Game day is back as the 49ers travel to face the Cincinnati Bengals hoping to bounce back from last week's rough loss to the Dallas Cowboys. During the offseason I generally was quick to move this one into the win column. However, the Bengals are showing a whole lot of life and this is likely going to be a tough game.
We get a chance to see if the 49ers offense can build on the positives we saw in the Cowboys game and whether the secondary will get a boost from the return of Dashon Goldson and Shawntae Spencer. Plenty of opportunities here for some more answers.
