The San Francisco 49ers overcame an early 17-point deficit, and multiple mistakes along the way, to defeat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24 at the Georgia Dome. 

Frank Gore was the work horse for San Francisco scoring both of the team's second half touchdowns, including a nine-yard run with eight minutes remaining which put the visitors ahead for good. 

Vernon Davis had his breakout game of the playoffs, leading the 49ers in receiving yards (106) and scoring a second quarter touchdown.

Matt Ryan was superb in the first half hooking up with Julio Jones for touchdown passes of 46 and 20 yards, but two turnovers in the second half stopped Atlanta's momentum and gave San Francisco a chance to take control of the game.

Let's take a look at the images that defined San Francisco's final hurdle to Super Bowl XLVII.
