FINAL: 49ers 23, Panthers 10: The Carolina Panthers ended their season Sunday with a playoff loss at home to the 49ers, 23-10. In the loss, Carolina was bitten by two turnovers and seven penalties, five of which led to 49ers first downs. San Francisco will advance to play at Seattle in the NFC Championship game next Sunday.

4:22 4th: 49ers 23, Panthers 10: A play after being gifted a first down on a personal foul call, Cam Newton was intercepted on an errant pass over the middle and with a two-score lead, the 49ers seem to be in control of the game.

7:41 3rd: 49ers 23, Panthers 10: Carolina's defense held on a key 3rd down to force a field goal and keep the game within two scores as time is running out.

Dawson was good on his third FG of the game, but denying a TD gives the Panthers a realistic shot as there are less than 8 minutes to play.

:33 3rd: 49ers 20, Panthers 10: Carolina ate up over 8 minutes of the clock but did not get any points out of it as they were forced to punt late in the quarter and will head to the fourth down by 10.

Carolina owns a 9-minute advantage in time of possession but trails by two scores.

8:59 3rd: 49ers 20, Panthers 10: After forcing a Carolina punt to start the second half, San Fran went on an 8-play, 77-yard drive capped by a Kaepernick TD run and the 49ers are up 2 scores.

HALF: 49ers 13, Panthers 10: At half, Cam Newton is 8-for-10 passing for 136 yards and a TD, but the Panthers have failed to score on seven snaps from inside the 5 and own the game's only turnover.

Carolina also has four first-down giving penalties and five overall.

:05 2nd: 49ers 13, Panthers 10: Vernon Davis caught a ball in the corner that was upheld after a review and the 49ers will take a 3-point lead into halftime.

There was a personal foul for unsportsmanlike on San Fran after the play after head coach Jim Harbaugh protested the initial call on the field of incomplete.

3:41 2nd: Panthers 10, 49ers 6: For the second time in three series' the Panthers got inside the 5-yard line but were met by 49ers resistance to keep them out of the endzone. A shorth Gano FG gives the Panthers a 10-6 lead, though.

13:40 2nd: Panthers 7, 49ers 6: Cam Newton needed just one play on the short field as he connected with Steve Smith streaking down the left sideline and the Panthers are in front early in the 2nd quarter.

13:47 2nd: 49ers 6, Panthers 0: Carolina's defense held with a quick 3-and-out and the Panthers were handed good field position at the plus-31 following a big punt return by Ted Ginn.

14:54 2nd: 49ers 6, Panthers 0: Carolina rolled the dice on 4th and goal from the 1-yard line on the first play of the second quarter but Cam Newton was stuffed on a sneak and the 49ers will take over from their own 1 in a 6-0 game.

4:33 1st: 49ers 6, Panthers 0: The game is getting physical early as Carolina already has two personal fouls and three first-down giving penalties. San Fran has just two FGs to show for two drives though.

Phil Dawson's 33-yard FG was his 15th conversion in his last 16 tries. It was also the first time Carolina has allowed points on each of the first two drives of a game all year.

6:11 1st: 49ers 3, Panthers 0: Attempting to establish a responding drive, Cam Newton had a 3rd down pass tipped and after bouncing off Brandon LaFell's hands, ended up in San Fran linebacker Patrick Willis'.

Already halfway through the first quarter, each team has had one drive. The Panthers' resulted in a turnover while the 49ers earned 3 points.

9:12 1st: 49ers 3, Panthers 0: A drive-changing penalty on Carolina's Mike Mitchell kept the possession alive for the 49ers who closed out a 13-play, 5:48 drive with a 49-yard field goal.

Mitchell's very-questionable 15-yard penalty not only kept the 49ers drive going, but moved them into field goal range on the game's opening drive. 

Luke Kuechly's sack on 3rd down created the longer FG attempts for the 49ers and essentially stopped the well-established drive.

15:00 1st: Panthers vs. 49ers: Carolina, wearing black-on-black with their silver helmets will kick off to open the game against San Francisco with the winner headed to Seattle next week.


Given their status as defending conference champions, Carolina head coach Ron Rivera noted that the San Francisco 49ers are the measuring stick of the NFC.

If that is the case, Rivera's Panthers have to feel pretty good about this Sunday's divisional round matchup at Bank of America Stadium.

The Panthers have won four straight and eight of their last 10 overall against the 49ers, though this contest will mark the first between the clubs in the playoffs.

Still, Carolina owns two wins at home and on the road during this series winning streak and outlasted the Niners 10-9 in a defensive struggle in San Francisco back on Nov. 10.

