I believe teams can throw on the Chiefs.....
Titans limit the Chiefs to 6 possessions and Mahomes only scores on 3. Titans run for like 250 yards and win 24-21.
yeah i edited my post. I meant to say they are 7th worst in rushing yards allowed
I'm rooting for the Chiefs but I see the Titans as a major threat to them. Mahomes played as well in week 10 (a game we lost to the Titans) as he has all year. Granted it took some bad miscues for the Chiefs to lose that game (a fumble, a blocked kick, a botched kick, etc...).
Really excited but utterly nervous. What up to all the old (and new) 9er fans here!
SF got three key players back on their defense (Kwon Alexander, Dee Ford and Jaquski Tartt) that were out for the first game.I don't have a ton of faith that the Packers are going to go down to Santa Clara, having said that using week 12s thumping as the benchmark is foolhardy, Green Bay was kind of having an identity crisis on offense (they struggled for several games when Adams came back) and defense around that time, they lost Bryan Bulaga almost right out of the gate and they got down early.
Green Bay has improved a lot since then (in fact they haven't lost since then). They are playing much better on offense and defense since that time.
I remember the last time Green Bay rematch Rd against a regular season opponent that blew them out they went into Seattle and barring that miracle comeback would have won.
I'm not actually convinced that Green bay can pull the upset off but I do think this game will be much more competitive and I'm hoping beyond hell that they can make that happen.
Yep, 3 amazingly tough losses. We win that Conference Game in 2011 if freaking Kyle Williams just doesn't try to catch ANY punts. Navarro forced that fumble on the Giants gawd dammit!!!!!!!
It's hard to imagine and scary to think that of the 49ers defense being even better than they were week 12 against Green Bay.
Bowman forced that fumble on Marshawn GODDAMMIT!
We went from having the hottest coach & QB the league had seen in years to Chip Kelly & Blaine Gabbert in 2 short years. Fucking, Baalke.
Oh I haven't lol.
Fucking Jed too. I'm so fucking glad he got his head out of his ass and made the right move hiring Kyle and John.
Jed chose Baalke over Harbaugh which was a terrible move then, and in hindsight and even worse move. However we may have never gotten Shanny without that and I absolutely think he is a better offensive coach than Harbaugh.
Slightly different challenge since KC has no issue coming back from big deficits. Mahomes won't be rattled.Titans can definitely beat the Chiefs.
It's just that once KC gets into gear, it's probably over. So you can't let them get into gear. But while the specifics are different, I don't think the caliber of the challenge is different from taking out the Ravens, and they pulled that off.
I think I legit cried after the Giants NFC championship game, I couldn't believe what happened. And I was so angry after the 2013 NFC championship game I didn't talk to anyone for like a whole day for fear that I'd go off on someone. But this year's Niners team? It's something special and I truly think we can win it all this time.
There's no question that Kyle is a better offensive coach, but I think we would have still had Kaep and won a SB like the Spurs redemption year in 2014 without front office interference.
