NFC Championship 2013: 49ers vs. Falcons

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The first of the two NFL conference championship games is known: the San Francisco 49ers will travel to Atlanta to face the Falcons, who just beat the Seattle Seahawks 30-28 on a last-second Matt Bryant field goal. The Falcons led 20-0 at the half, but somehow managed to turn that into a 28-27 deficit with 30 seconds remaining. That magnificent choke job was avenged by Matt Ryan and the Falcons, though, who got into field goal range for Matt Bryant to win the game.

The 49ers will be looking to avenge last year's playoff defeat to the New York Giants. Collin Kaepernick turned in an amazing performance against the Packers, but can he do the same thing against the Atlanta Falcons? I hope so, at least. But it should be a good game, regardless: we'll have two physical, hard-nosed teams going up against each other with similar game plans: run the ball, create big plays in the passing game. Head on over to the Falcholic for all your Falcons coverage, while Niners Nation should have you covered on the 49ers.

We'll see the two teams face off at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 20.
