The talk around the NFL after this weekend has been that the 49ers sit on top of the NFC standings with a 3-0 record. The real question then becomes, when will they actually lose a game? Let’s go down the schedule:

Cleveland Browns @ San Francisco 49ers- The Browns just played a dominant game against a Baltimore Ravens team that started the season strong, but I just can’t see them coming out west and beating a 49ers team coming off a bye. 49ers win

San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Rams - LA will probably have louder 49er fans than Levis so the Rams won’t have much of a homefield advantage. Also, Jared Goff tends to fold under pressure. 49ers win

San Francisco 49ers @ Washington - Washington is a mess and they haven’t won a game yet. 49ers win

Carolina Panthers @ San Francisco 49ers - With Cam Newton injured the Panthers are riding the Kyle Allen roller coaster. Yes, he’s won games for them, but he turns the ball over way too much. 49ers win

San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals - The Cardinals haven’t won a game yet this season. That could change next week against a struggling Cincinnati Bengals team, and they do tend to give us trouble, but this is where the Cardinals’ win streak against the 49ers ends. 49ers win

Seattle Seahawks @ San Francisco 49ers - 49ers beat the Seahawks last year with a backup QB. No reason they can’t do it again with Jimmy Garoppolo at the helm. 49ers win

Arizona Cardinals @ San Francisco 49ers - 49ers win in Arizona, 49ers win at home. 49ers win

Green Bay Packers @ San Francisco 49ers - I don’t know if injuries have finally caught up to Aaron Rodgers or if it’s because he’s having trouble adjusting to the scheme, but something is not right with that offense. 49ers win

San Francisco 49ers @ Baltimore Ravens - Now this is where I see the 49ers’ first loss of the season. It’s just hard travelling to the east coast for a 10am game. 49ers lose

I also think the 49ers lose the next game in New Orleans, but by my count that puts the 49ers at 11 wins before they get their first loss. Obviously I’m biased with my assessment of each opponent, but trying to look at it objectively, I think my prediction is actually pretty reasonable. What do you think? When are the 49ers most likely to lose their first game?
