In 15th year, Dawson finally gets his playoff win

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Phil Dawson walked off the field in triumph, his left hand still raised in the freezing air.

San Francisco's veteran kicker waited 15 years for his first playoff victory. And 11 years to return to the postseason after his lone previous trip after 2002 with Cleveland.

What a memorable day Dawson had Sunday, kicking the winning 33-yard field goal in the bitter cold as time expired at Green Bay, sending the 49ers (13-4) into the NFC divisional round this weekend at Carolina.

Dawson says it's been a long time coming, and he's enjoying playing for the 49ers.
