SANTA CLARA — The 49ers’ are one win away from the Super Bowl, and it’s not luck, magic, or whimsy that has them on the precipice.

No, it was grit. It was resolve. It was toughness.

Those things have shown up all season for this Niners’ team, but they came through in spades on Sunday in the biggest game of the season to date.

In both the physical and mental realms, the Niners tapped into their identity in the second half of their NFC Divisional Round matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.

The Niners were tougher, smarter, and better than Dallas in the final 30 minutes.

That’s why San Francisco won 19-12. That’s why they’ll play the Eagles Sunday in the NFC Championship Game in Philadelphia.
