Golden Nuggets: Any Given Sunday

Monday, November 10, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Someone out there must have been wishing for a little dose of crazy, because that is exactly what we got from the 49ers thrilling OT victory against the Saints. In addition, we also got extra helpings of revenge, irony, heartburn, and lots of hair-pulling. Pulling out some hair and a season-saving road win is what San Francisco did behind big plays by Antoine Bethea, Ahmad Brooks, Chris Borland, Colin Kaepernick and his receivers.

If there was even a trace of doubt that this team was out of magic, then that thought can return to the back of your mind again. This game is just a good reminder of how entertaining the NFL is. On any given Sunday, any team can win over any other. As Coach Harbaugh said in his presser after the game,

"Anything can happen. Anything happens all the time."

I'm not sure if that can be considered a Harbaughism, but it accurately describes what took place against the Saints.
