Keys to Kaepernick versus Wilson
Which quarterback will have the edge in Sunday's NFC Championship Game?

On Sunday, fans of the National Football League are in for a treat. Not only will the NFC Championship Game feature the two strongest teams in the conference this season, but it will showcase two of the sport's most talented young quarterbacks -- the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick and the Seahawks' Russell Wilson.
What's interesting about the matchup is that both quarterbacks have trended in opposite directions as the season has progressed. Kaepernick scuffled out of the gate, while Wilson came out strong. But as the regular season waned, the tables seem to have turned. Now it's Kaepernick who appears to be peaking at the right time, while Wilson has struggled.
Will those recent trends continue when it matters most on Sunday? I broke down the film to see what's going on with both QBs in recent games and what sort of impact that will have on the game plans for Sunday.
