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.

The San Francisco 49ers are heading back to the playoffs for the first time since their 2019 Super Bowl run after a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory against the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers were a 13-3 powerhouse in 2019, earning the #1 seed and a first-round bye, but this 2021 version, a 10-game winner and the 6th seed, may actually be better positioned to win it all than the 2019 squad.

The Risk and Reward of the 49ers Starting Trey Lance on Sunday

By Chris Beno
Jan 5

Last Sunday, rookie quarterback Trey Lance showed improvement since his first, and only start in Week 5. Lance completed 16 of 23 pass attempts for 249 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception—a very Jimmy Garoppolo-like stat line. After struggling to find an offensive rhythm early in the first half, Lance came out guns blazing in the second, spreading the ball all over the field, especially outside of the numbers, and targeting the deeper and intermediate routes on pass plays. Trey Lance brought a vertical element to the 49ers offense in his second career start.Lance averaged the most air
