NFC Championship Preview: 49ers vs. Falcons

The San Francisco 49ers (12-4-1) will take on the Atlanta Falcons (14-3) at the Georgia Dome this Sunday, January 20th in the NFC Championship game. The 49ers are coming off a decisive 45-31 victory over the Packers, while the Falcons barely edged out the Seahawks last Sunday in a nail-biting 30-28 finish. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 17 of 31 attempted passes and threw for 263 yards, including two touchdowns in last Sunday's game. Kaepernick also threw one interception in that game, which was returned 52 yards for a touchdown. However, despite the interception, the San Francisco offense racked up a total of 579 yards in their game against Green Bay, setting a 49ers postseason franchise record. That's especially impressive considering that next week's game will be the 49ers 14th appearance at an NFC Championship game. However, the Falcons have only met the 49ers in the postseason once before, when they beat San Francisco 20-18 in the 1998 divisional playoffs. Their last regular season matchup was in 2010 at the Georgia Dome, where the Falcons beat the 49ers 16-14. Looking for those elusive NFC Championship Game tickets?

Kaepernick, known as quick and versatile quarterback who's not afraid to run the ball, has often been compared to Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. In last week's game against the Packers, Kaepernick set a quarterback playoff rushing record when he ran for 181 yards. It should be interesting to see what lessons Falcons QB Matt Ryan may have learned from his matchup against Wilson last week that he can apply to his upcoming game against Kaepernick and the 49ers. If San Francisco takes the NFC Championship, it will be their sixth Super Bowl appearance and possibly their sixth win.
