January 12, 2013 Updated Jan 12, 2013 at 11:53 PM CDT

San Francisco, CA (NNCNOW.com) --- Colin Kaepernick threw two touchdowns and rushed for two more on Saturday night as the San Francisco 49ers earned a 45-31 win over Green Bay in the NFC divisional playoff round.

Kaepernick totaled 263 passing yards and 181 rushing yards in the win, accounting for four of the six touchdowns scored by San Francisco. His 181 rushing yards are a new NFL record for a quarterback in a single game, that being regular season or postseason.

Aaron Rodgers finished 26-of-39 passing for 257 yards and two touchdowns, while Dejuan Harris was Green Bay's leading rusher with 53 yards and a score in the loss.

This marks the second straight season the Packers have been eliminated in the divisional round, with last year's loss coming to the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
