Instead of the knockout, drag out fight expected of this match-up of NFL heavyweights, the Texans had no answer for the 49ers on Sunday Night. With their defense and running game leading the way, for the second straight week the 49ers dominated their opponent in an easy win.
It makes sense for the 49ers offense to make some changes after replacing Alex Smith, this not yet. Colin Kaepernick is a completely different player with a different skill set, but with questions surrounding the passing game, the running game, for now, is still the team’s bread and butter. With a full stable of backs, the coaches need to commit to the run, and worry about the passing game when they get back all their pieces.
The Houston Texans will face their second NFC West opponent in as many weeks, when they travel to Candlestick to take on the 49ers Sunday Night. Both teams are desperate for a win, have playoff aspirations, and with plenty of playmakers on both sides of the ball, this one has all the ingredients for an entertaining game.
After scoring 10 points in the past two games combined, the 49er offense finally woke up. Frank Gore and Anquan Boldin lead the way as San Francisco snapped their first losing streak under Jim Harbaugh, exacting revenge on a St. Louis team that had the 49ers number last season.
Despite the multitude of issues surrounding the 49ers, they will still have the better team on the field Thursday Night, and if they play like they can, they will snap their first losing streak under Jim Harbaugh as well as their losing streak to the St. Louis Rams.
San Francisco welcomes second year sensation Andrew Luck to Candlestick in this Week 3 match up. After leading the Colts to the playoffs as a rookie, Luck is back in his second year to show that he is the real deal. He has weapons around him on offense and a respectable defense, but there is no secret that he is the heart and soul of this team, and they key to their success week in and week out.
Super Bowl 47 may be the final game for Ray Lewis, but the 49ers have several players who will approach the game with the same mentality. If Baltimore thinks that Ray Lewis’ dramatic return to the field will allow the Ravens to play at the level that has allowed them to get this far, they had better look to the other sideline and what the 49ers are playing for. San Francisco is the hungrier team and playing for far more than their opponent.
The Super Bowl is suppose to be the best two teams in the NFL battling for football supremacy as well as bragging rights. While there may be questions as to if the two best teams from each conference are playing, there is no denying the talented filling both rosters. In a game with so many Pro Bowlers on the field, it’s often an unlikely hero that can help swing the outcome of the game in their team’s favor. There are several players who can make a name for themselves on Super Bowl Sunday, but the player most likely to do so, is LaMichael James.
The San Francisco 49ers running back was fined $10,500 by the NFL on Wednesday after he wore his socks too low in Sunday’s NFC championship game at Atlanta, a uniform violation. It marked the second time he was fined this season.
In a game where the momentum switched hands several times, the 49ers were able to make one more play than the Falcons and will represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. San Francisco bounced back from a slow start, and in the end, outplayed the home team. The 49ers have earned themselves a trip to New Orleans, where they will look to reach the pinnacle of the sport.
When the New York Giants beat San Francisco last year in the NFC Championship Game, it was the 49ers’ inability to make a big play offensively that was a big reason for the loss. The team used the off season to address this problem, and as they find themselves one win away from the Super Bowl, the offense looks nothing like the one that let them down in this very game a year ago.
