Alex Mack Moves On To NFC Championship Game

Jan 23, 2022
Alex Mack and the 49ers will visit the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

Former Cal football player Alex Mack will attempt to reach the Super Bowl for the second time in his illustrious 13-year NFL career when his San Francisco 49ers visit the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in the NFC Championship Game next Sunday, Jan. 30 (3:30 pm PT).

Mack reached the NFC Championship Game when the 49ers knocked off No. 1 NFC seed Green Bay and fellow former Golden Bear Aaron Rodgers in a Divisional Round game of the NFC Playoffs at Lambeau Field on Saturday. The 49ers' Robby Gould made a game-winning 45-yard field goal on the final play of the contest in a 13-10 win as Mack started at center and played in all 54 offensive snaps. Rodgers completed 20-of-29 passes for 225 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.

Davis Webb was also affiliated with a Buffalo team that reached the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs but the Bills were defeated 42-36 at Kansas City on Sunday. Cal has no affiliates in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game that has Cincinnati visiting Kansas City (2 pm CT/Noon PT).

Mack played in his lone Super Bowl as a member of the 2016 Atlanta Falcons when they were defeated 34-28 in overtime by New England in Super Bowl LI.
