Opponent Profile: 49ers Take On Rams For The Second Time In A Month

First up for the 49ers after their bye is the St. Louis Rams. After beating them less than a month ago, San Francisco should have no problems doing it again in front of their own home crowd.

Opponent Profile: Unlucky St. Louis Rams Host 49ers In NFC West Showdown

The 49ers will look to keep their winning streak alive when they go on the road this Sunday to take on the St. Louis Rams. San Francisco is the better team, but is playing a team that is familiar with them, and should give the 49ers all they can handle.

Opponent Profile: San Diego Chargers Present Big Challenge For Toothless Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have a new head coach, for now, and they’ve just had their bye week. How will they fare against the 4-1 San Diego Chargers at home this week? Well, the Bolts are on a roll, and they look very good. The exact opposite can be said of Silver & Black, so don’t expect things to suddenly get better for Oakland now that Dennis Allen has been fired.

49ers Will Face Similar Test From Week 1 As Bears Come To Town

The first NFL regular season game played at Levi Stadium has the San Francisco 49ers hosting the Chicago Bears. On paper, Chicago is very similar to San Francisco’s week 1 opponent the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears have an offense that can score points at will, an inconsistent passer and a less than spectacular defense.

Raiders Hope For Brighter Days In Week 2 Matchup Against Texans

Week Two looks tougher for the Oakland Raiders now that the Houston Texans posted their first win in almost a year. Can the Raiders win their home opener? Sure, they can, if both the offense and the defense play better than they did in Week One against the New York Jets on the road.

New York Jets Still A Road Challenge For Oakland Raiders In 2014

The Oakland Raiders, projected to finish last in the AFC West division this year by pretty much everyone, open the 2014 regular season next Sunday against the New York Jets on the road, and it could be the beginning of a long season for the Silver & Black.

49ers And Cowboys Revisit Rivalry In 2014 Season Opener

The 49ers and Cowboys meet in Week 1, and the winner will be the team whose defense steps up. While the 49ers defense is top tier, they will be without some key players and going against an elite offense.

Philly Has A Huge Quarterback Problem As They Travel To Oakland

The Philadelphia Eagles were expected to compete for not only a playoff spot this season, but the NFC’s spot in the Super Bowl. Now, they’re sitting at 3-5 and down to their third string quarterback who is just a rookie out of USC. The Oakland Raiders are hoping to have a field day with Matt Barkley leading the Eagles to the Coliseum.
