Winner: Tight End George Kittle
The Saints didn’t get the memo about covering George Kittle in the crucial game-deciding situations late, and Kittle’s 39-yard catch-and-run scamper — aided by a defensive facemask call against New Orleans — helped set up the 49ers’ game-winning field goal:
Kittle even managed to pick up more yards after the facemask, dragging multiple Saints defenders along with him.
But Kittle being on the list of winners here goes beyond just this crucial play.
With his 67 receiving yards in the game, Kittle now has 2,646 receiving yards in his career, which places him fourth on the all-time list for tight ends in their first three years within the league, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
The other three? Mike Ditka, Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham.
