Dan Campbell has done a phenomenal job as a head coach, assembling a tough and talented Detroit Lions team. On offense, they boast multiple playmakers capable of breaking a game open at any time and from any position on the field. The team has fully embraced the identity instilled by Campbell.

Their offensive strategy revolves around a love for running the ball in many ways, utilizing the screen game as an extension of the run game and exploiting lanes to empower their playmakers to use their speed to break open a game.

On defense, they adopt an aggressive approach, actively seeking to disrupt and penetrate the offensive line, frequently deploying blitzes from varied looks. Additionally, their defensive backs attack the ball. With that, they can be susceptible to some explosive plays.

Yet, this aggressiveness is part of Dan Campbell's coaching philosophy. He wants to bite people's kneecaps off and goes for it on fourth down more than most.

The upcoming matchup promises excitement, and the 49ers aim to secure their second trip to the Super Bowl in five seasons. A deep dive into the game film will reveal what the 49ers need to do to come away with a win and secure a trip to Las Vegas for Super Bowl 58.
