo quickly drove the 49ers 61 yards in eight plays, capping it off with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Kendrick Bourne.

Garoppolo went 5-of-6 for 57 yards on the drive, including this dime to Emmanuel Sanders.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan spent the drive picking on cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who has been one of the worst cornerbacks in football this season.

A win Saturday will send the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game against the winner of the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers.
