49ers vs. Falcons: Early Stat Predictions, Simulations for NFC Championship Game

The NFC Championship is set for a trip to Super Bowl XLVII.

It's a matchup of polarizing philosophies when the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons meet in the NFC Championship Game.

The 'Niners are a run-first offense that like to control the line of scrimmage and work play-action.

Atlanta is pass-first and relies on quarterback Matt Ryan to dice up defenses and push the pace. Along with the Seattle Seahawks, though, San Francisco's defense is on par with the best Atlanta will face.

Can Ryan and the Falcons get Tony Gonzalez to his first Super Bowl? Or will this group of 49ers restore history to San Francisco with a sixth Super Bowl appearance?

Let's check the simulated results and find out.
