San Francisco 49ers
Refer to this travel guide when attending the San Francisco 49ers home game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thanksgiving.
It has been said that Aldon Smith’s suspension was not reduced because he didn’t comply with all the requirements of his suspension. But both he and the NFLPA disagree, and they appear to be the ones who are right.
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.
10 weeks into the season and the Saints and 49ers are relatively healthy. Both are dealing with injuries and could miss some players, but all in all will be full strength. The only real question for the 49ers is if Patrick Willis will play.
There is no reason for the 49ers to panic despite their 4-4 record. There is a big difference between 5-4 and 4-5 so a win this week should silence the panic talks. A loss though will certainly warrant a raise in concern.
The 49ers hit the road this week to take on the New Orleans Saints. New Orleans started slow but has turned it around and will look to keep their winning streak alive. San Francisco has lost two straight and face a must win.
The Denver Broncos are coming off a loss, and that means bad news for the winless Oakland Raiders. Peyton Manning loves to dissect a bad defense, and that’s what he’s prepping to do right now—leaving the Silver & Black on the spot for Sunday’s game at the Coliseum against the defending AFC champs.
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.
First up for the 49ers after their bye is the St. Louis Rams. After beating them less than a month ago, San Francisco should have no problems doing it again in front of their own home crowd.
