With the NFL season heading to week three, the San Francisco 49ers will headline Sunday Night Football against the Denver Broncos. The Niners will go into the game with Jimmy Garoppolo as quarterback due to Trey Lance’s season-ending injury. San Francisco will also face a weak Broncos team, even with a QB upgrade in Russel Wilson. The Niners have the weapons in offense and defense to win if they execute it right. San Fran also has more proper coaching than the Broncos, with Kyle Shanahan with more experience than Nathaniel Hackett. The Niners have a great shot at winning this Sunday night game against the Broncos with a great coach and scheming.
A look at the 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers, who are 1-1 this early in the season, look to show why they are a potential playoff team against the Denver Broncos. San Francisco, despite losing Elijah Mitchell to injury, the combination of Jeffrey Wilson and Deebo Samuel is carrying the load. The weapons for Jimmy G also remain the same, with a potential return of George Kittle. Along with the offense, the Niner’s defense with Bosa, Warner, and company can outlast the Broncos’ offense. If all else fails, the return of veteran QB Jimmy Garoppolo could be a calming presence. The 49ers have the advantage in this game against the Broncos with the offensive playstyle of Kyle Shanahan.
Looking at the Broncos
The Denver Broncos, on the other hand, have the potential to beat the 49ers in this Sunday Night game. The Broncos maintain a strong defense with Bradley Chubb on the defensive front, even if they lose Pat Surtain II. Even if its day to day, they might lose him for the game. The offense for the Broncos shows the potential to be great with a strong line and a great running game in Javonte Williams. Denver also has great wideout options with Courtland Sutton and Jerry Judy, with the man leading them QB Russel Wilson. The thing that might cost them the game is the man calling the plays, Nathaniel Hackett. Nathaniel Hackett has shown, in the first two weeks, is not a good head coach. Hackett’s playcalling and failure in clock management could potentially hurt the Broncos in the end. The 49ers will possibly take advantage of the Broncos’ flaws all game.
Overview of Sunday night for San Francisco
The Niners have a great chance of winning this Sunday night game due to their better team and playcalling. San Fran has a better system for their team to win big games. The Broncos, on the other end, while a great team, currently has an incompetent head coach; and systems holding the team back. San Francisco has a lot going in for them, and this win could help solidify them as a top team.
