NFC Championship Game update: Falcons cruise to 17-0 lead over 49ers

USA TODAY Sports

It's the Julio Jones show in Atlanta, as the Falcons are dominating the 49ers 17-0 in the second quarter.

The Atlana Falcons used their passing attack to take a fast lead over the San Francisco 49ers and are currently dominating the NFC Championship Game.

At the start of the second quarter, the Falcons lead 17-0. Both of their touchdowns came from Julio Jones. The first was on a 46 yard bomb from Matt Ryan, made possible when the Niners' secondary completely broke down. The second came on a 20-yard strike to open the second quarter.

Jones is stealing the show. He has six receptions for 120 yards and two touchdowns already, and is simply embarrassing the Niners stout defense.

Things haven't been much better on the other side of the ball. San Francisco has managed only -2 total yards, and had just two drives, both ending in punts. Colin Kaepernick completed just one pass for three yards, while Frank Gore has been a non-factor with six yards on two carries.

It's a dominant performance from top to bottom for Atlanta.
