The 49ers (2-1) may have overlooked the Vikings last week and they struggled on offense in suffering their first loss to the season. The did not look good on both sides of the ball and they face a Jets team this week that did not look good in their last win and lost their defensive leader.
The Jets won in OT last week, but it was against the Dolphins. The win was a costly one, as the lost CB Darrelle Revis to a knee injury and he is out for the season and that is a big loss.
Last week the Jets barely got by the Miami Dolphins winning 23-20 in OT and the 49ers lost to the Minnesota Vikings 24-13.
On the season the 49ers are 2-1 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 1-1-1 and the Jets are 2-1 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 2-1.
Alex Smith leads the 49ers and their 24th ranked passing offense and he had his long streak of not getting picked off snapped last week. Randy Moss only had 3 catches last week and Smith and company may be trouble for a Jets’ pass defense that has been decent, but may really struggle without Revis.
Frank Gore was decent last week, but did not get many touches. Look for that to change facing a New York defense that only ranks 28th in the league. The 49ers need to get back to running the ball and playing solid defense, which are their strengths.
Mark Sanchez passed for over 300 yards last week with 1 TD, but he also threw 2 INT. He does not have the best WR corps and will be facing a San Francisco pass defense that ranks 13th in the league. The 49ers secondary only has 2 INT on the season.
The 49ers were awesome last season defending the run and while they rank 8th in the league in that department they allowed Adrian Peterson and the Vikings to rush for 146 yards last week. Sanchez is not getting much help from RB Shonn Greene, who is averaging less than 3 yards per carry on the young season.
The Jets are at 2-1 tied atop the NFC East with the Bills and the 49ers are tied with the Seahawks at 2-1 1 game behind the surprising Arizona Cardinals.
