NFL.com projects 49ers’ 2020 ceiling at 14 wins, floor at 8-8

Jul 29, 2020 at 2:58 PM--


NFL.com projects the San Francisco 49ers to finish the 2020 season—assuming a full season is played—with a 12-4 record, once again winning the NFC West.

The predicted losses will come at home in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles, Week 8 on the road against the Seattle Seahawks, on the road in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams, and another road defeat in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.

The 49ers have much of the same personnel, both among the players and coaching staff, returning from their Super Bowl run. The key losses include defensive tackle DeForest Buckner and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, both of whom were replaced with rookies. San Francisco replaced standout offensive tackle Joe Staley, who retired, with seven-time Pro Bowl selection Trent Williams.

If there is a Super Bowl hangover, though, NFL.com can envision the 49ers adding four more losses against teams like the Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, and Dallas Cowboys. That would put the team's projected floor at 8-8.

"But too much of the personnel is back for that to happen," notes NFL.com. "And if they are hungry to finish the job, and the rookies come close to filling those shoes, add a win over Philly at home, and sweep the Rams to go 14-2. This would say a lot about Shanahan, who already has a lot of nice things being said about him."

The 49ers are scheduled to kick off the regular season against the Cardinals at Levi's Stadium on September 13.

The San Francisco 49ers were the lone NFC West squad that failed to win its 2020 opener. Kyle Shanahan's team lost 24-20 to the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. Earlier on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Atlanta Falcons 38-25. Later, the Los Angeles Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys 20-17 in the first game at SoFi Stadium — albeit without fans to watch. That means the 49ers start their 2020 season, which the team was so eager to begin as it attempts to make amends from February's Super Bowl loss, in last place within the NFC West.

49ers tried to tune out unique challenges of 2020 in Week 1 loss

2020, as everyone knows, has been an utterly horrible year for much of humanity. And on Sunday, during their Week 1 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the San Francisco 49ers had to deal with the unusual circumstances the events of 2020 are presenting to NFL teams and found them to be quite noticeable, even if they weren't to blame for what went wrong in the game. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 49ers played their home opener Sunday in front of an empty stadium with piped-in crowd noise and socially distanced cheerleaders wearing masks. Sunday also marked their first time playing any sort of game during the 2020 season due to the fact that COVID-19 caused the NFL to cancel every game on the preseason schedule. To make matters worse, the 49ers had to continue to deal
