Can't argue with it. Pack might get closer simply because they have more data on film they can cover up from their last game.

Football scores

I agree with the Kansas City score, but Green Bay will beat SF 28-24

I actually think Tennessee is going to win this. They're not Houston. Their D is better than people think.

I won't try and predict a score, but I don't think GB will win this simply because they don't match up well in the trenches against the 49ers. It's hard to gameplan around not being able to protect Rodgers. Just my ignorant opinion.

I see the KC-TN game potentially being closer

Will be legit surprised if GB can even keep it within 10

Which do you want? My heart wants a Titans and Packers SB, my head says Chiefs and 49ers SB. Long as the Chiefs aren't there I'm not bothered, I just don't like Machines, before someone throws the racist flag, I don't like Rodgers. I get the feeling with both QBs that if they win it's down to them, if they lose it's down to everyone else. So long-winded answer I'm going Chiefs for hopefully a voodoo pick and 49ers.

But the Titans are underdogs, which I usually pull for. Plus, their franchise has never won the SB as the Titans or Oilers. And their fans had to endure "one yard short" in the one SB they got to play in.

Cheeseheads have already won 4 titles. Not to mention I don't like Aaron Rodgers. And I find their fan base overrated. I get tired of hearing how tough they are watching games in cold temperatures. If they couldn't stand the cold, they wouldn't be in frikkin' Green Bay. Nobody calls the Dolphins fans tough for watching games in 90 degree heat.

I have bad memories about the Niners fan base. There were a ton of them in the 90's I had to endure. Now I can't think of a single one that I know personally. Badwaggoners. Can't stand them. Not to mention the SF area has had the Warriors & Giants win it all recently. So they aren't starving for a champion.

Pulling for the Packers in the NFC because that's my daughter's favorite team and she's very invested. And we have family connections to the dude after whom the trophy is named (although I couldn't quite explain how... there are some dead uncles involved, but my mom's side of the fam has the last name)... Pulling for the Chiefs because I'd like to see Andy Reid get the (unfair, IMO) monkey off his back... That all all said, the Titans and Tannehill are a great story, and while I'm pretty much anti-Bay Area in all sports and more, I like Garoppolo...

So, a Super Bowl I rematch is my first choice.... and taking GB and the points; KC and giving the points...

I watched a condensed remastered Super Bowl I from NFL Classic games. How the hell did they get it in HD? They pieced that together so well it was a pleasure to watch. A few things...…

I think there were 4 or 5 penalties in the entire game.

Even though it was officially called the AFL VS NFL game, the guys calling the game referred to it as the Super Bowl on more than one occasion.

Despite the lopsided score, the Chiefs were not out matched. Maybe the NFL had more quality teams in their league, but the AFL's best were every bit as good as the Packers. But in every game you can have a turning point whether it be a play or a series that can decide the game and that's what happened. Chiefs were not inferior at any position except for maybe RB.

Mostly all sports have changed penalty wise wether it be safety or people have just gone soft, football (soccer) you had to more or less assault a player to get a yellow or red card nowadays you only need look at someone to get one. Same with the NFL, pass interference and stuff like that since I started watching in 85 is or seems to be called more now than it was then.

Have you been looking at the Madden predictions someone ran the Madden game and had the Titans/Chiefs something like the score you had.

Good game by the Chiefs offensive line. Mahomes had all day in the pocket and had room to run when there was nothing there. Any QB would have success under those conditions.

Rodgers has the tendency to do the same. Lets see if the 49ers allow him that luxury.

I don't play Madden, but I imagine, like OOTP, that if you had a hundred people run the game you'd come up with a variety of scores.

Looking at all those scores and finding some mean score would probably be more informative than looking at any individual score

Felt the commentary team made more of the Mahomes run than it was, good run but not great as the tackling was pretty poor. Think it was Brock about 2 yards out who seemed to be patting Mahomes. on the back rather than trying to stop him.

Combination of both, but I lean more towards poor tackling. It was almost as if they were afraid of hitting him all game.

At some point a defense has to make a stand when the QB continues to run out of the pocket. Hate to say it, but Clowney did just that against the Eagles. I'm not suggesting to purposely hurt someone, but the QB has to get the message there might be consequences for leaving the pocket, not consider it one of his strengths.

I am and always have been a big fan of defense. I'm hoping that Mahomes gets his jock stapled to his forehead by the 49ers, and this is coming from a long time Cowboys fan. I have no ill will towards the 49ers anymore because there are grown adults of drinking age that aren't old enough to remember that rivalry.

Hitting the QB is a 15 yard penalty in today's NFL
