2019 Schedule
2-0, 1st in NFC West
Garoppolo has himself a day with 3 TDs (0:47)

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

For the first time since 2012, the 49ers are 2-0 to open the season and they did it by going on the road to the eastern time zone and winning by a combined 38 points. It's too early to start trumpeting these Niners as a playoff contender but if they wanted to be one, they were always going to need a quick start as. Since the current playoff format began in 1990, teams that start 2-0 make the playoffs 61.3 percent of the time. That drops to 41.4 percent for 1-1 teams. "It's huge, I felt like we really needed to start this season on a hot start," fullback Kyle Juszczyk told me after the game. "If we can go get another one next week, go into the bye week 3-0, there's really no words for that. That's such a huge thing." If the Niners can beat banged-up Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3, they'll be 3-0 for the first time since 1998.

Garoppolo throws 3 TDs, 49ers roll over Bengals 41-17

Jimmy Garoppolo tied his career high with three touchdown passes Sunday, and the San Francisco 49ers completed a sweet and satisfying week in the Buckeye State with a 41-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals that left them unbeaten for the long...

The 49ers put together an impressive first half on both sides of the ball to take a 24-10 halftime lead. Coach Kyle Shanahan hasn't hesitated to dive deep into his bag of tricks and he's set his offense up for a lot of success, which can be seen in their 291 total yards and 8.8 yards per play average. Having Shanahan at the controls has really taken the heat off QB Jimmy Garoppolo as he returns from a torn ACL and made for some easy, confidence-building throws the first two weeks. The second-half lead should also bode well for the 49ers pass rush, which should have a lot of opportunities against the Bengals backup tackles in the final 30 minutes.

49ers rookie DE Nick Bosa (ankle) is active today against the Bengals. Having Bosa could be very important considering the Bengals are starting backups at tackle. Favorable matchups there for Bosa and fellow DE Dee Ford to potentially have a big day.

The 49ers inactives today against the Bengals: WR Trent Taylor, WR Jalen Hurd, RB Tevin Coleman, OL Daniel Brunskill, QB C.J. Beathard, FS Jimmie Ward, CB Jason Verrett.

The 49ers promoted RB Jeff Wilson Jr. to the active roster from the practice squad. To make room, the team waived rookie TE Kaden Smith. Wilson offers depth behind Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert with Tevin Coleman (ankle) out Sunday. The Niners hope to bring Smith back to the practice squad when and if he clears waivers.
