San Francisco at Tennessee Game Preview

Why San Francisco Will Win

Tennessee is having injury issues on the offensive line with OT Taylor Lewan and OG Rodger Saffold out.

Tennessee backfield, welcome to the San Francisco defensive front.

The Titan offense has sputtered and coughed over the last few weeks, failing to score more than 20 points in any of the last four games with 13 turnovers in there losses and with little to no passing game.

AJ Brown is expected to be back soon, but Julio Jones hasn’t done much, and the playmakers aren’t getting the job done when the running game isn’t.

San Francisco’s offense has heated up. Deebo Samuel has been great, the running game has been solid, and the team has won five of its last six games with a whole lot of big pass plays and a good balance.

It’s been a rough run over the last month, but the running game is doing a decent job without Derrick Henry. A slew of parts are being pieced together to hammer out over 200 yards in two of the last three games and with 100 yards or more in the last four.

What’s Going To Happen

San Francisco is playing too well and the Tennessee offense is just too mediocre.

At home, and with the season starting to slip, the Titan defense will come up with a gem to keep the close, but Ryan Tannehill and the passing attack won’t do enough to take advantage of the opportunities.

It’ll be a good fight, but the 49er offense will do a bit more defensively on third downs.
