Better still, before the fake punt.

24-7 and you're still in control of the game. Running a fake punt on your own side of the 50 in that spot is coaching scared. And suggesting afterwards that you were game-planning to give up 50 points is just nuts.

Agreed. I'm just saying it would probably have been better for Cuenca's ticker if he didn't see the botched fake punt at all, although he's been a West Ham supporter since youth so I suppose he's used to such shenanigans.

4Niners v Chiefs for me.

I started following the 4niners in the 80s when NFL was first shown on channel 4 ... yeah, I was a glory hunter!! Fell out of love with the game until 2 years ago (too long, boring, didn’t understand the finer points etc) but SF were still my team - they’ve been awful until this season, so good to see them do well. Jimmy the G isn’t as good a QB as Patrick Mahomes, who is unbelievably good at times and whilst not quite at the heights of last season, pulls off some amazing plays and is one of my favourite players.

If it is those two in the final then it’ll be good to see how the 49rs D-Fence disrupt PM. Chiefs to shade it tho’.

49ers v Titans. I have a gut feeling about the Titans.

Am leaning this way as well.

For me, Packers are a paper tiger. Not many difficult games and the team in pink is very physical.

Also have a feeling about the Oilers, I mean Titans. But that's one that you will know by the end of the 1st quarter whether it's going to be a game or the Chiefs run away with it.

Same here, the RB for the Titan's is a one man wrecking ball.

And their D line has been dominating. Vrabel and his coaches have devised excellent plans against both Pats and Ravens. Defense wins championships. I think that trope still may hold true i this age of no contact football. If they can get ahead and then spend the game handing off to Henry, they'v got a decent shot.

The NFL show was excellent last night. Osi's prediction about Jackson back in week 7 was very astute.

Anyway, everything reads towards the 49ers being Champs, they seem to have the best defence and a good offence.

I'm a Chiefs fan so all about outscoring everyone in 2 more games.

For those calling the Titans, and I have been making money betting on them post season, they are 8/1 to win the superbowl. Yes 8/1.

Well worth a small punt if you pardon the pun.

Looks like it’s KC’s D line that’s running the show after all.

Some people think the fix is in for a repeat of SB I

Guess we will know in a few hours.

Good on the Chiefs and good for the big man.

GB have some work to do. 17-0 is not a safe score though.

Fumble and pick later and GB isn’t winning this game.

I really don’t like the 49ers but I’m glad Rodgers is getting thumped.

Is that map saying most of NY are either Jets or Bills fans? Surely that can’t be true.

Interesting map .... why the hate for the Texans so far north and conversely why is there no love for the Eagles in and around Texas?

Redskins, Cowboys, Eagles and Giants all hate each other. All traditional rivals. Not sure why Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arkansas hate the Eagles. Could be that Philadelphia is an absolute ****hole and their fans are louts, but who can say. Colts and Texans are in the same division now, so I guess that’s why the Texans register in Indiana. Nevertheless, the Colts and patriots have had a long heated rivalry and I’m a little surprised the Patriots are still the most hated team in Indiana.

And why would Hawaii hate the Seahawks? Weird.

Cowboys and Eagles not only traditional rivals but are currently the two best teams in that division.

Texans are hated by Colts fans, thus their presence in Hoosierland.
