Which of the last two 49ers games was a better story?

I've been thinking about this since the game, both of them were great stories. The 2009 game was one of the greatest last-second drives I have ever seen in my life. Also, it was the game that really set the tone for the rest of the season. After that game you knew that, if Brett was at the helm, you were almost never out of any game. Add to that the fact that Greg Lewis, of all people, made the great play to catch the ball at the very back of the endzone and stay in bounds. It was one of the most exciting moments in an extremely exciting season.

Then there was last weekend's game. We came in as the extreme underdog. No one gave us a chance; hell, most of us fans didn't even give the Vikes much of a chance. That is why no one expected the outcome. We dominated the 49ers; the Vikings had control pretty much the entire game. That is not the best part of the win however, the best part is that we beat them playing "49er football" (physical football that uses the run to open up play-action on offense; on defense, stop the run and force the opposing team into a one-dimensional game). Yes, the team ranked (at best) in the high 20s of most power rankings who barely beat the Jags and lost to the Colts, beat the team who was ranked #1 for most people and who made beating the Packers and the Lions look easy, and we did it by beating them at their own game.

Personally I find myself leaning a little towards last weekend's game, but that could be just because of the newness of it. Which of these wins over the 49ers do you think is the better story?
