QB Jimmy Garoppolo: His first career playoff start began with a touchdown drive, and it came on the 49ers’ first postseason possession since Colin Kaepernick’s end-zone interception in the 2013 NFC Championship Game loss at Seattle. Garoppolo was 5-of-6 for 57 yards, the lone incompletion slipping off George Kittle’s outstretched hands. Kendrick Bourne’s 3-yard touchdown catch over the middle came with cornerback Xavier Rhodes trailing in coverage and Garoppolo dropping the ball over safety Anthony Harris.
