- Your NFC Divisional Round Playoff Game Part 2 Open Thread – January 12, 2020
Over in the AFC it’s a foregone conclusion that the Ravens and Chiefs are gonna butt heads next week and that the games played this weekend are just a formality. NOT SO IN THE NFC, brother! Or sister. It’s none of my business as to which sibling you choose to identify as-you do you. Or someone else-WITH CONSENT!
TO THE GAME!
-Cousins didn’t blow chunks last week! The score aside, that was the biggest upset.
-That damn Adam Thielen ratted someone out earlier this week and is now questionable with stitches. I’m sure he’ll play but are we gonna have another “Bloody Sock” game? Will he become a right-wing nutbar after retirement? It’s too early to tell but some of the signs are there.
-Kyle Rudolf was the overtime hero last week but he’ll have some trouble versus a San Fran D that gave up but one score to the tight end position all year.
-Increasing the level of Vikes woe is the matter of lb Kwon Alexander returning from IR. Opponents pass success rate climbed to 49% while he was out. When he’s on the field that stat dips to 38%.
-Kwon and fellow lb Fred Warner defend the middle of the field very well which will force Cousins to pass to the outside which is not a strength of his. So as per usual, it’ll be up to rb Cook to pull the O out of the frying pan and into the win column.
-Before last week Minny’s record against winning teams was 1-4.
-Prediction Time! A nearly fully healthy, rested and motivated San Franny D will be the difference-Niners win 26-17.
