    I don't care what anyone says, Mahomes is bay far the most talented QB in the NFL right now.

    Rogers v Garropolo next week will be interesting for sure.

    Can the Titans get some stops on Mahomes and the KC offense?

    Intriguing matchups.

    Wow. Didn't expect the Seahawks to beat the Packers, especially at Green Bay, but it was a close-run thing.

    Biggest shock is the Ravens going out to the Titans, I had Baltimore as nailed on finalists!

    Props to the Chiefs for a stunning victory, to come back from so far down and stick 51 points on the board is the stuff of movie scripts.

    Packers v 49ers and Chiefs vs Titans, I'll have to stick with the 49ers but glad I'm not a betting man!

    Come on 49ers, last chance to prevent the insufferable packers from reaching the super bowl.

    I'm rooting for the titans to win the whole thing though, that would be great.

    The only team left who I don’t have some sort of dislike of is the Chiefs so hopefully they can win it

    I do like the offense aggresive 4th down play calling.

    Mahomes is a 27 yard touchdown RUN <yikes>

    This KC team just goes end to end in about 90 seconds. Even keeping them off the field for long periods doesn’t seem to be working. One HOT offence.

    Yeah only chance Titans have is to keep running Henry and get a turnover or 2, and probably still need to score 40+. Basically everything has to go right to beat this Chiefs O.

    ****ing Packers later, no idea how they've managed to get to the NFC Champ game, they are so average besides Rodgers.

    Titans need a turn-over or it's over.

    So chuffed right now. This Franchise deserves another Lombardi and so does Reid.

    We played the Titans at their own game today, ran the ball kept them and Henry off the field.

    Honey Badger and Frank Clark making plays too. This D is so underrated.

    Green Bay sending themselves packing, does that count as a fumble?

    Packers destroyed as expected. The best O against the best D in the Superbowl then, on paper looks good. I can't see how any team can stop the Chiefs O enough to hang in the game but as they say "Defences win Championships" so looking forward to it. The Niners pass rush is ridiculous which is something the Titans didn't have at all last night, and Mahomes could scramble about and had loads of time to launch the ball, which I can't see him being able to do as effectively against San Francisco.

    Looking ahead to FA and trade rumours, I hope like **** the Vikings trade Dalvin Cook, let Griffen, Rhodes and Reiff walk and get some Defensive Tackle/O-line/Corner help in FA and the draft. They won't though and will probably **** it right up by giving Cook a monster contract. What do you think @PompeyLapras

    Some good observations.

    The Chiefs D is also decent and underrated. Held King Henry to 69 yards yesterday.

    Chiefs have so many weapons in the Offence. Really looking forward to seeing how Niners deal with the multi threat.

    If they double team Kelce they will go to Hill and vice versa. Mahomes has also shown he can go to others to make big plays (as Watkins did yesterday).

    This Super Bowl can go either way, it's too close to call for me.

    I actually think the Chiefs will win pretty comfortably. As you say the Chiefs D isn't as bad as people make out, the Niners O isn't really that great (if they can stop Henry they should be able to deal with Niners running game). And I just can't not see the Chiefs scoring a few touchdowns in any game.

    The only way my novice football brain can think of to win is to pressure Mahomes regularly and double team Kelce. From what I've seen of the Chiefs, Hill and Watkins are more deep threats, if you get to Mahomes before those guys can get downfield and open he has to checkdown, which would usually be Kelce. If you double team him then he will have to start taking risks and you may force a couple of turnovers.

    Obviously a lot easier said than done but if any team could be succesful with that game plan it is the Niners with their D-Line. Should be interesting but ultimately a "bad" day at the office for the Chiefs is scoring about 25 points which probably would be enough to win the game anyway.

    As long as neither team has a centre that wants to stick the ball up his own ass on the snap, they should be ok.

    Over 53.5, and Chiefs by a few. Tyreek Hill to rack up a lot of yards and probably a lot of points.
