The San Francisco 49ers were on the wrong end of some really bad luck in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Both of the 49ers' quarterbacks suffered injuries, making San Francisco's offense virtually useless for much of the game.

Not surprisingly, the 49ers couldn't keep up with the Eagles and got blown out, 31-7, falling one game short of the Super Bowl.

Nearly two weeks removed from the loss, several San Francisco players are still bitter about it. 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey was asked this week who he would rather see win the Super Bowl between the Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs, and he gave a very clear answer.

To nobody's surprise, McCaffrey won't be cheering for Philly in the big game. Or Kansas City, for that matter, but especially Philly.

McCaffrey was basically San Francisco's entire offense after Brock Purdy and Josh Johnson both got hurt, so that loss really had to sting for him, especially since he's yet to play in a Super Bowl.

While it's impossible for both teams to lose on Sunday, CMC may not get his wish about the Eagles losing. They're currently favored to beat the Chiefs by 1.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook's Super Bowl odds.
