49ers vs. Lions game thread: Will the 49ers runaway with this one on the road?

Let’s get fired up about the 2021 season opener here

The more I think about the Trey Sermon situation, the more it boils down to him missing curfew or violating team rules. In addition, he wasn’t listed on the injury report, which means Sermon was a healthy scratch.

Of course, it could be due to something personal, so this could go a few different ways. Kyle Shanahan will be sure to answer this question postgame and fill us in on the details.

Sermon served as the team's de facto starter when Raheem Mostert didn’t practice. When Mostert did play, Sermon still split carries with the first-team offense.

We’ll get to see Dee Ford and Nick Bosa go up against a rookie left tackle and a backup right tackle. I cannot wait to see the team speed for the 49ers on both sides of the ball.

Before the game kicks off, do we have any bold predictions for today? I say the 49ers score on defense or special teams.
