NFC Championship Tale Of The Tape: Colin Kaepernick Vs. Russell Wilson

Despite being a five seed, it is not a huge surprise that the San Francisco 49ers have returned to the NFC Championship for the third straight year. Underdogs for the first time this postseason, can Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers get another road win to return to the Super Bowl? To do so, they’ll have to beat a Seattle team that has been nearly unbeatable at home with Russell Wilson at quarterback. These two young, dual-threat signal callers go head-to-head on Sunday.
