Monday Night Football on ESPN: Cleveland Browns (2-2) at San Francisco 49ers (3-0)
Venue and weather: Levi’s Stadium, Sunny, 77°F at kickoff
Sure, we looked at the rosters of both teams, and the Browns and 49ers were supposed to be good. Still, there was no way of knowing whether or not that would play out on the football field. Then, you have to consider something else.
Even after these two teams, who suddenly have a lot to play for, meet on Monday Night Football, the winner probably still won’t be seen as a viable contender by much of the football world.
The 49ers will take this one, but just be honest. Can you imagine what it would be like to be 4-0 and still know that people will probably believe that the team to beat in the NFC West is the Seahawks or the Rams? That’s a theory that the 49ers are trying to poke holes in. Final Score: Browns 17, Niners 27
