SF has a better all around defense, their offense can beat you in the air or on the ground. KC is basically The Greatest Show on Turf 2.0 where they hope they can outscore the other team since their defense isn't great.

It'll be entertaining, but SF wins.

KC has played 7 games since their week 12 bye (5 regular season, 2 playoff). In those 7 games their opponent scored (in increasing order): 3, 3, 9, 16, 21, 24, 31*. For an average of 15.3 PPG. Sure, I guess KC doesn't have a 'great' defense, but it's at least above average.

*The 31 was vs HOU which included a ST score and a muffed punt return inside KC's own 5.

when my team is not in it...who am I kidding, my team will never be in it

Anyway, I tend to cheer for players. Love watching Mahomes, and feel bad for Andy Reid's playoff history, but also really like Richard sherman and want Garrapolo to have a killer day passing. All these are conflicting.

But at the end of the day, will root for KC for no real reason at all.

Maybe. KC gave up 308 points this year. 49ers gave up 310.

I'll be somewhere being tortured to watch it live. Worst 4 hours of my life that I'll never get back. Thinking about not watching, but that would be incredibly anti-social, even for me. I mean, I could have other things to do at that time, be in another room or take a walk or what-not. Maybe there will be a kindred spirit that I can play gin rummy or Farkle with.

Wonder what that looks like if KC had the Seahawks in their division, as opposed to the other offensive "powerhouses" in the AFC west (Denver, Oakland, LAC)
