The 2017 NFL playoffs are underway, and I learned something rather interesting today. The start of the playoffs is always a time for a viewing of Jim Mora’s epic rant about the playoffs and his then struggling Indianapolis Colts.
I remember the rant, but I did not remember much else about it. Turns out, the rant came after a 40-21 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers entered the game 7-2 on a three-game win streak, while the Colts were 4-5 and had lost two straight. The most random thing about the 49ers heading into that game? They had already played four overtime games, with OT wins over the Panthers and two against the Falcons, and an OT loss to the Chicago Bears. That doesn’t mean much of anything, but I find it interesting.
But anyway, there you have it. Another piece of history connected to the 49ers!
