The San Francisco 49ers vs New York Jets is one of the major matches taking place on Sunday. The game starts at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
San Francisco are coming into the game off a loss to Minnesota in week 3. During that game the 49ers looked at odds and did not perform to the level witnessed over the first two weeks. They will be looking to set the record straight today and recapture their form, and the last thing they want is to start on a losing streak after such a hopeful start to the season.
Both sides come into this game with 2-1 records, and this NFC vs AFC match up will see one team progress to what can be considered a solid start to the regular season, and the other fall to a disappointing mixed opening.
The New York Jets have a good offensive line, but analysts have been pointing out some apparent holes that make them susceptible to powerful defensive fronts. D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Nick Mangold are two stand out players, but apart from them there is a sense of instability along the offensive line.
The 49ers defensive line are very strong. They had a terrible game against the Vikings last week, but there is enough talent here for them to bounce back powerfully and punish the Jets if they are not right on top of their game.
In particular, Justin Smith will be one player San Francisco fans will be looking towards to collapse protections and take command of gaps.
The 49ers at their best can be hugely disruptive, and if they can outwork their opposition and break up the offensive plays at their core then they will have a fantastic chance against the Jets.
