Week #3: San Francisco 49ers @ CenturyLink Field – Sunday, Sept. 25th
Another team trying to figure out a new system under a new head coach, but the 49ers roster isn’t even as talented as Miami’s. Whether it’s Blaine Gabbart or Colin Kaepernick under center, the weapons on offense necessary to run Chip Kelly’s offense are still lacking. The 49ers big, young, athletic defensive front could cause some issues for a Seattle offensive line that may take some time to find their footing, but every other positional matchup in this game is in the Seahawks favor.
Certainly, the 49ers will view this as an opportunity for an early season statement, but one they won’t likely be prepared to make yet.
