ESPN Video: The 49ers beat the Cardinals 23-20 to clinch the No. 5 seed in the NFC playoffs.
The Cardinals needed a win and some help to get into the playoffs. They got neither, though it won't diminish what they were able to accomplish in one season under new coach Bruce Arians.
Phil Dawson's franchise-record string of 27 consecutive field goals ended with a missed 24-yard chip shot. The San Francisco kicker made up for it, to say the least, at the end of a wild 23-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday that clinched the NFC's No. 5 playoff seed.
This is what happens, even after a 10-6 season and a finale that goes down to the final play of the game and an exciting trading of four scores in the last 3:30 of the fourth quarter. All of it seems so inconsequential, because immediately, your thoughts go to the future.
