Gore rallies 49ers over Falcons, into Super Bowl

ATLANTA -- Frank Gore ran for two second-half touchdowns, and the San Francisco 49ers rebounded from a 17-0 deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24 in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, sending the 49ers to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1995.

NFL Replay will re-air the San Francisco 49ers' 28-24 win over the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 8 p.m. ET.

The top-seeded Falcons tried to pull out another season-saving drive at the end, but Matt Ryan's fourth-down pass for Roddy White with 1:13 remaining was knocked down by 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman.

The 49ers will meet the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3 and will try to join the Pittsburgh Steelers as the only teams with six Super Bowl championships.

The victory was sweet redemption for the 49ers, who lost an overtime thriller to the New York Giants a year ago in the NFC title game.
