SANTA CLARA, Calif. (KGO) -- The San Francisco 49ers are headed to the Super Bowl after defeating Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.

The final score was 37-20. The team will face the Kansas City Chiefs in Miami on Feb. 2 for the Championship title.

Today, 49ers were first to score with a 35-yard touchdown from Raheem Mostert. It would be the first of many, very many.

In the third quarter, Mostert scored again, his fourth of the day, to make it 34-7.

His performance is setting new franchise and NFL league records.

The Niners continued feeding off of the energy from the crowd at Levi's Stadium.

"Just seeing a bunch of people that you would never expect to be a 49ers fan and they are just here because the brand is so global. It's really cool. It's really cool to be a part of," Nick Bosa, 49ers defensive end said.

Adding to the high-energy is the presence of Bay Area and San Francisco legends like Barry Bonds and Steve Young.

Warriors' Klay Thompson and San Jose Sharks players are also in attendance.
