NFL playoff schedule 2013: San Francisco advances to NFC Championship game

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

San Francisco were brilliant on Saturday night, and await the winner of Sunday's Falcons-Seahakws game in the NFC Championship.

The San Francisco 49ers will compete for the NFC Championship a week from Sunday, following their impressive 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night. Colin Kaepernick turned in an all-time great playoff performance in his first ever playoff start in the Divisional round, running for 183 yards while passing for 263 yards. The playoff schedule pits them against the winner of Sunday afternoon's other NFC Divisional playoff winner.

That game will be contested between the Atlanta Falcons, who did not play San Francisco this season, and the Niners' division rival the Seattle Seahawks. San Francisco won a defensive battle against Seattle at home during their first meeting, but got blown out in Seattle in Week 16.

If the Falcons win on Sunday, they will host the NFC Championship game. If the Seahawks win, they travel away to Candlestick Park. The game will be broadcast on FOX on Sunday, January 20, with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman calling the action.
