There were three football teams representing the Golden State in the NFL Super Wildcard Playoffs over the weekend. The Los Angeles Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, and Los Angeles Rams all competed thereby officially beginning their quest for a Super Bowl berth. San Diego couldn’t get it because they have a coach who thought going for it on 4th down when they had their backs against their own end zone was a winning strategy. Personally, I think I’m on the #firebrandonstaley bandwagon, for sure. Thankfully, San Francisco and Los Angeles were successful and are set to represent Northern and Southern California this weekend.
Both teams are on the road this weekend. Saturday, S.F. travels to chilly Green Bay to square off against the number 1 seeded Aaron Rogers and the Packers. That game is set to start at 5:15pm Pacific Standard Time. Sunday, L.A. travels to balmy Tampa Bay to square off against the number 1 seeded Tom Brady and Buccaneers. That game is set to start at 12noon Pacific Standard Time. The winners of those games advance to the NFC and AFC championships respectively.
I’m so excited. Are you?
