SAN FRANCISO 49ERS @ ATLANTA FALCONS
This has all the makings of a terrific game. The top-seeded Falcons are looking to get to the Super Bowl for the first time since they lost to the Broncos in Super Bowl XXIII.
The 48ers are looking to complete its climb back to the top of the NFL under the guidance of young quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
The 49ers are rolling the dice that the moment will not be too big for their second-year signal caller.
It won’t be. Not by a long shot.
Kaepernick is big, he’s fast and he’s a big play waiting to happen. Plus, he also brings the element of rushing the ball. He piled up 181 yards on the ground in the NFL Divisional playoff win over the Packers. And all too frequently, he was outrunning Packers defenders for big gains.
