The San Francisco 49ers have won through to their first Super Bowl in 18 years and will meet the Baltimore Ravens in next month’s showpiece.
The 49ers came back from a record 17-point deficit to record the memorable 28-24 win over the Atlanta Falcons that saw them clinch the NFC Championship on enemy territory at the Georgia Dome away from home.
Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore led the way for the away side, with Gore scoring a pair of touchdowns, including the winner with 8:23 remaining while Kaepernick threw for 233 yards in the victory.
The 49ers will now face the Ravens after they cruised to a 28-13 triumph over the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium to keep retiring linebacker Ray Lewis' dream of ending his career with a Super Bowl win alive.
Quarterback Joe Flacco was the standout player for the Ravens, outdueling opposite number Tom Brady as he threw for three touchdown passes to ensure his side clinched the AFC Championship.
The Ravens outscored the Patriots 21-0 in the second half with Anquan Boldin scoring two touchdowns and Dennis Pitta adding one of his own thanks largely to the brilliant work of Flacco.
Super Bowl XLVII will now be a battle of the brothers with John Harbaugh coaching the Ravens and his younger sibling Jim in charge of the 49ers and the game already being dubbed 'The Har-bowl'.
The decider will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on February 3.
