If the Colin Kapernick, Frank Gore and the San Francisco 49ers are looking for a winning blueprint for Saturday’s NFC Divisional showdown with the Green Bay Packers, they need to look no further than the game tape from the regular season opener. In what was dubbed as a potential ‘NFC Championship preview’, the Niners made a statement with a convincing 30-22 road win over the Packers and their high flying aerial attack.

The starting QB connected on 20 of 26 pass attempts but most importantly did not commit a single turnover.… Read more

The 49ers won the game 45-31 advancing to the NFC Championship round.

Colin Kaepernick is, at the moment, one of the most talked about figures in American sports. In the year of the dual-threat quarterback, he is the last of them standing in the NFL playoffs.

And to think: He could...

Just like that, the Packers' season is over. After a win in the opening week of the playoffs, Green Bay's road to the Super Bowl was potentially lining up just as it did two years ago. This time, however, the Packers were unable to string together any victories on the road, with the team now looking for offseason answers for the second year in a row after a divisional round...
