Alex Smith will be dressing for a Super Bowl, but backing up Colin Kaepernick following the San Francisco 49ers' 28-24 win over the Falcons.

"I'm so happy, man," Smith said in the locker room after the game. "This is so surreal. It's such a crazy time, such a crazy moment. Obviously, it's been a unique year, and it would be great to be in there. But I couldn't be happier. This is a great group of guys, and they're all Super Bowl bound. I'm just so happy for all of them."
