After a tight first half, the San Francisco 49ers bid a fond farewell to the venerable Candlestick Park with a thrilling 34-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

 

The 49ers were led by QB Colin Kaepernick who tied the game with a TD pass to Anquan Boldin and put the 49ers ahead for good with a rushing TD of his own.

 

Atlanta QB Matt Ryan led the Falcons back to within three points by tossing fourth quarter TDs to WR Roddy White and TE Tony Gonzalez

 

After recovering an onside kick with 2:00 minutes left in the game, the Falcons moved towards a potential game-winning TD but a deflected Ryan pass was caught and returned for a 89-yard TD by 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman to seal the win.

 

Can the 49ers make it back to the Super Bowl?
