When the San Diego Chargers went into Denver last month and beat the Broncos, no doubt some eyebrows were raised. Now, imagine if they do it again this Sunday.
The Colts and Broncos have already secured a playoff spot, with others offered the chance this weekend if all breaks right. The question is, which team will win the AFC Championship this year?
Madden said Denver, Seattle and Kansas City have all scored big in the free agency scramble.
In the waning seconds of Super Bowl XLVII with the Ravens leading the 49ers 34-31, quarterback Joe Flacco had an idea: if San Francisco return man Ted Ginn looked like he was going to take the ensuing kick for a game-deciding touchdown, Flacco suggested aloud to teammates to “go tackle him.”
There were only seven penalties called in the Super Bowl Sunday, despite other obvious infractions. “Did someone see (a penalty) and not call it, or did the official not see it,” Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
“Right now they’re one of the best or the best offensive line in football,” Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
John Madden said he expected better efforts by both defenses in Baltimore’s 34-31 victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.
“This is a great match-up,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew. But he likes the 49ers in Sunday’s Super Bowl.
If the 49ers are to beat the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII, it will take a team effort. The Ravens play for the guy next to them, and will be a problem not only for the talent they have on the field, but also for the bond that holds them together. It’s a good thing the 49ers have played as one unit all year and will be entering the Super Bowl the better team, and clicking on both sides of the ball.
Super Bowl has a pair of fresh faces at quarterback, bona fide nobodies as far as the NFL title game goes. One will leave New Orleans as football’s newest star.
