After losing a very close and winable game this past Sunday night, the San Francisco 49ers will be looking to improve on that performance and close out the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at Levi Stadium.

The Ravens, like the 49ers, are also 1-4. It’s hard to believe that both of these teams were in the Super Bowl just under 3 years ago, but that’s how the NFL works.

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.

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:
