The 49ers are back on the road, where they've fared even worse than they have at home this season. The two blowouts they've endured so far have been at Seattle's Qwest Field, and Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium. They lost a last-second-field-goal heart breaker at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
The Carolina Panthers are currently 0-5, and the 49ers can understand just how hungry that will make a team.
Carolina might be thinking this struggling San Francisco team will provide them with just the opportunity they need to get their first win.
San Francisco is far from satisfied with their 1-5 record, and are looking to improve on last weeks success, and prove (to themselves and everyone else as well) that they can win on the road.
A young and rebuilding Panthers team has an uphill climb in this one, and the 49ers should be playing one of the weaker teams on their schedule this year.
As the weekend approaches, take a look at who these Carolina fellas are.
