Season Record: 122-84
49ers Picks Record: 5-8

Best & Worst Picks of Week 14

Final Score: Eagles 24 - Saints 21

My Worst Pick: Giants 26 - Cardinals 19
Final Score: Giants 7 - Cardinals 26

Week 15 Picks


Los Angeles Chargers vs. Las Vegas Radiers (-3) - Raiders squeak by Raiders 23 - Chargers 21

Buffalo Bills vs. Denver Broncos (+5.5) - Bills continue to dominate Bills 34 - Broncos 16

Carolina Panthers vs. Green Bay Packers (-8.5) - Packers in a rout Packers 27 - Panthers 13

Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts (-7) - Colts defense pulls out a close one Colts 24 - Texans 17

Detroit Lions vs. Tennessee Titans (-8.5) - Henry carries Titans to another W Titans 19 - Lions 10

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Atlanta Falcons (+5.5) - Bad Brady isn't bad enough to lose here Bucs 23 - Falcons 19

New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins (-2) - The East has passed them by Dolphins 31 - Patriots 12

Seattle Seahawks vs. Washington Football Team (+5) - WFT. WTF, another W? WFT 23 - Seahawks 20

Chicago Bears vs. Minnesota Vikings (-3) - Playoffs loom large here. Vikings come out alive Vikings 28 - Bears 6

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Baltimore Ravens (-13) - Jacksonville shocks the world Jags 20 - Ravens 18

New York Jets vs. Los Angeles Rams (-17) - 0-16 is coming Rams 44 - Jets 10

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Arizona Cardinals (-6) - Hurts does it again Eagles 27 - Cardinals 19

Kansas City Chiefs vs. New Orleans Saints (+3.5) - Chiefs completely demolish a pretender Chiefs 37 - Saints 20

Cleveland Browns vs. New York Giants (+3.5) - Browns get back on the playoff track Browns 23 - Giants 16

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals (+13) - Steelers in a rout Steelers 27 - Bengals 9

San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys (+2.5)


Why SF Wins: Dallas is really bad. The 49ers have a more talented roster, and the talent flat out wins out. Robert Saleh's defense shuts down a bad Cowboys offense and the 49ers limit turnovers. This is how the 49ers can win this one.

Why SF Loses: Nick Mullens is still starting for the 49ers. The WRs of Dallas can be tough matchups and the 49ers are coming off of a game that felt like the final straw to a lost season. Dallas takes advantage of a sloppy 49ers team and comes away with the W.

Prediction: The 49ers continue to play with no real sense of urgency and the gameplan stays the same as it has been all year long. A stagnant 49ers team goes through the motions and comes away with another loss in a game they should have won. Cowboys 31 - 49ers 22

PFF ranks 49ers' Nick Bosa as the best of the NFL's young rising stars

By Rohan Chakravarthi
May 18

Pro Football Focus (PFF) did their annual ranking of the top 25 players under 25 entering the season, compiling a list of the many young stars that have taken over football in the past few years. With the criteria being "under 25," several players graduated from PFF's rankings last year, including 49ers' star linebacker Fred Warner, who came in as the best player under 25 on PFF's list in 2021, which was ahead of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, then-Tennessee Titans receiver A.J. Brown, and San Francisco's own Nick Bosa, who slotted in at two, three, and four, respectively on the list. In their 2022 version, PFF ranked Bosa as their best player under 25 in 2022, ahead of quarterback Justin Herbert, running back Jonathan Taylor, and most notably,



49ers' George Kittle: 'Trent Williams is the best football player in the NFL'

By David Bonilla

Trent Williams' 97.8 overall Pro Football Focus grade from the 2021 regular season led the NFL. In fact, it was the highest-ever grade awarded by the analytics site. Now, some will criticize the grade, arguing that you can't consider an offensive tackle the best player in the league. Don't tell that to All-Pro tight end George Kittle, Williams' San Francisco 49ers teammate. "Trent Williams is the best football player in the NFL," Kittle declared Friday on The Pat McAfee Show (h/t NBC Sports Bay Area). "I don't care. You could talk to me about any



Reporter: Thursday believed to be 49ers QB Trey Lance's best practice of the offseason

By David Bonilla
May 27

This may not be as headline-worthy as it would have been had someone said it toward the middle or end of training camp. After all, the San Francisco 49ers just started organized team activities (OTAs) this week, wrapping up their third practice on Thursday. One reporter, Pro Football Focus' Doug Kyed, is hearing that the last session was second-year quarterback Trey Lance's best. "Lance has impressed people within the organization so far this spring, and the team feels he's already shown progress early in organized team activities," Kyed recently wrote for Pro Football Focus. "Thursday was believed to be his best practice



Jerry Rice says Trey Lance 'has all the tools' to succeed with 49ers

By David Bonilla
May 24

Chris Simms lacks confidence in San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. The NBC Sports analyst recently stated that he wouldn't have drafted the player had the decision been his to make. "I see the potential. I get it," Simms recently said on his podcast, Chris Simms Unbuttoned. "I'm just not sure it's going to all come together." Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice is less pessimistic about the second-year quarterback's future. The 49ers legend sat down with Lance and discussed the 22-year-old's potential to be great and lead the Bay Area team to success. "I knew Trey was going to be special from the first day I talked to him," Rice said during an interview for Boardroom (h/t
