Gameday: San Francisco 49ers at Jacksonville Jaguars

Oct 27, 2013 at 12:00 AM--




This morning, the San Francisco 49ers will face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars at London's Wembley Stadium. The two teams last met on November 29, 2009 when the 49ers beat the Jaguars 20-3 in San Francisco.

Offensively, the 49ers are ranked 17th in the league while the Jaguars are ranked 32nd. Defensively, the 49ers are ranked 8th in the league while the Jaguars are ranked 28th.


The 49ers, who have scored 31 or more points in their last four games, are looking for their fifth consecutive victory while the Jaguars are simply looking for their first win of the season. The 49ers are ranked third in the league with over 143 rushing yards per game and look to continue their strong running attack against one of the worst defenses in the league. The Jaguars are allowing over 153 rushing yards per game. In four of their last five games, the Jaguars have allowed over 400 total yards by the opposing offense.

So far this season, the Jaguars are struggling on both sides of the ball. On average, the offense is scoring a league low 10.9 points per game. Their defense has allowed a league high average of 31.7 points per game. While this is the 49ers' third regular season trip out of the country, this is the Jaguars' first. The Jaguars have committed to four games in London over the next four seasons. Chad Henne, who replaced Blaine Gabbert due to injury, will make his third straight start. He has passed for over 300 yards in each of his last two games.

This will be an emotional game for Jaguars head coach, Gus Bradley. He joined the team in London on Wednesday following the death of his father on Sunday.

Last week, the 49ers (5-2) defeated the Tennessee Titans 31-17. The Jaguars (0-7) were defeated by the San Diego Chargers 24-6.

For the 49ers, WR Quinton Patton (foot) is out. WR Jon Baldwin (illness), DT Glenn Dorsey (hamstring), DT Ray McDonald (biceps), CB Carlos Rogers (knee), and DT Justin Smith (shoulder) are listed as questionable. G Alex Boone (shoulder), LB Navorro Bowman (wrist), T Anthony Davis (shoulder), TE Vernon Davis (hamstring), RB Frank Gore (ankle), QB Colin Kaepernick (foot), S Donte Whitner (knee), WR Kyle Williams (knee), and LB Patrick Willis (groin) are listed as probable.

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.

Where ESPN ranks the 49ers in NFL future power ranking

ESPN recently asked its panel of "experts" — Jeremy Fowler, Louis Riddick, Seth Walder, and Field Yates — to rate each NFL team's quarterback situation, remaining (non-QB) roster, drafting ability, front office, and coaching. Using those ratings, it then ranked all 32 NFL teams on how well they are positioned for the future, creating a power ranking based on projection over the next three seasons. The Kansas City Chiefs came in at No. 1 with an overall score of 88.5. The Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers came in at No. 2 with a score of 88.1. The San Francisco 49ers were the highest-ranked



PFF projects Jimmy Garoppolo as a 49ers starter, Dee Ford as a player to watch

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to be the Week 1 starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when they travel to Detroit to play the Lions. However, some wonder how quickly rookie Trey Lance will get up to speed and if the No. 3 overall pick could show enough in training camp to create a difficult decision for head coach Kyle Shanahan. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus projected the starting lineups for all 32 NFL teams, and one of the biggest 49ers-related takeaways is that he has Garoppolo firmly situated as the team's starter, despite the analytics site stating in the past that it holds Lance in high regard and believes he will find NFL success. Lance is still a
