It’s been quite some time since San Francisco has been this low, but after Sunday’s 47-7 blowout at the hands of division rival Arizona, it’s safe to say the future is not exactly bright in the Bay Area.
- The 49ers are 4-0 SU and 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games against the Packers.
- 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick threw four interceptions for the first time in his career in Week 3.
- The Packers are 16-2 SU and 14-4 ATS in their last 18 games in October.
Things won’t get any easier for the Niners as a tough home matchup against Aaron Rodgers and the high-flying Green Bay Packers is on tap for Week 4.
Many predicted the 49ers would regress after a brutal offseason riddled with surprising retirements, players departing via free agency, and the loss of ex-coach Jim Harbaugh, but it appears the drop off could be even worse than originally expected.
San Fran is ranked dead last in the NFL in points scored per game, averaging only 15 points per game. Their defense hasn’t fared much better, allowing 31 points per game, ranking second to last in that department.
Considering the defense has allowed an average of 284.3 passing yards per game, San Francisco could be in for another long day with quarterback Aaron Rodgers coming to town.
