The 49ers are in London preparing to take on the Denver Broncos this Sunday at Wembley Stadium.
While the 49ers are 1-6 after losing to a previously un-victorious Carolina Panthers team, Denver is coming off a 59-14 bullying by the Raiders.
First we throw three boatloads of tea into Boston Harbor, and now we give them this? Apologies, England. We can blame the monarchy for the tea thing, but there's not justification for this one.
Nevertheless, a decent contest should ensue between these two cellar dwellers. Denver is clinging to the slightest glimmer of hope, while the 49ers are living on a prayer. Neither franchise will play without some semblance pride on the line.
They're not the best teams in the league, to say the least, but check out the eminent battle as these franchises pull out all the stops in a desperate attempt to steer themselves in a positive direction.
I see your redcoats, and I'll raise you American football, where you pick it up and throw it with your hands.
