San Francisco 49ers: Who's Under Pressure to Perform Against the Jets?

After taking some time to let last week's debacle in Minnesota sink in, the 49ers must travel even further from home to take on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. 

Last time these two teams met, Mike Singletary roamed the San Francisco sidelines, and Brett Favre was under center for the Jets. Alas, times have changed.

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.
