    Did the 49ers look that good or did the Packers just look that bad? There will be a real test next week against the red-hot Ravens. Speaking of which, were the Ravens that good or were the Rams just that bad on Monday night?

    I went to the Niners game and had a great time. The fans were very much into it more so than I have seen in several years. Winning does that.

    I think it was a combination of the Niners playing well and the Packers not executing. I didn’t expect that from the Packers. With a banged up offensive line and a strong rush from the Niners the Packers tried to rely on quick short passes for the most part. That didn’t work. The Niners kept a good balance between run and pass plays and hit on a couple of chunk plays to Kittle and Samuel.

    Baltimore is going to be a tough game, especially playing them back east. I hope we play well in bad conditions and can pull it out. I think they need to put a spy focused solely on Jackson. He is a game changer.

    The Rams? Glad to see it. Their offensive line is in bad shape and Goff is coming back down to earth after a great year last year. It shows how hard it is to sustain a high level of success in the NFL. The Patriots seem to be the exception.

    Best regards.

    I will give three (3) points to the Raven to win, if it is below 32 degrees on game day.

    An amazing stat on the Sunday Night Football broadcast earlier this week with the 49ers-Packers: Al Michaels said that the Niners' three-game stretch vs. Packers, Ravens, and Saints is the first time in the Super Bowl era (more than 50 years) that any team has had to face three teams back-to-back-to-back with winning percentages of .800 or higher (having played 10 games or more in their season). Amazing. It may be how the schedule falls, but it doesn't make it any easier. If the Niners can come through this brutal stretch winning two of three, that will be a great accomplishment.

    Agreed. As much as I would love to see them beat the Ravens and Saints it will be more important to beat the Saints as that would be a tie breaker if they end up tied with them. This is going to be very fun to watch.

    Best regards.

    Very tough loss in terrible conditions for the Good Guys, but I'm encouraged, despite the loss. Lamar Jackson is incredibly talented, and the Niners' defense did an admirable job keeping him bottled up for most of the game. I like the Niners' chances if they happen to get a re-match on a neutral field (and yes, there's only scenario under which that happens!).

    One observation: the Niners' two losses this season have occurred on game-ending field goals by the Seahawks and the Ravens--after the Niners' kickers had blown earlier field goal attempts. The 49ers' clear weakness is their kicking game, and it has cost them dearly this year.

    It doesn't get easier this coming Sunday in NOLA. Go Niners!!

    The Forty Niners are an excellent football team. Their only two (2) losses have come against teams with winning records (Seahawks and the Raven). IMHO.

    The Seahawks and the 49ers have the toughest final games schedule in the NFL this season’s.
    IMHO.

    That's what happens when you play in a division as strong as the NFC West is this year, and the divisional rotations exclude the weaker divisions. Kind of like the obverse of the Patriots, who have had the good fortune of generally having at most one competitive team in their division.

    Consider that the Cardinals might not be nearly as bad as their record. They just have six games with Hawks, Niners, and Rams. Then, their rotational schedules have put them up against Saints, Ravens, Steelers.

    Those Forty Niners just beat the New Orleans Saints 48 to 46 with a field goal with less than 20 seconds in the games. Those Forty Niners are for real.

    #1 Cowboys Fan, how can that be a fun game to watch and you are the #1 Cowboys Fan?
    The Cowboys Team are in a funk right now, with no offense, no defense and in need of a new Head Coach. LOL.

    The stretch the Niners just came through--Packers at home, Ravens and Saints on the road--is the toughest three-game stretch in the NFL in the Super Bowl era if you count the cumulative records of the three opponents. To come through that 2-1 is amazing. And with the help of the Rams tonight in their defeat of the Seahawks, the 49ers now claim sole possession of the #1 seed in the playoffs with three games to go. Unfortunately, it doesn't get easier. They will play Atlanta at home (which certainly could be a dreaded "trap" game), the Rams at home, and the Seahawks on the road in that hellhole called Century Link Field. If the 49ers only hold a one-game lead against Seattle going into that game, Seattle can still clinch the division title and a first-week bye if they win, as they have already beaten San Francisco once before this season. Wow...what a year. That Saints game will probably go down as the game of the year in the NFL. George Kittle's catch and run, with two NOLA defenders hanging on to his facemask, was epic. Go Niners!

    That game yesterday was a true shoot out and as it often does, it came down to who had the ball last. It was great to see Jimmy and the offense when the defense had a tough game. The upcoming games will be tough as Atlanta is unpredictable this year and is playing better lately, the Rams is a rivalry game as is Seattle. Fun times!

    Best regards.
