SAN FRANCISCO - Colin Kaepernick ran for a quarterback playoff record 181 yards and two touchdowns and threw two scoring passes to Michael Crabtree in leading the San Francisco 49ers back to the NFC championship game with a 45-31 victory against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night. Playoff first-timer Kaepernick outshined reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, who never got in sync for the Packers (12-6) in finishing 26 of 39 for 257 yards with two touchdowns. Kaepernick ran for scores of 20 and 56 yards on the way to topping the rushing mark of 119 yards set by Michael Vick in 2005 against St. Louis.

NEW ORLEANS - Colin Kaepernick, like his Super Bowl-playing predecessors at quarterback, represents the future of the NFL. Like Joe Montana and the West Coast offense and Steve Young and his mobility, Kaepernick is a victory away from becoming the first quarterback to win in a way many thought once impossible. Kaepernick is a running quarterback. But he's also a passing quarterback. Young was both, but he was more of a scrambler than a runner. Kaepernick, on the other hand, can both run and pass within the 49ers offense and with equal skill.

SAN FRANCISCO - Colin Kaepernick stood in a cramped corner of the 49ers' locker room smiling and chatting with Alex Smith late Saturday night when a stranger interrupted the two quarterbacks. "Wow, great game," said former franchise quarterback John Brodie, shaking Kaepernick's hand and patting him on the back. "Nice to meet you. " After a record-setting playoff debut that sent San Francisco to the NFC championship game for the second straight season, Kaepernick needs no more introductions.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Colin Kaepernick threw four touchdown passes in San Francisco's 41-34 win Sunday night over the turnover-prone New England Patriots. Six days after the Patriots' 42-14 win over the Houston Texans, who had the NFL's best record, they were on the other end in another game against one of the league's top teams. Kaepernick, making his fifth start after replacing Alex Smith as San Francisco's starting quarterback, threw scoring passes of 24 yards to Randy Moss, 34 yards to Delanie Walker, and to Michael Crabtree of 27 yards and 38 yards in the fourth quarter to break a 31-all tie. With the win, the 49ers (10-3-1)

Joe Flacco is staying in Baltimore. The Super Bowl MVP quarterback agreed Friday to a new contact with the Ravens, two people with knowledge of the deal told the Associated Press. Terms were not immediately available, but Flacco, a former star quarterback at South Jersey's Audubon High School, was expected to get a long-term contract close to the $20 million average salary Drew Brees earns with New Orleans. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not officially been announced.

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was fined $30,000 by the NFL on Wednesday, but he said he didn't kick Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on purpose. That's why Suh insisted he doesn't need to apologize to Schaub. Suh spoke to reporters for the first time since his left cleat connected with Schaub's groin area in Detroit's loss to Houston last Thursday.   Adderall use in NFL More NFL players are testing positive for amphetamines, a class of substances that includes the ADHD drug Adderall.

THE BEST Blaine Gabbert, Missouri Size: 6-4 1/2, 234. 40 time: 4.61. Projected round: 1 Mayock: "He's a big, strong kid who throws the hell out of the football and has exceptional athletic ability. He's not as clean as Sam Bradford or Matt Ryan. He comes from a spread offense and is going to have to work on both his footwork and his pocket awareness. He's one of those real good athletes who leaves the pocket too quickly. I don't want to kill him for it because he makes plays with his feet, but it's something he's going to have to develop.

SAN FRANCISCO - Colin Kaepernick passed for 243 yards and two touchdowns in his first career start and the San Francisco 49ers whipped the Chicago Bears, 32-7, on Monday night in a highly touted NFC showdown that didn't live up to the hype. Kaepernick threw touchdown passes to Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree, and Kendall Hunter ran for a 14-yard TD as San Francisco (7-2-1) jumped out to a big lead by scoring on each of its first four possessions - with Aldon Smith wreaking havoc on the other side of the ball with five sacks.

