The 49ers go on the road for the second straight week, but this time the opponent should not be quite as difficult. If they can play as well as they did a week ago the 49ers will beat the Giants this week and keep their winning streak intact.
The 49ers knew that this week was going to be a tough test. The Saints were on a roll and at home, but San Francisco played well in all phases and survived an overtime thriller.
San Francisco had a chance late, but couldn’t get the job done, losing to St. Louis. It was the same story after a 49er loss where most of the team played a role. This time around though it was no fault of the defense.
The 49ers played one of the AFC’s best and lost big. They played an elite team and didn’t play well, so San Francisco was blown out. However, it’s just one loss and one that is no surprise at the end of the day.
After falling behind early, the 49ers responded and beat the St. Louis Rams. The offense, defense and special teams all got involved in this latest win.
The 49ers are hoping to get to their bye week with no more injuries. They continue to get healthier and only figure to be without 2 starters this week. The Rams are not much worse, but if without all 3of their injured players could find themselves short handed for this one.
Colin Kaepernick threw for 201 yards and a touchdown, Frank Gore ran for 107 yards and the San Francisco 49ers converted a fake punt to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-17 on Sunday.
San Francisco will be without Vernon Davis and Anthony Davis when they take on the Chiefs this Sunday. Kansas City will also be without at least one starter, and has several others dealing with some sort of injury. Neither team will be seriously undermanned for this pivotal matchup though.
When the 49ers play a solid game as a team they are tough to beat. They took on an undefeated Eagles team and if not for 49er mistakes, would have blown out the road team. Even with several early mistakes, the 49ers rebounded and earned a hard fought win over a serious playoff contender.
Frank Gore caught a career-best 55-yard touchdown and ran for 119 yards in his first 100-yard game this year, leading the San Francisco 49ers past Philadelphia 26-21 on Sunday to hand the Eagles their first loss.
It’s hard to win when you play like the 49ers did Sunday Night. When you get called for 13 penalties and commit 4 turnovers its hard to win in the NFL. They still outplayed Chicago and had a chance late to win, but fell short.
Seattle and San Francisco have each won their home game against each other. With the rubber match taking place at CenturyLink Field, which game will be played? The blowout 29-3 Seattle win in Week 2 or the 19-17 gritty win by the 49ers in Week 14?
