Game Day: San Diego Chargers at San Francisco 49ers

Sep 3, 2015 at 12:00 AM--


Tonight, the San Francisco 49ers (1-2) will host the San Diego Chargers (2-1) at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

The Chargers are coming off of a 16-15 loss against the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers are coming off of a 19-12 loss against the Denver Broncos.


The 49ers finish the 2015 preseason against their second straight AFC West opponent as they host the Chargers. The 49ers and Chargers have met every year in preseason since 1987 with the 49ers having won the last five matchups.

Against the Broncos, the 49ers rushed for 145 yards. Players like RB Reggie Bush and RB Kendall Hunter saw their first preseason action of the season. Bush ripped off a 21-yard run in his only attempt while QB Colin Kaepernick added 53 himself.

The first-team unit should not see much action against the Chargers. The final preseason game is mostly for roster evaluation as teams are required to cut their squads down to 53 players by 1 PM on Saturday. Tonight will be a good opportunity for players to impress the 49ers coaches as well as coaches around the league.

The good news for fans outside of the Bay Area is that NFL Network has picked up the game and will broadcast it live, giving many fans their first opportunity this season to see the team on TV.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan weighs in on Trey Lance, other rookies, decision to attend Mac Jones' pro day over Justin Fields'

By Kirk Larrabee

Monday's press conference with San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch didn't offer any concrete clues on which quarterback they'll be taking with the third overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, but one thing did become perfectly clear -- they very much seem to like the options they have in front of them out of a group that will likely consist of Mac Jones of Alabama, Justin Fields of Ohio State, and Trey Lance of North Dakota State. The world won't know which of those players the 49ers like the most until the draft's first round takes place on April 29, but there's already been plenty of speculation as to who the selection will be. The widespread assumption is that quarterback Trevor Lawrence of Clemson will go at pick one to the

For those reading way too much into the presence of San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan being in Tuscaloosa today for Mac Jones' workout and not in Columbus for Justin Fields', Shanahan offered the following explanation on Monday. "[Just] talking with Fields's agent [David Mulugheta] and everything, we'll get another one from him too," Shanahan said via Kirk Larrabee. "So we'll be able to see him. That kind of made it an easy



Neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked Nick Saban about Mac Jones, potential 49ers draft pick, at pro day

File this under interesting pre-draft tidbits. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan were in attendance for Alabama's pro day last week. That made headlines because the duo opted to watch quarterback Mac Jones rather than attend Ohio State's pro day to watch Justin Fields. Paired with Chris Simms' speculation that San Francisco might have traded up to the No. 3 spot for Jones, that spurred others to seriously consider a Jones-to-49ers scenario. Alabama head coach Nick Saban recently joined the Dan Patrick Show and shared that neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked him anything about his former quarterback, who helped guide the Crimson Tide to a national championship. And it wasn't because they didn't have an opportunity to do



Trey Lance to hold second pro day on April 19; 49ers expected to attend

Justin Fields of Ohio State will hold his second pro day workout on Wednesday, April 14. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to be in attendance. Both missed the former Buckeye quarterback's first pro day to attend Mac Jones' workout in Tuscaloosa. Shanahan and Lynch will have an opportunity to see quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State in person too. He will hold a second pro day on Monday, April 19 — 10 days before the start of the 2021 NFL Draft. North Dakota St. QB Trey Lance has now scheduled his second pro day for April 19, or 10 days before
