Bills open as 2.5-point favorites over 49ers in Week 13 matchup

Dec 1, 2020 at 5:59 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers kept their playoff hopes alive with a 23-20 upset victory over the division-rival and former division-leading Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Now, they will host the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football.

Of course, the game won't be at Levi's Stadium, as Santa Clara County has banned contact sports in the area due to growing COVID-19 numbers. Instead, the 49ers have found refuge in the desert, and for at least the next couple of weeks, will call State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona home.

The 49ers can increase their playoff chances by going on a run in these final five games of the season. That will mean overcoming the odds once again and knocking off the AFC East-leading Bills.

According to MyBookie, the Bills opened as 2.5-point favorites (O/U 48.5) over the 49ers in the upcoming matchup at State Farm Stadium. Buffalo is coming off a 27-17 home victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.

San Francisco still sits in last place within the NFC West standings, but its win over Los Angeles and an Arizona Cardinals loss in Week 12 closed the gap. The Seattle Seahawks, of course, remain in the top spot at 8-3.

The 49ers and Bills are scheduled to kick off on Monday at 5:15 p.m. PT.

49ers glad 2020 season is finally over

Like so many around the world, the way the San Francisco 49ers reacted to the end of 2020 can be summed up in one word -- relief. Of course, things got quite unusual for the 49ers towards the end of 2020, given the fact the team had to live in a hotel in Arizona for over a month in order to finish its season after local COVID-19 ordinances in Santa Clara shut down any remaining home games. The 49ers' season came to an end with a 26-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, which means the players, coaches, and staff will now get the chance to go home -- and in some cases see their families -- for the first time in 32 days. It's understandable then that after that loss to the Seahawks, 49ers players and head coach Kyle Shanahan showed visible happiness that 2020

Seahawks ran unneeded play late in win over 49ers to get WR David Moore $100,000 bonus

By Kirk Larrabee

There are times when a winning team running an unnecessary play with the game in hand would be something that falls under the category of poor sportsmanship, but it turns out the Seattle Seahawks had a good reason to do so against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The Seahawks had the lead and the ball with 22 seconds to play in their 26-23 win over the 49ers, which is a situation where teams would usually kneel on the ball to run out the clock. But they decided instead to run a short five-yard pass play to wide receiver David Moore, which left some observers confused. After the game, it was revealed the Seahawks ran the play for Moore so he could get a performance bonus of $100,000. Moore's contract stipulates that he gets the bonus for 35 receptions on the
