Opponents have completed 10-of-15 passes for 264 yards with three touchdowns and one interception on passes traveling 16-plus yards past the line of scrimmage against the San Francisco 49ers in the postseason. Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has 15 touchdown passes, two interceptions and a 117.2 passer rating this season on passes traveling more than 15 yards past the line of scrimmage, including four touchdowns with no interceptions in three playoff games.

QB | Colin Kaepernick | San Francisco 49ers | Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Thursday, Jan. 24, the key to containing San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick in Super Bowl XLVII is to not let him get to the outside, in addition to tacking him when the opportunity arises. "We're going to have to tackle him. We're going to have to keep him inside of our defense," Harbaugh said. "We're not going to be able to run past him. He's fully capable of putting 200 yards on you, just as capable as Frank Gore is or any of their running backs. He's not just an integral part of their passing game, he's a huge part of their run game. We'll have a plan for it. Assignment football is going to be really important for us. Change-ups are going to be important for us. We just have to play well against him."
