    Michael Crabtree's big game in the San Francisco 49ers' 23-20 wild-card victory Sunday over theGreen Bay Packers had coach Jim Harbaugh putting the receiver in a class by himself when it comes to catching passes.

    Crabtree, however, playing in just his sixth game since tearing his Achilles in the offseason, had a huge game with eight catches for 125 yards. Perhaps none was bigger than a clutch 17-yard reception during the winning drive on a third-and-10 pass from Colin Kaepernick with San Francisco at its 31.
