David Akers K DET Jan 21 '134 Comments
The 49ers will stick with K David Akers for the Super Bowl.
Akers missed yet another kick in Sunday's NFC Championship escape - shanking it off the uprights - but will remain a man of nine lives. Akers has missed at least one field-goal attempt in seven of 10 games since the 49ers' Week 9 bye. San Francisco can only hope it doesn't have the next Scott Norwood (or Ray Finkle) on its hands.
