The 49ers have had a fairly good season so far, only having two losses under their belt. As of their latest loss, the team sits at a five out of seven score. One of them being the Cleveland Browns, with a final score of 19-17. And the second consecutive loss to the Minnesota Vikings, with a final score of 22-17. The team seems to be off to a better start than last season, which had their earliest loss at game three to the Philadelphia Eagles.
However, this season’s preseason games against the Los Angeles Raider, Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Chargers ended in a 1-3. With the only win being against the Broncos. So the potential that the 49ers have this season appears to be much different and one of not backing down. The team’s greatest asset right now is their star quarterback Brock Purdy, however it’s speculated that he has been on the decline this season so far. This can be concerning for how early in the season it is. Nonetheless, the team is on a losing streak and even a two game streak can make a difference this early in the season. So it will be critical for the team to pull through with a win, as to not continue the losing streak.
We will see if the team continues on a losing streak for the next game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday October 29th. This year is showing to be more consistent right off the bat, and may prove to be a great season for the 49ers.
