The San Francisco 49ers improved to 1-1 on the season on Sunday Youth Mike Person jersey , defeating the Detroit Lions by a final score of 30-27. Week 2 comes to a close later tonight when the Chicago Bears host the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football.MNF is a huge game, and really this week was a huge one for any team that opened the season 0-1. Entering Week 2, we regularly heard the stat about 0-2 teams not making the playoffs. Something like 90 percent of teams that start the regular season 0-2 do not make the playoffs. The Seahawks and Bears both lost last week, so the loser of Monday Night Football gets to fall into that category.In reality, the stat is kind of bogus for purposes of discussion. Most teams that start 0-2 are not good football teams, and when a good team stumbles out of the gate, they’ve likely got better than 10 percent odds of making the playoffs. And yet, it is still something worth tracking because, why not?There are six teams that now sit at 0-2 following Sunday’s contests: Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-adrian-colbert-jersey , Buffalo Bills. Barring a tie, either the Seahawks or Bears will join this list.Meanwhile, the list of 2-0 teams features a mix of expected and unexpected teams. On the one hand, the Kansas Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Rams make sense. The Denver Broncos are not entirely shocking given their schedule to open the season, and the same holds true for the Cincinnati Bengals. The Kansas City Chiefs seem a spot below that, unless you were big on Patrick Mahomes.That leaves us with the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Dolphins beat the Tennessee Titans at home and then beat the New York Jets on the road. Neither were gimmes, but they were not shocking wins. The Bucs, on the other hand, are a whole different beast. They went into the Big Easy and beat the New Orleans Saints in a shootout, and then welcomed the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles with a victory. How for real are the Bucs?Our 49ers sit at 1-1, a game back of the Rams in the NFC West. I am fascinated to see what comes of tonight’s Seahawks-Bears game. I am picking the Bears to win and cover the 4.5 point spread, in part because I think their defensive front will decimate that Seahawks offensive line. Of course, underdogs were 10-4 against the spread on Sunday Brock Coyle jersey , so I would not be at all surprised to see the Seahawks go on the road and knock off the Bears. Chicago could have a great defense this year, but they still have a second-year quarterback facing a lot of questions. But a 1-1 Seahawks team is a lot different than an 0-2 Seahawks squad in my mind.Live updates from Kyle Shanahan’s Week 2 Monday wrap-up press conference The San Francisco 49ers beat the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon, holding them off to get in the win column in Week 2. The 49ers looked like they were going to roll through Detroit, holding a 30-13 at one point. Instead, things went south and it took a desperate last defensive hold to secure a 30-27 victory.The team travels east this coming weekend to face a Kansas City Chiefs squad that is operating the hottest offense in the league. Patrick Mahomes is breaking records, and nobody can figure out how to consistently stop him and Tyreek Hill. Even with the Chiefs defense struggling on its own, this game represents a tough challenge for the 49ers. Monday is a day to wrap up the previous day’s game and begin preparations for the coming week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan will meet with the media at 4 p.m. PT to discuss all that. The team seemed to get out of their Week 2 win relatively healthy, but we’ll be looking for an update on Jaquiski Tartt’s status after he injured his shoulder later in the game. The 49ers will stream the press conferences Twitter, Facebook, and the team’s app. The 49ers beat writers will also have updates from the media sessions. I’ve embedded our beat writer Twitter list so you can follow along. We’ll have a transcript later today.A Twitter List by NinersNation
