49ers And Bengals Underdogs Again

The 49ers shocked the NFL world by handing the Packers their first home loss of the season 13-10 and did so without scoring an offensive touchdown. San Francisco won in wintry conditions as +5.5 underdogs and around +200 on the moneyline. The #Faithful will be smaller road underdogs in the NFC Championship game.

In the AFC, the Bengals also overcame offensive deficiencies to knock off the other 1-seed, beating the Titans 19-16 despite Joe Burrow being sacked nine times. Unlike San Francisco though, Cincinnati will be even bigger underdogs in the AFC Championship game against a team at the top of most NFL playoff power ratings.
