Gardner-Johnson's parting wave ages horribly as 49ers win.

C.J. Gardner-Johnson, a safety for the Detroit Lions, definitely learned that lesson the hard way on Sunday

when the 49ers pulled off a comeback victory in the National Football Conference Championship Game at Levi's Stadium by scoring 27 points without a single response.

Gardner-Johnson celebrated after the Lions went up 21-7 in the second quarter by waving farewell to the 49ers Faithful

 This was before things began to go in a negative direction for Detroit.

Brock Purdy and the 49ers recovered at halftime and roared back to escape losing their third consecutive NFC title game and proceed to Super Bowl LVIII, sending Detroit packing

This prevented the Lions from completing their Cinderella narrative, which would have been a wonderful finale to their journey.

The ultimate comeback victory for San Francisco, which was winning by 17 points, is tied for the biggest comeback in the history of the NFC Championship.

At the conclusion of the victory, it is possible that Gardner-Johnson was given some farewell waves from the faithful as he was leaving the stadium.
