It's game time! The San Francisco 49ers are home facing the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15. The game kicks off at 1:25 p.m. PT on CBS, led by a crew of Sperod Dedes, Solomon Wilcots, and Jay Feely.
The 49ers are 4-9, and are dealing with some notable injuries. Left guard Alex Boone, inside linebacker Michael Wilhoite, and outside linebacker Aaron Lynch are all inactive. This is the second straight week the 49ers will be without Lynch, which is a problem for the pass rush. The unit welcomes the 10-3 Bengals, who will be starting quarterback AJ McCarron for the first time this season. He came on in relief of Andy Dalton last week, and will face a 49ers defense that has performed much better at home than on the road.
We'll have a few threads throughout the course of the game, and a recap immediately after. One thing I have added to the threads this year is the 49ers media Twitter list. If you cannot watch the game, you can follow some of the updates in there/ We'll have plenty to break down after the game, but for now, here's your first quarter game thread. Along with it is a rundown of pertinent information related to the game.
