49ers keys to victory
1. Gold rush: Establish the ground game first (hey, you have Frank Gore and Colin Kaepernick) to keep the clock running. Then hit them with the big play.
2. Gold dust twins: Safeties Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner have been playing well all season. They need to continue to set the tone against physical receiver Anquan Boldin.
3. Gold standard: A year ago, David Akers set the record for most points by a kicker in a season (166). This season, he has been brutal (29 of 42). He needs to clear his head and return to dominance.
