Sternberger’s catch and the extra point cut San Francisco’s lead in the NFC Championship Game to 34-20, but it might be too little too late for the Packers. The 49ers have managed to take significant time off the clock after the Sternberger touchdown.
Sternberger was activated from injured reserve in November. He appeared in six regular-season games, making one start. After a decorated Aggies career, the Packers drafted Sternberger with the No. 75 overall pick in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
