San Francisco is back in the NFC Championship game.
The 49ers advanced to next Sunday's title game against the Seahawks in Seattle with a 23-10 over Carolina.
Colin Kaepernick threw one touchdown pass and ran for another score in the win as the Niners advanced to their third straight conference title game.
Kaepernick completed 15 of 28 passes for 196 yards while Anquan Boldin had eight catches for 136 yards and Frank Gore ran for 84 yards on 17 carries for the 14-4 49ers.
During the regular season the Niners and Seahawks split two games.
The 49ers held Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in check, intercepting him twice and sacking him four times while stopping the 12-5 Panthers twice on a 1-yard line.
Today's second game features the Broncos at home to the Chargers.
This is the third meeting of the season between these two AFC West clubs. They split the two regular season games they played.
The Chargers earned their ticket to the game with a 27-10 road win over the Bengals. This marks the first time these longstanding rivals are meeting in a postseason game.
