The 49ers offense is struggling to get the passing game going through two weeks.

The San Francisco 49ers offense got some big yards from Carlos Hyde in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks, but they also set a franchise record for futility. The 49ers have failed to score a touchdown through the first two games of the season, and it is their longest such stretch to start a season.

Prior to this game, the worst 49ers start was 80 minutes and 8 seconds into the 2010 season.

The 49ers had a chance at a touchdown in Week 1, but Marquise Goodwin dropped a pass. This week, Goodwin had a chance to get a big first down, but had another drop. But overall, the passing game has been fairly dismal for much of these first two games.

The 49ers won’t have much time to get things turned around. They welcome the Los Angeles Rams for Thursday Night Football in Week 3. The Rams defense dominated in Week 1 against Scott Tolzien and the Indianapolis Colts, but couldn’t quite sufficiently contain Kirk Cousins and the Washington offense in Week 2. The return of Aaron Donald helps them, and that will provide plenty of tough work for the 49ers struggling offense.
