The San Francisco 49ers served notice to the rest of the National Football League on Saturday night. In a game that many "experts" predicted they would lose, the 49ers took the Green Bay Packers behind the woodshed, pounding the Packers in a much more emphatic fashion than the 45-31 final score indicates.

The 49ers were powered to that win by a phenomenal effort from second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who racked up nearly 450 total yards with four touchdowns and set an NFL record for rushing yards in a game by a quarterback with an eye-popping 183.

The win propels the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game, where they will face the winner of Sunday's matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons with a trip to Super Bowl XLVII on the line.
