Niners have won seven straight games, rolling into Carolina to attempt to make Panthers their eighth prize. The defending NFC champion hasn't turned the ball over since Week 14. They've averaged 30 points per game over the last three weeks.
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick led San Francisco in the 23-20 win over the Green Bay Packers. He has turned to receiver Michael Crabtree, who caught eight passes with 125-yards outing in that game. Crabtree returned from an Achilles' Hill surgery and didn't immediately make an impact until game against the Packers.
Running back Frank Gore is considered the main engine that runs San Francisco's offense. He finished ninth in the NFL with 1,128 rushing yards, which brings his record of reaching more than 1,000 yards to seventh-time in his nine-year career.
Although the 49ers lost 10-9 to the Panthers in Week 10, the 49ers are in a different position with Crabtree back and Gore consistently outputting the rush yards.
Panthers' Cam Newton will make his first postseason play, and he will be looking to wide receiver Steve Smith as his No. 1 wide receiver. While Smith certainly can catch passes and make plays, he hasn't fully recovered from a knee injury. Wide receiver Brandon LaFel and former 49er Ted Ginn will need to step up to gain an edge over San Francisco, whose defense has yielded a league-low of 14.9 points per game since Week 4.
Panthers' Jordan Gross and 49ers' Joe Stanley were two of the best left tackles in the league this season. They will each face two of the league's most dominant pass rushers, 49ers linebacker Aldon smith and Carolina defensive end Greg Hardy.
