2. Nick Mullens Has A Quality Spot Start For The 49ers

Assuming that Jimmy Garoppolo does miss a week due to the ankle injury he suffered in Week 2, Nick Mullens will get the start. While he isn’t going to “wow” anyone with his performance, it will be a quality start.

No one should expect the offense to struggle against New York. Mullens will throw for 200 yards, a touchdown, and no interceptions. Taking care of the football will be his main job. He will be a quality game manager and will not be a negative for the 49ers.

1. San Francisco Pulls Out A Win Over The Giants

Despite missing so many key pieces, the 49ers will win their second game in a row. The Giants are not a great football team and not having Saquon Barkley is a major negative. San Francisco will get the job done this week.

We are predicting that the 49ers will end up winning this game by a final score of 27-20 over the Giants.
