The last time these two teams met, Charles Woodson took on Vernon Davis one-on-one most of the afternoon. Davis broke out, catching six passes for 106 yards and a touchdown, but much of his production came in the second half after the 49ers were well behind.
I expect to see these two locked up again on Sunday, and given the talent the 49ers have brought in on the perimeter, it will be crucial for Woodson to keep Davis under wraps. If he doesn't, Alex Smith will find his tight end for some monster gains, which will open up everything else for the offense.
The biggest game of Week 1 is full of dynamic playmakers on both sides of the ball for both teams. I'll be shocked if we don't have a full slate of highlights to refer to by the time it's all over, and I'm expecting the game to be tight all the way through.
Who will win? We'll find out soon enough.
