49ers rout Packers to book spot in NFC title game
Dave D'Onofrio's Patriots Notebook: Patriots eye same result
The emphatic victory lifted the 49ers into the Jan. 20 National Football Conference title game against the winner of Sunday's showdown between the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks.
Kaepernick had a sensational game, setting a National Football League (NFL) playoff rushing record for a quarterback by gaining 181 yards, including scoring gallops of 56 and 20 yards. He also threw a pair of touchdown passes in the romp.
A 31-yard field by David Akers gave the 49ers a 24-21 lead after a see-saw first half, and San Francisco ran roughshod over the Packers in the second half, rushing for three touchdowns as they put the game out of reach.
