For the first time since 2012, the San Francisco 49ers are on a roll.
And unless something crazy happens, their roll will continue.
The 49ers are taking on an 0-7 Jacksonville Jaguars team, one that is nothing better than abysmal. It has nothing on offense and a bunch of no-name players on defense, and it shouldn’t be too much of a challenge for the 49ers.
Sure, those no-names have done a respectable job on defense. They held Peyton Manning to fewer than 300 yards, and they have done a nice job against the run. However, the 49ers simply have too many weapons for the Jaguars.
Colin Kaepernick should find the end zone, and Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis should take advantage of Jacksonville’s lack of a star cornerback. Frank Gore might not go off, but he should get in the end zone a few times.
As for the defense, expect a great day. Chad Henne put up 318 yards against a weak San Diego Chargers defense last week, but he only got six points for his team.
With a washed-up Maurice Jones-Drew, Jacksonville’s running game will likely be shut down. Unless Henne and star receiver Justin Blackmon go off, and unless the Jaguars completely shut down the 49ers offense, the 49ers will win.
San Francisco is too good and playing too well to lose. It won’t score tons of points, but it should win easily. Expect a 28-10 49ers win.
