I think we can all agree that last night's victory was a statement for the 49ers, right?
I mean, a 20-3 win on Monday Night Football against one of the most consistently competitive teams of recent years has to count for something, even to those out there who still don't believe in this team.
But really, what sort of statement did they make?
Looking at this game objectively, there is quite a lot of surface information to be examined: historic defensive streaks, playoff seeding, injuries and more. However, when fitting this game into the overall arc of San Fransisco's season, this game may have bigger implications than most people realize.
Indeed, San Fransisco may have made a number of statements last night.
