49ers RB Matt Breida on possible Super Bowl vs. Patriots: 'I like our chances'

49ers RB Matt Breida on possible Super Bowl vs. Patriots: 'I like our chances'

The New England Patriots (6-0) and San Francisco 49ers (5-0) are the only two undefeated teams remaining, so predictably there's already talk of a potential Super Bowl matchup between the two squads.

One thing is for certain: the 49ers aren't lacking confidence as they cruise into Week 7 of the 2019 season. Niners running back Matt Breida made that clear Tuesday night on NFL Total Access when asked how he'd feel about lining up against the defending champion Patriots in Super Bowl 54.

"I feel like I like our chances," Breida told Scott Hanson. "We have a great team, great special teams, offense, defense, and everyone's playing at high energy right now. So we'll just have to wait and see."

Watch below:

Given how dominant the 49ers have looked up to this point, it's no surprise they feel they can go toe-to-toe with any team in the league. Like the Patriots, their defense has been spectacular ranking at or near the top in almost every major statistical category. Offensively, Breida and fellow RBs Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert have helped San Francisco establish one of the NFL's best rushing attacks.

Of course, with 10 weeks of regular-season football left on the schedule, it's still far too early to be looking ahead to February. But we have to admit, a Tom Brady vs. Jimmy Garoppolo Super Bowl matchup sounds pretty exciting.

Patriots rookie Chase Winovich surprises his mother with new car

Patriots rookie Chase Winovich surprises his mother with new car

Chase Winovich once promised his mother he'd buy her a new car. On Wednesday, he followed through with that promise.

The New England Patriots rookie bought his mom a 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata and showed it off on his Instagram.

Winovich also included a video of his mother's reaction to the big surprise, along with a caption that reads, "I can never repay you, but here’s a start. I love you mom."

Take a look below (click arrow to watch video).

Back in early October, Winovich was fined $7,000 for throwing the ball into the stands after scoring his first NFL touchdown. The 24-year-old defensive end wrote a message to his mom apologizing.

"Sorry mom for launching that new car I promised you into the stratosphere during my celebration! Love you!" he wrote.

Looks like that little mishap only delayed the purchase one month.

Winovich is excelling in his first year as a pro. The Patriots' third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft has 4.5 sacks and 14 tackles through his first 10 games.

Finally being able to pay back his mother, of course, is his best highlight yet.

Report: Antonio Brown countersuing his first accuser, Britney Taylor

Report: Antonio Brown countersuing his first accuser, Britney Taylor

It looks like the next chapter of the Antonio Brown saga is going to be taking place in court.

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Brown is filing a countersuit against Britney Taylor alleging "defamation" and "interference with his NFL contracts and endorsements."

Taylor accused Brown of sexual assault earlier this year. Brown was released by the Patriots about a week and a half after those allegations surfaced and he has remained unsigned since that time.

Brown recently met with the NFL to discuss Taylor's allegations, but no decision regarding his status has been made. 

That said, Brown is reportedly optimistic that he will play against in 2019.

Over the course of the past couple days, Brown has had his name resurface in connection to the New England Patriots.

It all started when Brown apologized to Patriots owner Robert Kraft in an Instagram post where Brown said he was sorry for "the bad media and the drama" that he brought to the Patriots. Tom Brady liked Brown's post and that started a discussion about whether Brady would want Brown to return to the team.

Brady and Bill Belichick both avoided talking much about Brown's apology in press conferences on Wednesday.

While the Patriots could use Brown's talent -- especially as they deal with injuries to receivers Mohamed Sanu and Phillip Dorsett -- it seems unlikely that they'll welcome him back to the team amid all of his legal trouble.
