Sitting at 1-4 San Francisco 49ers Hoodie , after losing their last three games, it doesn’t get any easier for the San Francisco 49ers. They travel to quarterback Aaron Rodgers’
house for a Monday Night Football showdown with the Green Bay Packers.Both teams
are coming off of losses and look to build some momentum heading into the middle
part of the season. Here’s what the 49ers will need to do in order to have some
success in Green Bay and squeak out a victory.1. QB C.J. Beathard and the 49ers’
offense can’t turn the ball over.The 49ers’ offense turned the ball over five —
let me say that again — FIVE times last week against the Cardinals. They weren’t
able to withstand all those errors against Cardinals’ rookie quarterback Josh
Rosen. If San Francisco has any semblance of five turnovers against Rodgers,
it’s going to be a long flight home from Wisconsin. Beathard has to be more
protective of the ball, not sit in the pocket and hold onto the ball. The 49ers’
signal caller is going to need to get rid of the ball in the face of pressure
and live to play the next down.Kyle Shanahan’s offense isn’t good enough to
overcome mistakes and giving Rodgers extra cracks at a leaky 49ers’ defense at
home doesn’t seem like the brightest idea. If the 49ers have any more than one
turnover, it’s a safe bet that they’re losing the ball game.2. San Francisco’s
defense needs to hold Rodgers and Co. to field goals.One of the weaknesses for
the Packers’ offense early in the season has been their ability to convert
touchdowns in the red zone. They’re 19th in the NFL in touchdown percentage, a
statistic that is a ratio of touchdowns to red-zone trips. The Packers struggled
in the red zone last week against the Lions, as the Detroit defense forced field
goals instead of touchdowns. Robert Saleh’s group will need to follow that
recipe on Monday night in order to stay close with the Packers.If the 49ers are
going to win, it’s going to need to be a low-scoring game in the ‘teens. Rodgers
is going to move the ball within the 20s, so the 49ers will need to hold him off
once he gets to the red zone.3. Exploit Green Bay’s middling rush defense and
win time of possession battle.With running back Matt Breida listed as
questionable, there is a good chance this means that carries will be split by
backups Alfred Morris and Raheem Mostert. The two will have to take advantage of
Green Bay’s middle-of-the-road run defense. Through five weeks, the Packers have
been giving up 105 yards per game on the ground, tied for 15th in the NFL. On
the flip side Cheap Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , the 49ers have been the fourth-best rushing team in the NFL, averaging 136.2 yards per game.San
Francisco should look to keep the ball on the ground, limit the number of
drop-backs that Beathard will have to take and keep Rodgers on the Green Bay
sideline. The 49ers’ best defense on Monday might be leaving their offense on
the field for as long as possible.It’s going to be tough if Breida can’t play,
but Morris has proven to be successful in Shanahan’s running scheme in the past.
The 49ers are facing an uphill battle on Monday night, but if they’re able to
execute on these three keys, their chances for a win dramatically increase.Three
keys for a 49ers’ victory against the Cardinals Amidst a five-game stretch where
the 49ers play the Chiefs, Chargers, Packers and Rams, the most winnable game is
this Sunday against the Cardinals. Arizona comes into San Francisco winless on
the season, with rookie quarterback Josh Rosen making his second start. On the
other sideline, quarterback C.J. Beathard suits up as the starter for the second
straight week after Jimmy Garoppolo went down for the season. Both teams are
trying to find their footing after rough patches to start the season. Kyle
Shanahan possesses the better roster and more experienced quarterback, so it’s
time for the 49ers to go out and be the better team on Sunday. If they’re going
to be successful on Sunday Nick Mullens Jersey , here’s where San Francisco should start.1. RB Matt Breida must have a season-high in rushing attemptsWhile 49ers’ running back Matt Breida
is third in rushing yards in the NFL, he’s only attempted 11, 11, 10, nine
rushes in the 49ers’ four games. What’s awaiting Breida and the 49ers’ rushing
attack on Sunday? Oh, only the third-worst rushing defense in the NFL in the
Cardinals. Arizona has given up 565 yards on the ground, just slightly ahead New
England and Detroit.Week 1 vs. Washington, running back Adrian Peterson rushed
for 96 yards and one touchdown against Arizona. Last week, Seahawks’ running
back Mike Davis rushed for 101 yards on the ground and two touchdowns, helping
pave the way for a victory. So the 49ers aren’t going up against the ‘85 Bears
on Sunday. Other than Rams’ Todd Gurley II, Matt Breida’s likely the most
talented running back that the Cardinals’ defense will be facing up till now.
The second-year running back is averaging 7.6 yards per attempt on the ground,
leading the NFL in that category. If San Francisco can feed Breida the ball at
least 15 times Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , then they’ll be able to move the ball, while keeping Rosen and the Cardinals’ offense — and the 49ers’ shaky defense — off
the field. If Breida finishes the game with at least 100 rushing yards and 15
attempts, the chances of a 49ers’ victory is pretty high.2. Cardinals’ WR Larry
Fitzgerald needs to have a quiet afternoonDespite various ailments, it looks
like veteran wideout Larry Fitzgerald is going to suit up on Sunday, much to the
disappointment of 49ers’ defenders. The Cardinals’ No. 1 receiver has absolutely
torched San Francisco in years past.Last season, Fitzgerald had 12 catches for
132 yards in one game, while he hauled in six catches, 81 yards and a touchdown
in the other matchup. Two seasons ago, the Cardinals’ receiver had 19 catches
for 200 yards and two touchdowns. Historically, Fitzgerald has been a thorn in
the 49ers’ side and he has a chance to be a problem again. Rosen is known to be
an accurate passer and nothing helps a young quarterback like a large target.
San Francisco is likely going to be without corner Richard Sherman, leaving
either Ahkello Witherspoon, Jimmie Ward or Greg Mabin on duty. The trio of
corners will need to slow down Fitzgerald Quarterback Nick Mullens Jersey , otherwise it could be a long afternoon for the 49ers’ defense.3. 49ers need to get off the field on third downsWell, duh
Akash. Obviously, the 49ers’ defense needs to get stops on third downs and force
the Cardinals’ offense off the field, this is mostly common sense. Let’s add
some numbers to it, to spice it up.Till this point in the season, Arizona’s
offense has been the fourth-worst at converting third downs, only moving the
chains 29 percent in a third-down situation. That’s only ahead of Dallas,
Seattle and Buffalo.On the flip side, the 49ers have been middle of the pack
defending on third down. Their opponents are nearly converting 43 percent of the
time — a number that’s not good enough on Sunday. They’re playing an offense
that’s struggling on third down and they’re going to need to get off the field
when they can. San Francisco should — key word should — come away with the win
on Sunday. They are the more talented team, playing at home and if they are to
prove that this rebuild is on the right track, it starts Sunday.
