"We've seen the success that Atlanta had (against the 49ers)," Dickson told Maiocco. "We're not going to be naïve. I'm sure they've made corrections. In the end, it's all about us and the things that we do well with running the football and passing the ball, just being a balanced offense.
"We've seen a lot of things on film we can exploit, and we'll go after those things."
In the NFC Championship game, the Falcons jumped out to a 17-0 lead on the 49ers. But San Francisco held Atlanta scoreless in the second half of its 28-24 win. The 49ers' defense allowed the third-fewest yards per game during the regular season.
