Golden Nuggets: Bring on the Bengals!

Sunday, December 20th, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, everyone. Today, the San Francisco 49ers will play the Cincinnati Bengals, a team I do not dislike but one that is getting more and more annoying the longer I stay in Dayton, OH. To be fair, I see a lot more Ohio State stuff around here than Bengals stuff, but I do get a few odd looks when I wear a 49ers hat around. I also couldn't care less about college football as a whole, so that stuff is very annoying as well.

But the Bengals are pretty much a nothing team to me as far as I'm concerned. I do admit it will be interesting to see whatever it is AJ McCarron can actually do. He's a massive unknown at this point and I'm really not sure what to expect. It wouldn't surprise me if the 49ers shut him down completely, nor would it be shocking if he came out and massacred the 49ers' hapless defense.

Should be fun though, right? Onto your links! Go Niners!
