49ers end zones get a throwback look for Bengals game

Dec 19, 2015 at 2:36 PM--


For Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, it looks like Levi's Stadium may have a bit of a throwback look. Ryan Sakamoto of Ninerfans.com pointed out yesterday that the stadium end zones have taken on a classic 80's look, complete with the return of the Quentin font that was used in the text logos. Many have felt that the classic text logos were always better than the current one, which has adopted the same font that is used for the S and F within the primary logo.

The logo on the 50-yard line remains current. These text logos were used by the team from 1972 through 2004, and would return after that time when the 49ers would wear their throwback uniforms.

Below are some videos that Sakamoto posted of the throwback end zones, which are complete with the classic 49ers and NFC helmets used back then.

49ers DE Nick Bosa 'starting to get the hang' of how to get high sack numbers

By Kirk Larrabee

Nick Bosa notched his ninth and tenth sacks of the 2021 season on Sunday, and if what he said after the game is any indication, there could be a lot more to come. Bosa collected those two sacks in the 49ers' 30-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, which was the seventh game this season where he's had at least one sack. He's now one ahead of the nine sacks he notched as a rookie in 2019 and is three away from league leader Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns. Watching players like Garrett, and others, who rack up high amounts of sacks has helped teach Bosa how to get big numbers of his own. "I think I've definitely improved a lot. I think I'm starting to get the hang of just how to really get sacks, get numbers," Bosa said Sunday. "My rookie year,



NFL changes kickoff time for 49ers-Bengals Week 14 matchup

If you were planning to travel for the San Francisco 49ers' road game against the Cincinnati Bengals on December 12, you might want to note that the kickoff time for the Week 14 matchup has changed. On Tuesday, the NFL announced a few schedule changes, including moving 49ers-Bengals from its original 10:00 a.m. PT (1:00 p.m. ET) kickoff to 1:25 p.m. PT (4:25 p.m. ET). However, nothing else about the game has changed. It will still take place on Sunday, December 12, and CBS will still broadcast the game. The two other announced schedule changes are the Week 14 New Orleans Saints at New York Jets game moving to CBS and the Week 15 Green Bay at Baltimore Ravens game moving its kickoff time from 10:00 a.m. PT (1:00 p.m. ET) to 1:25 p.m. PT (4:25 p.m. ET) on



49ers set tone of dominance with long opening drive against Jaguars, even if it didn't end the way they wanted

As was the case against the Los Angeles Rams last week, the San Francisco 49ers sent a loud, and clear message right off the bat in their 30-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday with a long opening drive that quickly established their dominance and set the tone for what would take place the rest of the game—even if what happened at the end of the drive felt somewhat disappointing. Whereas last week's opening drive in the 49ers' 31-10 win over the Rams came off a turnover and ended in a touchdown after lasting 18 plays, 93 yards, and eleven minutes and three seconds, this week's opening drive came after the opening kickoff and took up thirteen minutes and five seconds while spanning 20 plays and 87 yards before the 49ers took a 3-0 lead on a 20-yard Robbie



49ers flip the script on turnovers to help get their swagger back

By Kirk Larrabee

The statistics from the San Francisco 49ers over their past two games are what one might expect given how dominant they've played. They've outscored their past two opponents—the Los Angeles Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars—by a combined score of 61-20. They ran the ball over 40 times in each game, with a total rushing yardage edge of 327 to 106. They held the ball for 39:03 against the Rams and 38:22 against the Jaguars. But there might be one stat in particular that is most responsible for the turnaround the 49ers are seeing after their 3-5 start. The stat in question is turnover differential, which is trending in the right direction for the 49ers after being among the worst in the NFL over their first eight games. The numbers still aren't
