49ers Super Bowl Run

Posted: Jan. 28th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

The San Francisco 49ers played a few Sundays ago against the Green Bay Packers for a chance to advance the division title game the following week. The two teams met before, with the Niners taking victory in both events. The city of San Francisco is now hoping to take the Super Bowl as well.

When the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers square off in this NFC Divisional Playoff Game, it won't be the first time they've met this season. In Week 1, the 49ers ran roughshod over the Packers behind Frank Gore's 16-carry, 112-yard effort on the ground.Alex Smith provided an efficient complement through the air, completing 20 of 26 passes for 211 yards with two scores, while the 49ers' vaunted defense sacked Aaron Rodgers three times, disrupting his timing from the pocket. Most importantly, the unit dominated the line of scrimmage, completely controlling a game that was not nearly as close as the final score of 30-22 would seem to indicate. The rematch offers plenty of intrigue, with Niners quarterbackColin Kaepernick set to make his playoff debut. The second-year pro was inserted into the lineup when Smith suffered a concussion in Week 10.
