There are two undefeated teams left in the NFL, but it’s usually the New England Patriots picking up the majority of the headlines due to their elite defense, but many seem to be sleeping on the also-undefeated San Francisco 49ers.
The Niners defense ranks right up there with the Patriots in many statistical categories, allowing just 901 passing yards, with 10 interceptions and just five touchdowns surrendered through seven games played.
Not everyone is impressed with the job the team’s pass defense, and that includes Tyrann Mathieu.
Responding to an impressive San Francisco stat from longtime front office executive Gil Brandt, the Chiefs defensive back questioned San Francisco’s schedule.
Not exactly a disrespectful question seeing as how the 49ers have beaten teams with a combined 15-30 record, and that’s not including the Thursday Night game against the Arizona Cardinals who are 3-4-1.
San Francisco’s two most impressive wins have come against the Rams and Panthers, have come by a combined score of 71-20.
After facing the Cards, the 49ers will have a real test when they face the Seahawks (6-2), Packers (7-1), Ravens (5-2) and Saints (7-1) in the next coming weeks.
