NFC Championship: 3 Reasons the San Francisco 49ers Lost Besides Kyle Williams

The New York Giants punched their ticket to Super Bowl XLVI with a 20-17 overtime win in San Francisco Sunday evening. Lawrence Tynes's game-winning field goal was set up in part by a fumbled punt return deep in 49ers territory.

Kyle Williams, who had already muffed a punt earlier in the game, was responsible for the fumble.

In the unfair field of football analysis and cooler talk, Williams will undoubtedly receive a large share of the blame for handing the Giants great field position in overtime.

Williams made two mistakes in the game, one more glaring than the other. But he is certainly not the sole reason the 49ers were sent packing and should not be handed the full brunt of responsibility.

This slideshow details other players and situations that helped the New York Giants move on.
