Kyle Shanahan might have that Tony Romo syndrome where he can predict things are going to happen on the football field before they do.
The San Francisco 49ers head coach proved how smart he was when he told a referee that Green Bay Packers safety Will Redmond was going to commit defensive pass interference on a play going to George Kittle.
Just as he predicted, Will Redmond did just that as Kittle tried to run his route.
Instead of a third-down stop by Green Bay’s defense, which would have given them the ball back with a chance to make it a 10-point game, the 49ers kept the football and put the game away.
Attention to detail is why the 49ers are headed to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2012.
