1. The New York Giants won’t be feeling big after the 49ers take care of them.

In Week 3 of the NFL season, the 49ers will make their first trip to New York to take on the Giants since 2015. Overall, New York has a 21-20 record over San Francisco, but it’ll be tied when the game is over.

New York had a decent offseason. They added Jason Garrett to their coaching staff to go along with wide receivers Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard, and quarterback Daniel Jones.

New head coach Joe Judge will have his hands full in trying to turn the New York “football” Giants back into playoff contenders. With a strong, young core in place, the transition from losing to winning won’t take too long.

However, this is the third game of the season. The Giants will have played the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears. Both teams could overlook the Giants leading to false hope on Broadway. The 49ers will not overlook New York.

Even if the 49ers take a step back in 2020, winning in back-to-back weeks against the New York teams will be a guarantee. The 49ers are just too polished in all three phases of the game to let the Giants steal the victory.

It’s always difficult for a team that made the Super Bowl in the previous season to continue playing at an elite level.

But for the San Francisco 49ers, if they take care of these three teams, they’ll be ready to compete for the NFC title once again.
