Sherman was influential from his corner position, as the 49ers beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-10 in the clash of Saturday's divisional round.

If the Seahawks defeat the Packers on an expected snow covered Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wishnowsky and Dickson will go head-to-head in next Sunday's NFC championship game at the 49ers' Levi's Stadium.

The Vikings only appeared competitive in the first quarter of Saturday's game, scoring a single touchdown to answer the 49ers' first.

The Packers host the Seahawks at 23:40 GMT on Sunday after the Chiefs play the Texans (20:05 GMT).

San Francisco split its games with NFC West rival Seattle.

The 49ers hope Kwon's return can give them a spark as they start their run to Miami and Super Bowl LIV. Seven of the Vikings' 11 offensive possessions ended without a first down.

Top Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was held to a mere 18 yards.

The proud San Francisco franchise had not been in the playoffs since the 2013 season.

Buoyed by that break, the 49ers advanced to the one-yard line, where running back Coleman skipped over for the go-ahead score at 14-7.

"We have some things to clear, but we played well enough to win and that's all you could ask for", 49ers tight end George Kittle said. "We are just going to keep playing good football I guess".

San Francisco doesn't know their opponent just yet.

The 49ers ran 186 yards - including 105 and two Tevin Coleman touchdowns - to control the game, and their defense overwhelmed Minnesota in every way.
