49ers' Colin Kaepernick sets quarterback playoff rushing record

SAN FRANCISCO -- Colin Kaepernick has set an NFL record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a playoff game.

Kaepernick broke Michael Vick's mark of 119 yards with a 56-yard keeper on an option play in the third quarter of Saturday night's playoff game against Green Bay. The run gave Kaepernick 163 yards on 12 carries, setting a 49ers franchise record for the postseason. Vick set his record for Atlanta in a 47-17 win over St. Louis on Jan. 15, 2005.

Kaepernick earlier scored on a 20-yard run and also threw two touchdown passes in the first half. He joined Chicago's Jay Cutler and Cleveland's Otto Graham as the only players to throw two TD passes and run for two TDs in a playoff game. Graham did it twice.