The two teams combined for just 401 total yards and went 9-for-30 on 3rd-down attempts. There was also a total of 10 sacks in the game, six for Carolina, and each team had two turnovers.

It was a predictable style of football given the Panthers finished this season ranked second in the NFL in total defense, run defense and points allowed per game, and sixth versus the pass.

The 49ers were just as solid, ranking fifth in total defense, fourth against the run, seventh versus the pass and third in points allowed.

That win for the Panthers came during an eight-game win streak as Carolina won 11 of 12 after starting the season 1-3 to win the NFC South for the fourth time. It wasn't easy, though, and Carolina still needed a 21-20 road win over Atlanta in Week 17 to wrap up the division and get a first-round bye.

"For reasons we all know, having home-field advantage is very exciting," said Panthers Pro Bowl quarterback Cam Newton. "We're going to need our fans more than anything. I don't think our fans get a lot of credit for the support that they give us.

"We're hopefully going to put up a good performance."

The locals have reason to be excited about this team under Rivera, who has improved the club to records of 6-10, 7-9 and then 12-4 this season following a 2-14 mark in 2010. That has Carolina back in the postseason for the first time since 2008.

"When I got here (in 2011), I told the guys what the vision was ... the vision to win Super Bowls. That's how I feel," said Rivera. "I think we have the beginnings of a good football team. I think we've done some really good things and put ourselves in position to be where we are. This is not an accident."

They bye paid off in the injury department as both wide receiver Steve Smith and running back Jonathan Stewart -- two of just nine players left from the '08 playoff team -- are ready to return from injury.

Smith missed Week 17 with a knee injury, while Stewart stat out the final four games of the regular season with a knee issue after missing the first seven contests of the season because of a foot injury.

Despite matching Carolina's 12-4 record in the regular season, the Niners entered the postseason as a wild card club and needed to best the hosting Green Bay Packers 23-20 last Sunday to advance.

In the bitter cold, the 49ers rallied from four points down in the fourth quarter to go ahead on Colin Kaepernick's 28-yard touchdown pass to tight end Vernon Davis early in the frame.

Green Bay got a game-tying field goal from Mason Crosby with 5:06 to play, but Phil Dawson booted San Francisco into the next round with a 33-yard field goal as time expired.

"It is right now," Dawson said when asked if it was the biggest kick of his 15-year career. "I've waited a long time to win a playoff game."

Kaepernick used his arm and legs to beat the Packers, throwing for 227 yards and rushing for another 98 yards on seven carries.

"It was amazing to get the win today," Kaepernick said. "We came back, we fought, we played hard."

With the victory, the 49ers' Jim Harbaugh became the first coach to win 13-or- more games, including the playoffs, in his first three seasons since the 1970 merger.


As is the case with most NFL games, a lot of focus will be on the quarterbacks and this matchup features two players drafted in 2011 with some similar tendencies.

Newton, the top pick of that draft, continued to show growth on the field and set a new career high with 24 touchdown passes while getting intercepted just 13 times. He is the only quarterback in league history to have 50-plus passing and 25-plus rushing touchdowns over his first three seasons and his 2,032 rushing yards are the most ever by a QB in his first three seasons.

Kaepernick, meanwhile, joined Steve Young as the only quarterbacks in San Francisco history to have at least 3,000 passing and 500 rushing yards in a single season and the second-round pick had 21 touchdown passes to eight interceptions this season.

While Kaepernick noted this week that the players do have some similarities, Newton steered away from comparisons and noted they are two different players.

"I'm a fan of him, but I don't have to prepare for Kaepernick. I'm more worried about trying to prepare for (49ers linebackers) NaVarro Bowman, Patrick Willis and those stout defensive lineman they have," said Newton.

Neither quarterback performed well in the earlier meeting this season -- Newton threw for 169 yards and ran for just 15; Kaepernick was limited to 16 yards rushing, 91 yards throwing and was sacked six times -- but Kaepernick does come in with the playoff experience edge.

The 26-year-old has a career postseason passer rating of 93.9 and the Niners are 13-0 when he starts and posts a rating of 100 or better.

Kaepernick's goal will be avoiding a defense that put him on the ground a lot back in November. Defensive tackle Dwan Edwards sacked him twice, defensive end Charles Johnson was credited with 1 1/2 sacks and stud middle linebacker Luke Kuechly also had a sack.

Interestingly, none of the sacks were registered by defensive end Greg Hardy, who had a club single-game record of four sacks in Week 17 versus Atlanta and matched Kevin Greene's 1998 team record of 15 sacks in a season.

