1 of 4

The Cincinnati Bengals are headed to San Francisco to take on the 49ers. Here are some big questions and bold predictions for Sunday’s game.

With a new quarterback and an opportunity to secure a playoff berth, these are exciting times for the Bengals. Cincinnati will be on the road Sunday playing the San Francisco 49ers. The game was originally scheduled to be featured on Sunday Night Football, but was flexed out of primetime because it was not considered an appealing game. However, the situation has changed, and this game could turn out to be more interesting than previously thought.

The Bengals are currently sitting at 10-3 and hold a two-game lead in the AFC North, while the 49ers are last in the NFC West at 4-9. This game may be closer than the records suggest, as Cincinnati will be leaning on backup quarterback A.J. McCarron. McCarron seems motivated, even comparing himself to Tom Brady, and has the faith of his teammates and coaches. Sunday’s game should be interesting to watch, so here are some questions and bold predictions heading into the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and San Francisco 49ers.
