Gore, 49ers charge past Falcons for NFC Championship
ATLANTA - Colin Kaepernick was merely human, but Frank Gore's superb second half running and the 49ers defense stood tough in the 4th quarter of a 28-24 win in the NFC Championship Game at the Georgia Dome.
Kaepernick ran just twice, for 21 yards, but let Gore do the heavy lifting after halftime. Gore scored two touchdowns in a three minute stretch for San Francisco.
The Falcons got 396 yards and 3 touchdowns from Matt Ryan in the losing effort.
