Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Phil Dawson kicked a game-winning 33-yard field goal as time expired on Sunday night to give the San Francisco 49ers a 23-20 win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC wild card playoffs at Lambeau Field.

It was Dawson's third field goal of the game for the 49ers, with that team knocking the Packers out of the NFL playoffs for a second straight season.

Colin Kaepernick was the biggest offensive playmaker in the game, finishing 16-of-30 passing for 227 yards and a touchdown while also adding 98 yards on the ground.

That performance comes just one season after Kaepernick posted a league record for quarterbacks in last year's playoff win over Green Bay with 181 rushing yards.

Aaron Rodgers finished the game 17-of-26 passing with 177 yards and a touchdown, but he was also sacked four times by the San Francisco defense.

Eddie Lacy was a big workhorse for Green Bay, getting 21 carries and turning that into 81 yards. The lone rushing touchdown for the Packers, though, belonged to John Kuhn on one of his two carries.

San Francisco will now advance to the NFC divisional round and will take on the Carolina Panthers, with that game set for 12:05 p.m. on Jan. 12.
