Eminem had an aggressive message for 49ers fans on Sunday as he cheered on the Lions, but the home fans would be the ones cheering by the end as San Francisco pulled off a comeback win to advance to the Super Bowl.

The rapper, who grew up near Detroit, was in attendance at Levi’s Stadium as his team looked to make its first Super Bowl in franchise history.

And he was caught giving a double middle finger to San Francisco supporters from his suite.

The Lions started the game on the front foot, racing out to a 24-7 halftime lead, but fell apart in the second half as the 49ers won 34-31.

Before the game, ‘Slim Shady’ had jokingly appealed to Detroit head coach Dan Campbell to put him in the game.

He wore a Lions T-shirt and hat to the game on Sunday. 

‘Yo Dan, I’m reporting, I’m gonna report [in the] third quarter. I’m reporting, offensive line, eligible receiver, I’ll be the quarterback, the entire offensive line and the receiver, and I will throw it to myself and I will score a touchdown in the third quarter,’ he said in an Instagram video, as relayed by the New York Post.

‘Just give me a uniform, or at just least like a helmet. I already have a helmet, it’s not the one for football. It’s just a helmet. But yeah man, I’m here, bro. I’m gonna be there, I’m gonna be there that night, I will suit up and I will score us the winning touchdown.’

Brock Purdy threw for 267 yards and a touchdown as the 49ers rallied from 17 points down at halftime.

The 49ers (14-5) scored 17 points in an eight-minute span of the third quarter to tie the NFC championship game and then pulled away in the fourth quarter to earn a rematch against Kansas City after losing to the Chiefs in the Super Bowl four years ago.

‘We played as bad of a first half as we could, but we were still within 17. There´s plenty of points there you can make up,’ Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said. 

‘The D shut them out there in the second half and this dude right next to me (Purdy) made it happen.’

San Francisco mounted the fourth comeback ever from 17 points down or more in a conference title game thanks to some big plays by Purdy and bad mistakes from the Lions (14-6), including two failed fourth downs in field-goal range.
