The San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers on a walk-off, 33-yard field goal by Phil Dawson to advance deeper into the NFL playoffs. 

However, the Packers' Davon House nearly came up with a block on the kick. Dawson's kick went right through House's arms and snuck inside the right upright. Green Bay fans are probably sick after seeing just how close House came to blocking the kick.

It wouldn't have mattered if he had blocked it, though. House was flagged for being offside on the play, so it would have been wiped out had he come up with the block. Dawson would have received another chance from 28 yards out, so it's likely that the 49ers still would have won the game.

Despite the flag, it's still crazy to see a game-winning kick go right through a defender's arms.
