Game Day: San Francisco 49ers at Oakland Raiders

Dec 7, 2014 at 12:00 AM--


Today, the San Francisco 49ers (7-5) will travel across the bay to play the Oakland Raiders (1-11) at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

The 49ers are coming off of a bitter 19-3 home defeat to the rival Seattle Seahawks . The Raiders are coming off of a humiliating 52-0 road loss to the St. Louis Rams.


The loss to the Seahawks has further fueled speculation among the media regarding 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh's future with the team. Many wonder if today's opponent could be a likely landing spot for Harbaugh should the 49ers decide to part ways with him. A loss to the lowly Raiders could seal Harbaugh's fate in the eyes of ownership and management.

However, there are many who wonder why the 49ers would make such a move considering the state of the team prior to Harbaugh's arrival. The 49ers had missed the playoffs for eight straight seasons. Since his arrival, they have made it to the NFC Championship in each of his three seasons with the team and had a Super Bowl appearance.

On Monday, when asked if he would like to return to the 49ers in 2015, he dodged the question and simply stated, "What I want is to attack this week and get it right."

The 49ers are currently one-game behind the teams in the lead for a wild-card spot.

Against the Seahawks, quarterback Colin Kaepernick had the second lowest passer rating of his career at 36.7. He was just 16 of 29 for 121 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.

The team is averaging just 19.3 points per game and is need of a major confidence builder. The Raiders defense, which gave up 52 points to the Rams on Sunday may be just the cure they need. Of course, if the 49ers cannot get anything going against the Raiders, their playoff hopes may be finished.

The 49ers and Raiders have not faced each other since 2010, which running back Frank Gore rushed for 149 yards in a 17-9 win at Candlestick Park.

Against the Rams, the Raiders turned the ball over a season-high five times. Rookie quarterback Derek Carr was benched after going 24 of 39 for 173 yards and two interceptions. He was replaced by Matt Schaub who was 5 of 9 for 57 yards and an interception that was returned for a touchdown. Carr will get the start against the 49ers.

How will the 49ers' depth chart look as the NFL Draft moves on? That's a question we'll attempt to answer here. It's a bit difficult at this time of the year to accurately project a depth chart, given how many players are new to the team, how many will come and go in the weeks ahead, and how many positions may shift down the line.

The 49ers will release their first unofficial depth chart at some point in the weeks or months ahead.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters following Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft. Here is everything they had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. Well, let's start with the first guy, OL Aaron Banks. He's bigger, 330 pounds, than what we normally think of when we think of a 49ers offensive lineman. What drew you to him and what about that size? Does he move that size well? General Manager John Lynch: "I think obviously you always want the guy that's big, that can move and is a scheme fit. And I think in this case, we believe that we found a candidate for that. We really grew to appreciate Aaron throughout the process. His film was
