The 49ers are coming off a tough loss to the Seahawks and need a win to stay in the thick of the NFC playoff picture. San Francisco also has significant injury concerns, with Elijah Mitchell and Deebo Samuel trending towards missing time. The 49ers defense has started to round into from over the last few weeks and could be the key to winning this game.
The Bengals also have some injury issues, mainly with Joe Burrow and Joe Mixon. The quarterback has a finger issue and played through the problem in the Week 13 loss to the Chargers, while Mixon sustained a neck injury. The running back says he can play through the problem, so that’s good news. The Bengals have a chance here to get back in the AFC North race with the Ravens faltering last week against the Steelers.
