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.

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.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury knows he has a difficult task ahead of him on Sunday when the Arizona Cardinals visit Levi's Stadium to open the season against the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers. The Cardinals finished last season with just five wins, which was last in the NFC West. They've upgraded their offense, adding players like wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, and bolstered their defense with young talent like rookie linebacker Isaiah Simmons. And, of course, there is always pass rusher Chandler Jones, who the 49ers have to find a way to stop. Left tackle Trent Williams started studying ways to stop Jones when the NFL schedule was released in May. "Me and him had some epic battles, and we've went back and forth a few times,"
