Oct 1, 2015 at 10:08 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers started Thursday as eight-point underdogs for their game against the Green Bay Packers at Levi's Stadium on Sunday.

When was the last time that the 49ers were eight-point underdogs at home? According to Pro Football Reference, it was in 2007 when the 49ers were really bad and faced the Cincinnati Bengals. They were 8.5 point underdogs then. The good news? The 49ers won that December matchup by a score of 20-13.

The 49ers started the season well with a 20-3 home opening victory against the Minnesota Vikings. Over the course of the following two weeks, the 49ers have been outscored 90-25 in road games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals.

QB Colin Kaepernick has thrown 4 interceptions and been sacked 7 times behind a shaky offensive line during those losses. His 16.7 passer rating against the Cardinals was the lowest of his NFL career.

The 49ers kick off against the Packers on Sunday at 1:25 PM PT. You can find deals on tickets here.

The San Francisco 49ers (1-1) rebounded from their Week 1 loss with a 31-13 rout of the home-team New York Jets on Sunday. The victory came at a high cost, however, as several players left the field with injuries — with at least one believed to be long-term. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a high-ankle sprain while defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas, along with running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman, sustained knee injuries.

The San Francisco 49ers running back knows that losing on Sunday to the Arizona Cardinals was a disappointment, but he and his teammates aren't dwelling on it. "For me, personally, I think that game just kind of woke the beast up a little bit as far as where we want to go," Mostert said. "We've just got to take care of business this weekend, and handle what we can control, and go out there and try to get another win."
