Browns lead Chargers at halftime and that’s good for the 49ers

Dec 24, 2016 at 11:32 AM--


The league's worst team (as far as records go) is currently in the lead and that's good news for the 1-13 San Francisco 49ers. At halftime, the Cleveland Browns (0-14) are up 17-10 on the visiting San Diego Chargers.

Why is that important to the 49ers? Should the Browns win the game, they would have the same record as the 49ers – assuming San Francisco loses today against the Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers would then take over the top spot in the projected order for the 2017 NFL Draft due to a weaker strength of schedule.

Of course, there is still an entire half for the Browns to fall apart and it is entirely possible that the 49ers beat the Rams in Los Angeles today. Should that happen, the 49ers would remain at the number two spot due to a weaker strength of schedule than the Jacksonville Jaguars, who currently sit at the number three spot.

Not that it impacts the 49ers' draft spot this week, but those Jaguars are currently leading the Tennessee Titans.

The Rams are 4.5-point favorites against the 49ers today and kickoff is at 1:25 p.m. PT.

Quarterback Nick Mullens could get his ninth NFL start on Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers visit the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Starter Jimmy Garoppolo will not practice today and is a longshot to play after suffering a high-ankle sprain this past weekend against the New York Jets. "I would be surprised if Jimmy gets back later in the week," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters. "I know he's still pulling to do it. But Nick's ready to go, and if something happens to Nick, C.J. (Beathard) will be ready to go. "Nick's got a lot of playing time with us. 2018 prepared him for moments like this. He always does a good job in practice, and I'm excited to see him get his opportunity." The 49ers coach was asked how much Mullens has developed

Fans were awaiting word on the status of San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, who appeared to suffer a leg injury before halftime during Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Kittle ended up playing in the second half but was held without a catch after his injury. It sounds like Kittle, at least in his mind, plans to play in Sunday's road game against the New York Jets as the 49ers try to get into the win column. "Good to go," Kittle texted Mike Silver of NFL Network. "On to New York!" That's some positive news, assuming the 49ers medical and coaching staffs feel the same way. Fans probably remember that Kittle suffered
