Normally after the first week of games I’m looking at what the contenders did or didn’t do for their first game. This year is a little different in that there were two upsets that I have to highlight.
50 Years Later
Yes, I did predict the Kansas City Chiefs to be in the Super Bowl before the start of the season. I didn’t have them winning, but they are there. After their Week 10 matchup against the Tennessee Titans this season I said, “The Kansas City Chiefs will never win a Super Bowl with a defense they currently have right now.”
Defense Is Their Calling Card
There has been an ongoing theme with the San Francisco 49ers this season and that has been their dominant defense.
Why Did It Go To Overtime?
The trend in the NFL has been to just go for it on fourth down more often than not. Whether you’re ahead or behind, the odds are most head coaches will go for it and consequences be damned.
