49ers are the NFL’s last remaining undefeated team after Ravens beat Patriots

Nov 3, 2019 at 8:21 PM--

And then there was one.

The San Francisco 49ers entered Week 9 as one of two remaining undefeated teams left the NFL. They exited Thursday night's clash with the Arizona Cardinals boasting an 8-0 record.

Now, they stand alone as the NFL's only perfect team.

That's because the Baltimore Ravens (6-2) were able to do what seven teams (the Jets have played New England twice) before them have been unable to accomplish — knock off the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots (8-1). The Ravens, just three-point underdogs heading into Sunday night's matchup, won the home game by a score of 37-20.

The 49ers begin the second half of their schedule, which is considered to be significantly more difficult, with a Monday night matchup at Levi's Stadium against the Seattle Seahawks on November 11 (find tickets). They also host the Green Bay Packers and Los Angeles Rams, and travel for games against the Ravens, New Orleans Saints, and Seahawks during the weeks leading to the end of the regular season.

San Francisco will also be getting several injured players back in the coming weeks, with November 11 returns likely for most (maybe all). Those players are both starting tackles, Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey, fullback Kyle Juszczyk, and cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon.

Of course, the team found out this past week that starting linebacker Kwon Alexander has been lost for the year due to a torn pectoral muscle.

It will be interesting to see how the Patriots' first loss of the season impacts power rankings and media perception during the coming week. New England has been the consensus No. 1 ranked team for the entire season. The 49ers have managed to climb into the top 3 in most power rankings.

Two 49ers beat writers predict the same seven receivers to earn roster spots

Two writers for The Athletic, Matt Barrows and David Lombardi, recently took a shot at predicting the San Francisco 49ers' 53-man roster. That's not an easy task, given the unusual circumstances surrounding the offseason. NFL players haven't even practiced together in an official capacity. Although, that will happen soon, thanks to a recent agreement between the league and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA). Training camps will begin next week, once players undergo two separate COVID-19 tests. The first couple of weeks will focus on strength and conditioning and walk-throughs. Players will finally put on helmets on the 18th day and then pads on the

Two 49ers beat writers high on Jerick McKinnon's chances to contribute in 2020

San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon reworked his once-hefty contract to remain with the team and prove he can be the player head coach Kyle Shanahan envisioned. San Francisco signed McKinnon in 2018 but the running back has yet to take a regular-season snap with the team. Shanahan once envisioned a weapon in the backfield who was just as dangerous catching the football as he was carrying it. The coach may still be hoping for that, but after two seasons on injured reserve, getting anything out of his one-time prized offseason acquisition might be a bonus for a running back group that already features Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman. Two 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers have moved up a spot in Forbes' ranking of the most valuable NFL teams. The list of the most valuable sports teams was released on Friday, and the 49ers came in at No. 12 with an estimated value of $3.5 million and were the fifth-highest ranked NFL franchise. The team's worth is up from $3.05 billion last year. The 49ers were purchased in 1977 for $13 million. That's quite a profit on the investment. The Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, New York Giants, and Los Angeles Rams are the only NFL teams valued higher than the 49ers. San Francisco surpassed the Washington Football Team, which fell to No. 7 among NFL
