Final Score: Giants 7 - Cardinals 26

Week 16 Picks

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Detroit Lions (+9.5) - Bucs pull out a close game on the final drive Bucs 34 - Lions 28

Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks (-1) - Hate to do it, but Seattle wins the West Seahawks 31 - Rams 29

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys (+2.5) - Big game from Hurts carries Eagles Eagles 51 - Cowboys 34

Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots (+7) - Bill can't stop the Bills Bills 31 - Patriots 13

San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals (-5)


Why SF Wins: Perhaps the change from Nick Mullens to C.J. Beathard will give the 49ers the shot in the arm that they desperately needed. Although it's unclear what Shanahan is thinking, apparently there is a good chance that TE George Kittle will play in this game as well. A few fresh faces spark the offense, while the sturdy defense returns and the 49ers remember to cover WR DeAndre Hopkins.

Why SF Loses: Arizona is a better football team. The 49ers coaches are struggling and C.J. Beathard is the 49ers' new hope at the quarterback position. None of this adds up to a 49ers victory. Arizona has everything to play for, and the 49ers are just praying for no more injuries.

Prediction: The 49ers pull off a Christmas miracle and gift their fans with a surprise win. Ho Ho Ho Faithful. Merry Christmas! 49ers 28 - Cardinals 20

Five Somewhat Bold 49ers Predictions

By Marc Adams
Jul 27, 2021

We have finally arrived! The San Francisco 49ers players have reported to training camp, and tomorrow will have their first practice. This is the best time of the year for football fans. And it is the best time of the year to make your football predictions. So with that in mind, here are my somewhat bold 49ers predictions. 1. Trey Sermon will lead the team in rushing yards. The rookie running back may not be as explosive as Raheem Mostert, but he has a better chance of staying healthy. I believe the offensive staff will limit Mostert's carries, and Sermon fits the 49ers



Who Are The Best Follows For 49ers News and Content?

Wait...what? Who writes an article about beat writers? Whose stupid idea was this? We like to read about players and coaches...the team - not the people who cover them. Right? We are just one week away from the San Francisco 49ers reporting to training camp. Although the first practice does not start until Saturday, July 31st, the players will begin filing in next Tuesday (July 27th). So I thought I would share my favorite follows, when it comes to 49ers news and content. And though this may end up being a train wreck of an idea, here are some of the really talented people who keep me informed: For 49ers news, notes, content We have many great people who cover the 49ers. The two beat writers I most recommend are



49ers' Fred Warner ranks No. 3 among NFL.com's best off-ball linebackers

By David Bonilla
Jul 25, 2021

NFL Network analyst Bucky Brooks recently ranked his top five off-ball linebackers in the league, and San Francisco 49ers fans may be disappointed to learn that the team's star defender, Fred Warner, was not at the top of the list. He wasn't at No. 2 either. Warner, who signed a five-year, $95 million contract extension last week, came in at No. 3, behind Bobby Wagner of the Seattle Seahawks and Darius Leonard of the Indianapolis Colts. Maybe that will be further motivation for the 24-year-old linebacker, who has many years in front of him. "The All-Pro has become one of the league's most disruptive players as an



'This is the best that I've felt physically': 49ers WR Mohamed Sanu ready for training camp competition

By David Bonilla
Jul 25, 2021

Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is entering his 10th NFL season and hopes to climb the San Francisco 49ers depth chart during training camp, which kicks off this week. Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel figure to be the starters come Week 1. The spots behind them are up for grabs. Sanu's experience may give him an edge, though, when it comes to the No. 3 job. The veteran wideout is already familiar with the offense. He played for head coach Kyle Shanahan, then an offensive coordinator, for a season in Atlanta. That helps. Sanu was briefly with San Francisco last year, appearing in three games but hauling in only one catch for nine yards. He spent the remainder of the season with the Detroit Lions before rejoining the 49ers at the end of March. Sanu says he
