George Kittle is just out here having fun. The quirky tight end gave one hell of a postgame interview following San Francisco’s win over Dallas in the NFC Divisional Round game on Sunday.
All Kittle had to do was blurt out a goofy giggle to send Twitter into a tizzy. It was a pretty fitting response from one of the most entertaining players in the league.
“You gonna go have fun now?” asked sideline reporter Erin Andrews. Kittle responded with a “hee hee, yes,” before scurrying away.
Talk about TV magic. It’s always fun to see players show a goofier side. Kittle has never had much of a problem with that.
Kittle finished Sunday’s game with five catches for 95 yards, including a long of 31. After the 19-12 win, the 49ers will take on the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.
Kickoff will be 3 p.m. ET on FOX.
Along with George Kittle, Jerry Rice Also Caught Attention
George Kittle’s postgame shenanigans weren’t the only thing to captivate social media on Sunday night. One of the best receivers in NFL history also mesmerized the audience with his incredible accessories.
San Francisco legend Jerry Rice sported an incredible San Francisco 49ers helmet necklace for Sunday’s Divisional Round playoff game against the Cowboys. But that wasn’t the best part.
On the back of this miniature (yet still pretty large) helmet read, “GOAT.” That’s a legend leaning into his status, and everyone loved it.
Rice played for the 49ers from 1985 through 2000. He was a three-time Super Bowl champion, a two-time NFL Offensive Player of the Year, a six-time receiving yards leader and a 13-time Pro Bowl selection.
To this day, many still consider Rice to be the greatest receiver to ever play the game. So, yeah, the “GOAT” on the helmet truly fits.
