NFL: Kittle close realising his 2020 vision

George Kittle is one win away from making good on his post-Super Bowl LIV vow that the San Francisco 49ers would be back in the big game "with a vengeance".

The Niners, 8/5 on the Money Line, head to SoFi Stadium for Sunday's NFC Championship game looking for a third win over the 5/9 Rams this season.

49ers eyeing Super Bowl return

And if they complete the trifecta, there's a good chance their opponents in Super Bowl LVI next month will be the same Kansas City Chiefs who beat them in Miami two years ago.

"It was really tough to lose that, especially with the team we had," 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa told reporters on Thursday, admitting the Super Bowl defeat to the Chiefs still motivates the team.

Kittle talks up belief

San Francisco kicker Robbie Gould has also recounted his memory of watching tight end Kittle issue his "I will be back here" speech in the closing moments of their 31-20 loss to the Chiefs, who scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter.

"I said those words because I believe in the fact, I believe in myself, and I believe in this football team, that we have an opportunity to get back to the Super Bowl," Kittle said on Thursday, via 49erswebzone.com.

"I believe in our coaching staff. It's a fantastic team, a great organization, a great owner.

"And I just believe in our ability to win games, and win tough games, win gritty games, to win blowout games, to bounce back from injuries, bounce back from losses, fight through adversity.

"And that's what this team, what this organization has done."