Know any good young quarterbacks who can't run? The NFL could use a few. Deep into this 2014 season, two facts about the league's quarterbacks can't be ignored. First, and most problematic for a league whose signal-callers are its most prominent stars: The best of them are graying faster than a mid-January afternoon. Peyton Manning is 38. Tom Brady is 37. Drew Brees is 35. That's a lot of passing yards, record-book entries, and merchandising dollars headed for the exit. Not too far behind in total birthdays are Phillip Rivers (32)

THE EAGLES' final injury report of Week 5 contained no major surprises yesterday, and for the defense, that means it will officially once again be without one of its best playmakers. As expected, the calf injury Mychal Kendricks suffered in the Week 2 win at Indianapolis will sideline the Pro-Bowl caliber inside linebacker for a third consecutive game. The third-year pro did not practice all week, and, at this rate, it is certainly plausible to suggest he could miss next week's prime-time meeting with the Giants, then return after the Week 7 bye. Eagles coach Chip Kelly said before Thursday's practice that Kendricks was "moving a little bit better" and had shown improvement but hadn't yet been reinserted into drills.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 5. Watch 'em roll Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers at Jaguars. Coming off his best game of the season, Big Ben now gets to toy with the NFL's worst pass defense minus its best cornerback, Dwayne Gratz. The only worry is that Roethlisberger may take his foot off the accelerator early, but he will rack up plenty of yards and scores before that happens. Rashad Jennings, RB, Giants vs. Falcons. No defense is more generous to opposing runners than Atlanta's, which coughed up 241 yards and four TDs to the Vikings' backup running backs last week.

Marcus Smith had been a quarterback at Hardaway High School in Columbus, Ga., and the University of Louisville had recruited him to be a quarterback when Smith decided to play there. When he arrived on campus in the fall of 2010, the coaches moved him to linebacker. In 2011, they moved him to defensive end. He was still a defensive end last year, when he finished second in the country with 141/2 sacks. His role and purpose on the field became instinctual to him. "Every time, I had the whole game to rush the passer," he said Tuesday.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The Eagles made it look easy yesterday in taking a 7-0 lead. This did not become the overall tone of the afternoon, however. San Francisco's first possession ended when Colin Kaepernick was sacked by Trent Cole and Connor Barwin, the 49ers' quarterback going down at his 2 on the Birds' first sack since the season opener. Andy Lee came on to punt. The Eagles' Bryan Braman and Trey Burton bulled right up the middle, tossing a blocker into the ball as it came off Lee's foot.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Malcolm Jenkins totaled just six interceptions in five seasons in New Orleans. He recorded his third interception this season on Sunday, giving him a new career high and showing why the Eagles prioritized the safety during the offseason. Jenkins jumped in front of Colin Kaepernick's pass on a third and 3 in the second quarter for the interception, and then he juked through San Francisco's offense for a 53-yard touchdown. When the Eagles signed Jenkins, they craved his versatility.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Their inability to stop the run cost the Eagles too much in their first loss of the season, 26-21, to the 49ers on Sunday. The Eagles allowed 218 yards on 42 carries (5.2 per carry), including 119 yards on 24 carries to Frank Gore. "We are the ones that have to get ourselves off the field, there are no excuses," Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis said. "We have to be better against the run. " The Eagles came into the game 13th in the NFL at 105.7 yards rushing allowed per game, and the Niners were 17th in rushing with an average of 112. But the Eagles were without inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who was out with a calf injury.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Playing defense for a Chip Kelly-coached team means never having to say I'm bored. Even during the best of times, when Kelly's offense is clicking, it's not on the field for very long. Twenty-two of the Eagles' 51 touchdown drives last season were four plays or less. The Eagles finished second in the league in total offense and fourth in the league in scoring last season and the defense still was on the field for a league-high 1,150 snaps. Yesterday definitely wasn't the best of times.

Tom Brady, Patriots: Had just 25 touchdown passes last year, his lowest total since 2006. He responded in 2007 by throwing 50. Brady should get back into the 30s, especially if tight end Rob Gronkowski is healthy. Drew Brees, Saints: His left tackle is Terron Armstead, a third-round pick last year out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Armstead was beaten for three sacks by Greg Hardy in Week 16 last year, but has had a good summer. His continued improvement is key for Brees, whose receiving weapons are among the best in football.

AGENTS NOSTALGIC for the days of exploding rookie signing bonuses might disagree, but for fans and media, having NFL draft picks slotted, with little contract negotiating required, is just the coolest thing ever. Reporters who remember covering Day 6 of this or that first-round pick's training-camp absence, shuttling back and forth between the sides for updates, checking rumors of airport sightings, can scarcely comprehend a world where the top pick strolls into the NovaCare media room on June 9, his deal done, along with those of all the other Eagles draftees.
