Gameday: San Francisco 49ers at Tennessee Titans

Oct 20, 2013 at 12:00 AM--




This afternoon, the Titans will host the San Francisco 49ers at LP Field in Nashville, Tennessee. The two teams last met on November 8, 2009 when the Titans beat the 49ers 34-27 in San Francisco.

Offensively, the 49ers are ranked 23rd in the league while the Titans are ranked 29th. Defensively, the 49ers are ranked 9th in the league while the Titans are ranked 10th.


The 49ers are looking for their fourth consecutive victory while the Titans are looking to avoid a third straight loss. The 49ers' current regular season winning streak is their longest since the end of the 2011 season. 49ers running back Frank Gore has averaged almost 80 yards per game this season. During the past four games, he has averaged just over 104 yards per game.

It was announced on Saturday that, barring a late setback, Titans starting quarterback Jake Locker would be back in the lineup after missing the past three games due to a hip injury suffered in a win over the New York Jets just three weeks ago. It was originally believed Locker would miss four to eight weeks. Titans running back Chris Johnson started the season strong averaging over 85 yards per game during the team's first three games. During the Titans' last three games, he has only rushed for a combined 71 yards.

Last week, the 49ers (4-2) defeated the Arizona Cardinals 32-20. The Titans (3-3) were defeated by the Seattle Seahawks 20-13.

The end of the 2022 season brings a whole new set of questions for the San Francisco 49ers -- questions that will start to get answered in the weeks and months ahead after looming large in the locker room following their NFC Championship loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he
