After going into the second half down by ten with a
score of 24-14 and recovering from a once 17-0 deficit in the second quarter, the San Francisco 49ers rallied to the occasion and advanced to Super Bowl
XLVII. For the second week in a row the Atlanta Falcons surrendered a major
lead but have come up short this time to execute a last minute, game winning
Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore were the major players
for the 49ers but certainly not the only ones who fought hard and dug deep to
pull out the victory. Kaepernick showed poise in the pocket by going 16 of 21
on the day for 233 yards and a touchdown. Gore contributed heavily as well with
two touchdowns off of 21 touches for 90 yards reported ESPN.com.

Will it be a Harbaugh Super Bowl or will the
Patriots deliver with their consistent, successful play and return to the Super

and they are now searching for win number six to tie them with the Pittsburgh
Steelers with the most Super Bowl rings of all-time.
The Super Bowl will be played on Sunday, February 3,
2013 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans; kickoff will be at 6:30
