In the AFC, one of them will be without a Gronk and the other will be without a Billy Cundiff. Hopefully Justin Tucker can step up for requisite shanking duties in critical situations.
Jacoby Arthur Jones and Chandler Jones are brothers. No doubt that will get more play than whatever dance Ray Lewis plans to do after jumping on Aaron Hernandez after a 20-yard gain.
Even if the 49ers are a repeat conference title team, they’re a repeat team with a new and exciting quarterback. Atlanta finally shook their reliable playoff failure reputation, so they’ll be ready to #RiseUp and build a lead they can’t be trusted to hold for a half. Also, running on San Francisco isn’t as easy as it is on Seattle without Chris Clemons. That means we get to find out just how super elite Matt Ryan is in crunch time. Should be fun.
