The Carolina Panthers and San Francisco 49ers spent most of the first half of their divisional playoff game yapping at one another, with the Panthers complaining — mostly to little effect — about the 49ers' in-your-face antics. In the end, though, Colin Kaepernick may have landed the decisive blow.

Kaepernick capped an eight-play, 77-yard drive with a four-yard touchdown run. Once he crossed into the end zone, he mocked Cam Newton's signature Superman celebration before tacking on his own, the bicep-kissing Kaepernicking. (Linebacker NaVorro Bowman would follow up with his own version after a Newton sack a few minutes later.)

It was pure theater, pro wrestling style, and it was perfect. Panthers fans justifiably lost their minds, but the scoreboard told the story: 49ers up by 10.
