Join Matt Andruscavage and former 49ers running back Dexter Carter as they break down Sunday’s victory against the Cincinnati Bengals as well as preview this week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The San Francisco 49ers have started the year 2-0 for the first time since 2012 and for the first time since 1989, they opened with two straight road victories. They completely dismantled the Bengals from start to finish and they are looking like one of the top teams in the NFL.
They now have a chance to open the season 3-0 for the first time since 1998 as they face the Steelers, who are now without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who is out for the season.
Sunday’s game didn’t come without some adversity as left tackle Joe Staley has a broken fibula and will miss six to eight weeks. It appears rookie Justin Skule will be the starter this Sunday and he will have his hands full. The 49ers will have to do all they can to help the left side and out-scheme and out-coach the Steelers.
