Another promising rookie James Richard Garoppolo will also be the eye-catching rookie from the 49ers side who will be committed to perform well against the Lions on this Sunday.
49ers vs Lions Week 2 Game Preview, Prediction
Getting a result on Sunday will do the Lions a lot of good even they have to take a long flight to the West Coast within a very short week to face the 49ers. The Lions suffered a huge defeat under debutant head coach, M. Patricia. He will have to rally his team to shun the discordant symphony they showcased vs the Jets.
On the other hand, 49ers have the opportunity to put their opening week loss behind them when they entertain the Lions in their home opener. With their major concern being injuries but they have enough quality in both the offensive and defensive lines that will lift them to a win in this matchup.
49ers are favorites to win this game. However, they are 4-10 all-time series at home and 4-11 overall. Lions are 1-5 in the past 6 matchday-2 games. So, the Sunday game’s predicted score will be SF 49ers 27 – DET Lions 23.
