The 49ers certainly were excited about getting their first win.

The 49ers celebrated winning the Toilet Bowl as if they won the Super Bowl.

Minutes after the 1-9 49ers beat the 1-8 Giants, Niners players took to the locker room to celebrate. Festivities included screaming in jubilation, jumping around in a mosh pit and even being doused in a Gatorade shower.

Based on the video posted by the team's Twitter account, onlookers would have assumed the 49ers had just clinched the NFC West rather than clinch their first win of the season (over a team that only has one win themselves).

While the 49ers may not have much to celebrate in terms of their record and short-term future, the win was a monumental one for the franchise, as it was the team's first victory since Dec. 24, 2016.
