Conceptually, the 49ers and Jets present a matchup of similarly constructed teams. On offense, beleaguered former first-round picks at quarterback take the snaps for teams that value a ground-and-pound style. These are also two teams that pride themselves on defense and the ability to control the opponent.
The 49ers may be a bit less flashy (at least in terms of media coverage), but they executed that plan much more effectively last season. However, the reality is that both teams are 2-1 heading into this critical Week 4 contest.
The Vikings managed to catch the 49ers off-guard in Week 3, and the team will need redeeming performances if they are going to bounce back against New York.
