It’s not easy being the supermom of two NFL stars. But Cheryl Bosa does.

This week’s puzzle. His sons, 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa and Los Angeles Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa, both have playoff games Saturday. However, time and distance are an issue with Nick in Santa Clara, where the 49ers host the Seattle Seahawks at 1:30 PM PT, and Joe on the opposite coast, facing the Jaguars in Jacksonville, Florida at 5:15 PM.

In the end, Mama Bossa had to make a decision about which game to attend.

“I was praying that I could make it to both of them,” Cheryl told Ashley Adamson and Lisa McCaffrey on the “Your Mom” ​​podcast. “Obviously I was unlucky this weekend. Hopefully I will next weekend.

“Joey has been hurt this year. I’ve been to some of his first games, the game where he went down and then he was out for 10 or 12 weeks. I went to his first game back, which was two weeks ago. I think it’s just a numbers game, you know? I have to be there for him.”

Joey recorded six tackles (two for loss), 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in the first two games of his seventh NFL season before going down in Week 3 with a groin injury. He sat out 13 straight games before returning in Week 17, and he still finished the season with the sixth-most sacks and tied for first on the Chargers.

“I was just with Nick, we went to dinner after the game on Sunday [against the Arizona Cardinals]Sherrill said. “And I just said. “Babe, I’m really sorry, but I’m going to go to Joe’s game,” and she’s like, “Absolutely, Mom.” “

While Joey was out, Nick made his case for NFL Defensive Player of the Year. He finished the season with a league-high 18.5 sacks, just one shy of Aldon Smith’s franchise single-season record of 19.5, set in 2012.

The 49ers are riding a 10-game postseason winning streak and will look to build on that so Mama Bosa can cheer on the DPOY leader next week at Levi’s Stadium.
