Not much to say about this one. Last year’s battle was an epic shootout the 49ers won 48-46. With our defense at close to full strength. Now? Not so much on either side of the ball.
I really don’t see a scenario where the plucky understudies come through and bring the team to victory, but I didn’t think we’d beat the Rams. This however is a different animal. Brees is having another huge year with 2100 yards, 17 TDs, and only 3 picks.
We of course have Nick Mullens. 11 yards, 5 TDs 4 picks. Good news? Brendan Aiyuk is off the COVID list and will play. As is Kendrick Bourne. Rick James had a career game last week. 9 for 183 and a TD.
So, we may get some points. I’m thinking 42- 24.
