NaVorro Bowman's 89-yard interception return seals 49ers win

By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com

Moments after NaVorro Bowman misplayed an onside kick that gave the Falcons the ball late in the game with a chance to win, the 49ers linebacker made what coach Jim Harbaugh called "one of the greatest plays I've ever seen."

Eighty-nine yards later, Bowman was in the end zone to give the 49ers a 34-24 lead. More importantly, 64 seconds after that, San Francisco had won their 11th game of the season and clinched their third straight postseason berth.

And the NFC West title is still up for grabs, too; a 49ers win in Week 17 (they're at Arizona) coupled with a Seahawks loss (they host St. Louis) would do it.
