San Francisco 49ers defeat Atlanta Falcons

San Francisco 49ers defeated the hapless Atlanta Falcons 28-24 after falling behind 17-0 at halftime in the NFC championship game Sunday. The Falcons' momentum faltered after fumbling the ball twice in the 3rd quarter.

The 49ers scrambling quarterback Colin Kaepernick, 25, rushed for only 21 yards in the game. But it was the mere threat of him running that discombobulated the Falcons defense. Kaepernick passed for 233 yards and one touchdown to earn himself a shot at winning his 1st Super Bowl ring.

The Falcons had a chance to win the game in the final seconds of the 4th quarter. But the 49ers defense held quarterback Matt Ryan and the Falcons on 4th-and-4 to win their first trip back to the Super Bowl in 18 years.

The 49ers will face the Baltimore Ravens in the big game that has been dubbed the 'Beyonce Bowl' in New Orleans on February 3.

Sports analysts will have a field day hyping up the final game of alleged murderer Ray Lewis of the Ravens and the so-called "Harbaugh Bowl" (the 49ers are coached by Jim Harbaugh and his brother John Harbaugh coaches the Ravens) -- but the day (and the ring) will most likely belong to Kaepernick.

Kaepernick, who was selected by the 49ers in the 4th round of the 2011 NFL draft, earned his starting spot this season after replacing quarterback Alex Smith who suffered a concussion in week 10. Kaepernick, who was adopted as an infant, wrote himself a letter in the 4th grade, predicting he would play for the niners "even if they aren't good in seven years."

Kaepernick's birth mother has attempted to reach out to the boy she gave up for adoption, but Kaepernick has declined to meet her.

      2 men are dead while that alleged murderer gets to go to the Super Bowl. I wish one of the fawning reporters would ask him what happened to his white suit with all the blood on it. Once again a celebrity gets away with murder. :no:

      @ Smonae80: You can respect his game if you want, but he fails as a human being. :nono:

    • Breezy

      Yes the Falcons beat themselves! Our defense couldn't stop the run. Our secondary is weak. I hope they get it right in August. FALCONS RISE UP!! Anyway, every team that has played and beat the falcons in a playoff game has won the super bowl. I'm glad its the Harbough brothers competing and not Harbough vs Belichick :tea:
