ATLANTA, GA. - After surrendering 445 total yards and four touchdowns to Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson last Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons defence catch a break this weekend.
Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers come to town. He totalled only 444 total yards and four touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers last week. One yard less than Wilson.
So yeah, piece of cake ... Not!
“He’s a game-wrecker,” Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan said of Kaepernick this week.
The Niners and host Falcons kick it off Sunday at 3 p.m. EST at the Georgia Dome (CTV/FOX) in the NFC championship game. The winner faces the AFC champion, New England or Baltimore, in Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3 in New Orleans.
