TOUCHDOWN. The 49ers took the lead back after Arik Armstead forced a fumble. Jimmy G made a couple of plays and found Dante Pettis in the end zone. It’s 24-20.

We have a touchdown. And it’s from the 49ers. Kendrick Bourne catches a nice 22-yard pass to get into 1st and goal and three plays later, Jeff Wilson struts in. It’s 10-6, 49ers. This game is far from over.

The San Francisco 49ers head into Week 3 2-0 and ready to have their home opener! It’s time to keep this winning thing going as they go to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Things get going this afternoon at 1:25 PM PT. The game will air on CBS. Greg Gumbel and Trent Green will be calling the game.
The 49ers started sloppy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1, but they quickly turned things around in Week 2 with a convincing win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Even if that was a bad Bengals team, the fact it was a blowout in Cincinnati makes it impressive any way you look at it. The game wasn’t without some issues, left tackle Joe Staley broke his fibula and will be out and Dee Ford saw some issues with his knee that kept him out. After the game in unrelated injury news, Trent Taylor was placed on IR further hurting the 49ers.
The 49ers now hold their first opener at Levi’s Stadium and will look to build on this good 2-0 start and keep things going against a Ben Roethlisberger-less Pittsburgh Steeler squad. After this game, the 49ers will go into their bye week and it couldn’t come at a better time with the injuries listed above.
The Steelers have had their own issues to deal with, namely coming out of the gate at 0-2, yet that’s not the main crux of their storylines. In the 2019 offseason, they had to depart with Mr. Big Chest AKA the wide receiver formally known as Antonio Brown. JuJu Smith Schuster has come in to helm No. 1 duties, but the loss of Brown, while understandable given his antics, hurts. The Steelers were embarrassed in Week 1 against the New England Patriots and then lost Roethlisberger for the season in Week 2 against he Seattle Seahawks. Mason Rudolph will make his first start at the QB position Sunday and that brings a ton of question marks. The Steelers offense hasn’t been good with Roethlisberger, but Rudolph has no film on him, which can offer an advantage.
The 49ers will be without wide receiver Jalen Hurd, running back Tevin Coleman and tackle Joe Staley. Free safety Jimmie Ward and defensive ends Dee Ford and Nick Bosa are questionable.
The Steelers are without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, linebacker Anthony Chickillo, running back Roosevelt Nix, and linebacker Vince Williams.
