Atlanta Falcons Team News

The Atlanta Falcons are going through a rebuilding and Arthur Smith seems to be doing a decent job. He identified all good things of his team (which there are not many) and they are at 2-3 after five weeks even though they had a very difficult schedule.

The Falcons defense is average. So far they have not limited any opponent below 20 points and that almost certainly won’t be the case this Sunday either. The bigger problem is their offense in which there is almost no talent at all. Tight end Kyle Pitts is probably the only valuable player, but even his season so far has been below average. That’s why Smith insists on run game. Marcus Mariota rarely throws the ball and despite that, he somehow managed to collect four interceptions and three fumbles.

The Falcons will have to play their best game of the season to have a chance against the San Francisco 49ers. Run game is definitely not how they can overcome this opponent, so Mariota will have to throw a lot more, which is never good news for his team.

San Francisco 49ers Team News

The San Francisco 49ers have shown two faces so far. They overcame the Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers and were unexpectedly defeated by the weaker Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos. Continuity of good form is something that Kyle Shanahan will need to work on.

Jimmy Garoppolo has done a solid job since he regained starting quarterback job. The 49ers offense is always extremely imaginative and Shanahan has no problem coming up with fantastic plays. This team’s defense may be the best in the entire NFL and when you add those two together, it’s clear why this team has what it takes to win the Super Bowl. The only question is from which position they will enter the playoffs and what they will do there.

Losing in Chicago and Denver have been a good lesson for the 49ers. They showed that last week when they played very seriously in Charlotte where they destroyed the Panthers. The 49ers expect to do something similar this Sunday in Atlanta.

H2H

These two teams played against each other last season when the 49ers won 31:13 in San Francisco. Before that, they met in 2019 and then it was 29:22 for the Falcons at the same place.

Injuries

Mykal Walker and Cordarrelle Patterson are injured and won’t play for the Atlanta Falcons. Kyle Pitts is questionable.

Jason Verrett, Javon Kinlaw, Arik Armstead, Curtis Robinson, Emmanuel Moseley, Trent Williams and Jimmie Ward are out for the San Francisco 49ers, while Nick Bosa is questionable.

Atlanta Falcons vs. San Francisco 49ers Prediction

The 49ers have a few important absences on defense, but if Bosa is able to play, that will make up for any deficiencies. Even without him, they are able to play at decent level. Simply put, the Falcons’ biggest advantage is run game and that won’t work here. On the other hand, the 49ers will score more than 20 points without any problem, possibly more than 30.
