The Chiefs' losses this year when Mahomes was under center:I think the Chiefs have the potential to beat the 49ers by two touchdowns if Mahomes goes into god mode.
With that said I think the 49ers defense is that good. I think if they can control the clock with the run game and keep Mahomes off the field as much as possible they will be in good shape. You can't shut Mahomes out, but you can do what you can to limit his damage. I also do think if need be they can go score for score and open the game up. I don't think they want to do that, but I think they can win in any way needed if it comes down to it.
I think Shanahan is going to draw up some fun things to move the ball in a couple weeks.
It's going to be a fun game, something has to give either way.
Indianapolis - 45 rushes, 180 yds
Houston - 41 rushes, 192 yds
Tennessee - 26 rushes, 225 yds
I'd love for Kyle Shanahan to let Jimmy G sling it all over too.
He's not Joe Flacco or Matt Hasselback, but I'd feel pretty good letting his 2:1 TD:INT ratio and 36 sacks decide the game.
