The 49-yard field goal by Phil Dawson in the first quarter against the Panthers is the longest in franchise postseason history. Dawson eclipsed the mark set by Wade Richey on Jan. 3, 1999, against the Packers.

Dawson is 6 for 6 on field-goal attempts so far in the playoffs and 38 of 42 overall this season, his first with the 49ers.
Dawson, 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, is in his 15th NFL season.

Dawson credited, in part, playing offensive tackle in high school for his success as a kicker in college and the pros.

"Being severely outmanned physically, I had to learn attention to detail just to survive," Dawson said. "That discipline paid off because I now play a position that requires that same attribute."
