In the Week 17 finale, the San Francisco 49ers went on to win 23-20 in a close one over the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. 

After a first-quarter point explosion, the 49ers offense remained anemic as the Cardinals slowly caught up over the next few quarters. In the end, the Niners were able to maintain their lead and make just a few more plays than their opponent. 

After the back and forth in the body of the game, a big sideline catch by Quinton Patton over the defender set up Phil Dawson's 41-yard game-winner. San Francisco finishes at 12-4, now locked in to play the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card Round.
