49ers vs Giants Preview

REDNGOLD_2015_wk5_49ers vs Giants Preview

After the offensive performance by the offense last week, the 49ers are looking to rebound this Sunday Night against the New York Giants.

Both teams aren't playing very good, but the Giants are doing enough to maintain a .500 record and due to the ugliness that is the NFC East, the Giants can finish 9-7 and they will have a reasonable chance at winning their division.

While the Giants don't have a great offensive line and have their issues on defense, the 49ers have a lot more problems they need to correct.

49ers vs Packers Preview

It's Packers Week, but it doesn't have the same ring to it as it had a couple of years ago.

Currently, the San Francisco 49ers are reeling and many have already thrown in the towel for the 2015 season. It is still to early for that, but there are serious concerns as to whether or not the Niners can right the ship and still be competitive.

When the Packers have the ball

The 49ers have had their share of problems on defense, but they'll be put to an even bigger test this week as they face Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers do have injury problems. Right Tackle Bryan Bulaga is out and his replacement, Don Barclay, is average at best.

Scorched in the Desert

I'm hoping we're not going to be asking the question, "What happened?!" every week, but this is now two games in a row.

The Arizona Cardinals completely dismantled the 49ers 47-7 on Sunday and it raises a lot of questions going into next week's game against the Packers.

From the start of the game, the combination of poor offensive line play and Colin Kaepernick's inaccuracy sunk the Niners before they could get started. It was a very tall order to ask the defense to take over this game when the offense put the team into an instant 14-0 hole.

The first game against a division opponent is here. Sunday's matchup will feature your San Francisco 49ers traveling to Arizona to take on the Cardinals

Preview

It will be a very difficult matchup first because of it being on the road. Arizona is a tough place to play, and also because Head Coach Bruce Arians is one of the best in the game.

Here are the keys to the 49ers winning the game on both sides of the ball:

Letdown in Pittsburgh

After a good all-around showing by the 49ers last Monday night, all signs pointed to a hard-fought game in Pittsburgh where the Niners would have a reasonable chance to put up 24 points and let their defense pound the Steelers into submission.

That scenario was not to be in this universe as the 49ers defense was virtually invisible for the entire game. Let's start with the bad and move to the good on this review:
