Super Bowl Predictions 2013: 49ers Will Dominate Ravens Defense in Harbaugh Bowl

Much will be made of Jim vs. John Harbaugh in Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3, especially with the two great defenses that each team possesses.

But not to be forgotten is the dynamic offense the San Francisco 49ers boast with Colin Kaepernick leading the charge.

San Francisco is averaging 528 YPG during the playoffs and has been seemingly impossible to stop.

As we saw in each of San Francisco's postseason victories—and mostly all season—it's nearly impossible to stop the 49ers running game once it gets going.

The Niners offense is averaging 236 rushing YPG this postseason and has scored a total of seven ground scores.

Not only is Kaepernick getting it done on the ground—he set the record for most rushing yards in a single postseason game against the Green Bay Packers (181 yards)—Frank Gore is averaging more than 100 YPG in the playoffs and LaMichael James has been as elusive as ever.

The Ravens defense has played exceptionally well against the rush during the playoffs, but those three wins came primarily against pocket passers.

But it doesn't end there for Baltimore's defense.

Did I mention that Kaepernick throws bullets?

If you had the chance to watch him play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, you most likely saw Kap throw an absolute dart to Delanie Walker, among other receivers.

Kaepernick and Michael Crabtree have really developed solid chemistry and Vernon Davis appears to be back on track.

With so many weapons at his disposal, Kap and the 49ers offense have shown no signs of slowing down.

With an accurate aerial attack and dynamic rushing game, the 49ers will be the winners of Super Bowl XLVII.
