On the SF 49ers podcast with Jeremiah:
#1 This is the first time in 19 years (2001) that the New England Patriots have had a 2-3 start. They are not at that elite status they once were after quarterback Tom Brady left for Tampa Bay.
#2 The Patriots who host the 49ers this Sunday in Foxborough were without quarterback Cam Newton who returned last Sunday against the Denver Broncos. Newton said his game isn’t where it should be and threw for 157 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.
#3 The 49ers who most likely will not play this Sunday in New England cornerback Richard Sherman (calf) and pass rusher Dee Ford (back) both have missed their last five games.
#4 On Tuesday California Health and Human Services Department gave the orange tier light to Bay Area counties to let fans back in. Santa Clara County said the idea is “unconscionable” and so the 49ers will continue to play 2020 in front of an empty stadium.
#5 49ers are New England Sunday as San Francisco is vying for their fourth win. 49er quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a great outing against the Rams last Sunday how do you see him faring against the Patriots.