Hardy's play this season helped Carolina tie a 1996 team record of 60 sacks this season, the most in the NFL. Nine of those came versus the Falcons.

And even though he didn't get to Kaepernick last time, the Niners know they have to keep an eye on Hardy.

"Greg Hardy is big, real athletic guy, real slippery," San Francisco left tackle Joe Staley said. "When it seems like he's getting blocked, he finds a way to get off blocks and make plays."

Two big differences for the 49ers offense this weekend will be the presence of wide receiver Michael Crabtree and Davis.

Davis suffered a concussion in the second quarter versus the Panthers, depriving Kaepernick of one of his top targets. The tight end caught 13 of Kaepernick's touchdown passes this season and has six career postseason touchdowns. That is tied for the second most by a tight end in NFL history, behind Oakland's Dave Caper's seven.

Davis has gone over 100 yards receiving in four of his six postseason games.

Crabtree, meanwhile, did not make his season debut until Week 13 due to a torn Achilles and made eight catches for 125 yards versus the Packers. His performance also earned some high praise from Harbaugh.

"People talked about cold weather and it being tough to catch balls, but the greatest catcher of all time, Michael Crabtree, catches everything. It's unbelievable," he said postgame.

Harbaugh didn't back off on the kind words on Monday either.

"He catches the football," the coach said of his receiver. "A lot of people talk about different things for receivers, 40-times or three-cones, how fast they run around the little orange cones etcetera, but pretty darn important to catch the ball for a receiver. I just have never personally seen anybody catch the ball better than Michael Crabtree does."

The Panthers have a solid playmaker on their roster in Smith, who was second on the club with 64 catches and 745 yards to go along with four touchdowns.

And though Carolina did not have a 1,000-yard receiver, six players caught at least 26 passes and seven hauled in a scoring pass from Newton.

It was the same approach to the 11th-ranked ground game, where DeAngelo Williams led the way with 843 yards and three touchdowns, Newton ranked second with 585 yards with six rushing scores and fullback Mike Tolbert ran for five touchdowns and caught another two.

"One thing about this stage is that it's not going to be about me," Newton said. "There are a lot of guys that play an integral part in the things that go on behind the stage so to speak."

Kuechly and fellow linebacker Thomas Davis are two players that are integral to the defense. The duo combined for 179 tackles and six sacks and were the only linebacker combo this season to both log at least 120 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions.

Hardy, meanwhile, has 24 sacks in his last 25 games.


Given the similar blueprints to how the teams run, the biggest difference going into Sunday's matchup postseason experience.

"Our guys have done this before. It isn't the first time they have done this. Onward now," said Harbaugh after the Green Bay game.

Newton is doing his best to shake off the lack of experience talk and both he and Rivera have mentioned that they fell the Panthers have been playing postseason football for weeks thanks to the slow start and tight race in the NFC, one that saw the 10-6 Arizona Cardinals not make the playoffs.

"(Less playoff experience) doesn't mean anything. We're all playing on a clean slate as far as playoff preparation. To be honest, this is similar to the games we've played all season, must-have wins," said the Panthers quarterback.

Then there is the fact that the Panthers have already bested the Niners once this season.

"I think one thing it did help is that San Francisco is a very physical football team and we were able to play with them and win the game. I think that really helped instill a little bit of confidence as to the type of football team we can be. They are the measuring stick of the NFC because they're the defending NFC champs," said Rivera.

Just like Newton can't worry about making his playoff debut, the Niners aren't likely to come in worried about mimicking the earlier loss. While it could once again prove to be a defensive test, the additions of Davis and Crabtree to the mix should tilt the field in San Francisco's favor.

    Heckeva throw and catch. Smith is looking really strong today. Go Panthers and punch your ticket.

    Panthers are playing well - outplaying the Niners so far. Smitty is looking really, really good today, and Cam's throw to Smitty in the EZ between two defenders is an ESPN highlight.

    A little worried that neither of these teams (or the Seahawks for that matter) can score enough points to beat either the Patriots or the Broncos - maybe they can handle the Chargers...

    You mean Superman had 7 tries from the 1 yard line and couldn't score? He's still all for himself and no one else.

    GWNUNN... it's shocking isn't it? Because it's the exception.

  • kingfather Jan 12, 2014

    Anyone who doubts that the refs not the players decide the games, needs only watch a replay of this game. Obviously,the NFL and its refs decided that the SF TV market is more valuable than Charlotte. No other reasonable explanation for the disparity in the officiating----even the TV announcers (who probably be reprimanded by the league) called why the same infraction was being called on Carolina and not on SF. % decide who wins in the NFL, not athletes.
