Better late than never: 49ers rally to win NFC

Frank Gore’s nine-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter gave the 49ers their first lead and ended up being the difference in San Francisco’s 28-24 comeback victory over Atlanta in the NFC championship game.
Julio Jones’ toe-tapping effort provided his second touchdown of the day and a 17-0 Atlanta lead. But Tarell Brown and the 49ers rallied despite Jones’ huge afternoon to advance to the Super Bowl.
LaMichael James’ 15-yard touchdown run got San Francisco on the board, and the 49ers rallied for a 28-24 win over Atlanta to advance to their first Super Bowl since after the 1994 season.
In leading the 49ers to the Super Bowl, quarterback Colin Kaepernick showed he’s more than a runner, shredding the Falcons for 233 yards passing on a 16-for-21 day.
