Following the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles, eighth-year defensive lineman Arik Armstead sealed his name in San Francisco 49ers record books.
Armstead brought down Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts for a sack, marking his second this postseason and the seventh of his playoff career. Armstead's first sack of this year's playoff run was recorded in the Wild Card Round against Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith.
His 7.0 sacks in the postseason are the third most in franchise history, surpassing LB Ahmad Brooks (6.5), LB Tim Harris (6.5) and DL Dwaine Board (6.5).
