It was a disappointing finish to the 2019 season for the San Francisco 49ers. They won the NFC West with a 13-3 record and earned the No. 1 seed in the conference. They picked up a pair of 17-point wins over the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers in the postseason.
The 49ers were set for a Super Bowl matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs and it looked good for about three and a half quarters. San Francisco held a double-digit lead with the ball in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs would end up scoring the final 21 points of the game for the win. The Niners entered the offseason with some work to do to make sure this did not happen again.
On the defensive end, San Francisco will have every started back under contract in 2020 with the exception of DeForest Buckner. This includes Arik Armstead, who signed a major five-year extension with the 49ers. Keeping with the theme of defense, the 49ers drafted Javon Kinlaw with the 14th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The defense in San Francisco is elite led by Armstead and the 2019 Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa. The Niners used the run game to dominate their way to the Super Bowl before running into the dynamic offense of Kansas City. Can San Francisco’s offense keep up in 2020?
With that being said, let’s take a look at their offense heading into the season.
