Welcome to another Sunday where the 49ers do not play football. This week it’s a bye, so we aren’t getting any more prime time shenanigans out of it, but that again lets us watch the rest of the league that is the NFL.
We actually have some intriguing matchups this time around. The big one is the Monday night contest between the Los Angeles Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs. It got moved out of Mexico due to field conditions, but I’m anxious to see how this game turns out.
Beyond that, the Sunday night game with the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears should be all sorts of fun. Since getting Khalil Mack, the Bears defense (ran by Vic Fangio, who used to coordinate a filthy 49ers D) has been the league’s best and a return to form.
For the games in the afternoon, I’m strangely interested in Oakland Raiders vs. Arizona Cardinals, for no reason than to see if Arizona can punk Oakland or if Oakland can pull out a win. The Washington/Houston Texas game looks intriguing as well as both teams appear level in ability.
