Commanders vs 49ers Highlights
When these two teams met in San Francisco in December 2020, the Commanders were able to engineer a 23-15 victory against a 49’ers team that was missing their starting quarterback. 9’ers fans will be hoping that isn’t the case this year, with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance available to provide a combination of youthful energy and league experience that the team was missing on that Sunday two years ago.
The home team has a 21-12 advantage over the away team in the series, but their recent form belies this fact, as they have won only four of their last ten games combined. In what is almost never a high-scoring game, the away team will be looking to improve upon the score of 0 that they recorded in October 2019. But their chances of doing so will be contingent on whether or not their starting quarterback Carson Wentz or his backup, Taylor Heinecke, are healthy enough to play.
Those seeking to bet on NFL games might look to a home win in this one. The 49’ers boast a defense that proved equally as effective in the air and on the ground in the 2021 season. They also had the 7th best offense in the league over the course of the regular season. Washington Commanders vs San Francisco 49’ers might prove to be the festive treat that we didn’t know we needed!
