Biggest Area of Concern for 49ers , Titans Heading into ‘TNF’
The 49ers seem to have hit their stride. The team is playing complementary football, which was not the case earlier in the season.
The main storyline surrounding this 49ers team was who they were, or where they were. And lately they found it. The San Francisco offensive was effective. Despite injuries in the backfield, they are finding ways to direct the ball effectively, including involving their best receiver. Jimmy Garoppolo played well, recording a 70.2 completion percentage, averaging 8.81 yards per attempt and throwing ten touchdowns for just three interceptions in the past six weeks.
Defensively, the 49ers were successful in slowing down opponents and forcing turnovers (more to come on this). The unit has just come off a dominant outing last week against the Falcons where they forced three turnovers on downs inside their own 10-yard line and allowed Atlanta to score in just one of them. their five trips to the red zone.
Both teams are looking to remain relevant in their respective postseason pictures, with a win on Thursday being an added boost for both clubs entering into the final stretch of the season.
