CK7 threw for one touchdown and ran for another in win.
The San Francisco 49ers secured their place in the NFC Championship game following a 23-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in a hostile clash at the Bank of America Stadium on Sunday.
The 49ers make the championship game for the third consecutive year, after quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw one touchdown pass and ran for another as the 49ers defensive unit were able to shut down Cam Newton.
Kaepernick completed 15 of his 28 passes for 196 yards, while Anquan Boldin had eight catches for 136 yards and Frank Gore ran for 84 yards on 17 carries for the visitors who inflicted just the second home defeat of the season on Carolina.
San Francisco will now visit the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday, where they lost 29-3 back in September, before a 42-13 loss in December.
“We’re different team than we were the first time we played them up there. We have a lot of key playmakers back and we’re ready to go,” Kaepernick said, according to ESPN.
Nevertheless, the 49ers did defeat their rivals at home and Kaepernick insists that they will be a completely different proposition this time round, particularly with Michael Crabtree back in action.
