Dec 28, 2014; Santa Clara, CA, USA; San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (7) drops back for a pass against the Arizona Cardinals during the third quarter at Levi
Cincinnati Bengals at San Francisco
The 49ers are on the decline. They lost their head coach to a college job at Michigan. They lost their franchise back when Frank Gore signed with the Colts. They lost receiver Michael Crabtree. They lost Patrick Willis, Chris Borland and Justin Smith to retirement. They also lost Dan Skuta, Mike Iupati, Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox.
In the Bengals’ third prime time game this season they will play the 49ers late in the season. Depending on what the Bengals’ record is, this may be an extremely important game. I am guessing by this time Cincinnati will be 9-4 needing one game to clinch the playoffs, this should be it. If the Bengals win this game they have done what we have never seen them do, make it to the playoffs five straight years.
