The 49ers have won four in a row, but they’ll limp into this game while starting a third-string quarterback. Still, San Francisco is favored by more than a field goal despite turning to Brock Purdy under center. Purdy looked respectable after taking over for an injured Jimmy Garoppolo last week, going 25-of-37 for 210 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Even with Garoppolo out of the mix, it helps that the 49ers are led by a solid defense and strong running game.
Despite holding a mediocre 6-6 record, the Bucs are still in first place of the NFC South. Tampa Bay has won three of its last four outings, most recently completing a comeback victory against the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football. However, the Bucs have lost three straight road games, and this is a tough matchup while traveling out west to take on the 49ers.
