San Francisco 49ers Tickets for Sale
The San Francisco 49ers were established in 1946 and they play all their home games in Levi’s Stadium located at 4900 Marie P DeBartolo Way in Santa Clara, California. The football stadium has a seating capacity of 68,500 with 176 executive suites. Jed York owns the franchise, Jim Tomsula is head coach, a position he has held since January 2015. The 49ers are members of the West division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). LB NaVorro Bowman returned to the field after 19 months out of the game and what an amazing return he compiled three tackles, including two for loss. Backup QB #2 Blaine Gabbert is a key building player for the tea this year as Coach Jim Tomsula says “We’re building a team, in terms of the on-the-field play and the team – and Blaine Gabbert, that’s a beautiful piece” Tomsula is sure that Gabbert is a key block on his revamped roster. Let’s hope QB Colin Kaepernick and his new speedster WR Torrey Smith are working out the kinks as they struggle to get synced and both the players and coaches are sure with the skill of these athletes that will not take long at all. Coach Tomsula is trying to take some pressure off former rugby league star, turned RB, Jarryd Hayne and try to control how hyped up fans and players are about his exceptional performance. Hayne’s performance to date has fans and his teammates very excited about the possibilities a player of his caliber will bring to the football field, Hayne is a world class athlete.
49ers 20 - Cardinals 17
In what proved to be Jim Harbaugh’s last game as the 49ers head coach, his team pulled out a 20-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
While San Francisco (8-8) was already eliminated from the playoffs prior to the matchup, Arizona was playing to determine their seed and it was a hard fought game on both sides. Heading into halftime, the 11-5 Cardinals had the lead by four thanks to two Ryan Lindley to Michael Floyd touchdowns and the defense holding the 49ers to two second quarter field goals.
Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback that Harbaugh promoted in 2012 threw the go-ahead three yard touchdown pass to Bruce Miller late in the third quarter and running back Frank Gore ran for 144 yards on 25 carries to cap off another 1,000 yard season. 49er wideout Anquan Boldin also eclipsed 1,000 yards receiving on the season thanks to a 76-yard touchdown in the first quarter.
Now coach-less with a heap of talent, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for this 49er team. They have a brand new venue in Levi’s Stadium and fans that will continue to go out and purchase 49er tickets for years to come.
The Cardinals are headed to the post season as the fifth seed in the NFC. They will face the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, January 3rd on the road in what should prove to be a great physical matchup.
49ers 35 - Chargers 38
The 9-6 San Diego Chargers came back from a 21 point deficit to oust the 7-8 49ers from playoff contention in over time by a score of 38-35.
San Francisco dominated the first half of the game with a first quarter 52-yard Frank Gore touchdown run and two second quarter rookie Bruce Elllington touchdowns along with a 49-yard pick-six in the second quarter. San Diego’s slim playoff chances seemed to be slipping away as quarterback Phillip Rivers, who sat out Wednesday’s practice with chest and back injuries just couldn’t get anything done.
Whatever adjustments and half time speech occurred in the locker room seemed to light a fire under the Chargers and they were a different team in the third and fourth quarters, scoring 14 points in each to create overtime. Nearly five minutes into overtime, Nick Novak knocked in a 40-yard field goal sealing their victory and keeping those playoff hopes alive in San Diego.
Rivers finished the contest with 356 passing yards and four touchdowns, with three interceptions. In the loss, San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick ended with 114 yards in the air and another 151 on the ground with two touchdowns. The 49ers blew their second game when leading by 21 or more at the half and their fourth straight game under embattles coach Jim Harbaugh.
The 49ers stay home and play a meaningless game for them against the division rival Arizona Cardinals who already have a playoff spot but are playing for home field advantage. San Diego will head to Arrowhead Stadium to play in front of Kansas City ticket holders in Week 17 and will earn a playoff berth either by winning outright or a tie and a Baltimore loss.
49ers 17 - Redskins 13
In a game the 49ers desperately needed to win to keep their post season hopes alive, they defeated the struggling Washington Redskins 17-13 with a late fourth quarter touchdown from running back Carlos Hyde.
In front of a home crowd packed with fans that purchased 49ers tickets to the new Levi’s Stadium, San Francisco advances to a 7-4 record but once again struggled to defeat a weaker opponent on their home turf. Earlier this season, they already lost to St. Louis 13-10. The Niners had gained some momentum with road wins at New Orleans and The Giants but almost squandered it with sloppy play on Sunday.
Hyde’s game winning touchdown was redemption after coughing up the football in the first play of the second quarter and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw an interception midway through the third quarter.
Kaepernick did finish the game with 256 yards in the air and a touchdown while the Redskins defense held the Niners to only 52 yards on the ground between the running back tandem of Frank Gore and Hyde. 49ers defense only allowed Robert Griffin III to throw for 106 yards with zero touchdowns.
The Niners currently sits a second place tie with the Seattle Seahawks in the tough NFC West and will now have a quick turnaround to face their division rival Seahawks on Thursday night. The 3-8 Redskins are currently in the basement of the NFC West with the Giants and will meet the Colts next Sunday in Indy.
San Francisco 49ers 16 - New York Giants 10
The San Francisco defense lead the charge in a 16-10 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday in New Jersey. The loss is the Giants’ fifth straight and brings their 2014 record to 3-7 while the up-and-down 49ers stand at 6-4.
What started out as promising with Giants quarterback Eli Manning connecting with tight end Larry O’Donnell for a 19-yard touchdown on their opening possession, turned to mistakes and turnovers, resulting in the addition of one field goal for the remainder of the game.
The name Eli Manning has been synonymous with interception in the recent past and this game piled on to that sentiment. After the dust settled, the 49ers defense picked off Manning a whopping five times, the last one providing the nail in the Giants coffin. Manning had driven the ball down from the Giants 35 yard line to the San Francisco four, where they sat with a first and goal in the closing minutes of the game. Three fade patterns fell incomplete and Manning tried to force the ball on fourth down, but Niners defensive back Dontae Johnson tipped the ball and rookie linebacker Chris Boreland came up with it, sealing the Giants fate.
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick finished the day with 193 yards and a touchdown while running backs Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde shared duties carrying the rock.
In Week 12, the Giants will face their NFC East mates Dallas Cowboys in what should be a solid matchup. Fans always come out and buy Giants tickets when an NFC rival comes to town. The 49ers will play Washington at home in what should be an interesting game due to the uncertainty in Washington at this time.
Preview 49ers vs Saints
Both the New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers are sitting at .500 with 4-4 records for the 2014 season. They will face each other this weekend at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans and only one will have a winning record when the dust settles.
Both teams seem to be heading in different directions as the Saints are coming into the matchup with a two game win streak while the 49ers have dropped their last two games. San Francisco will need to figure out how to keep signal caller Colin Kaepernick’s uniform clean as he has been sacked 14 times over the past two weeks, and we all know you can’t win when your quarterback is on his back.
The Saints’ usually high-powered offense struggled at the start of the season but seem to have worked out some of the kinks and quarterback Drew Brees has played sharp over the past few weeks. Mark Ingram has racked up 272 rushing yards over the past two games and adds the balance the Saints offense needs moving forward.
Injuries have plagued both of these teams in the first half of the season and it will be interesting to see how they both handle it not only this week but down the stretch.
New Orleans always seems to draw big crowds to their home games and folks will certainly be lining up to get their Saints tickets for this NFC matchup.
49ers 10 - Rams 13
The NFC West remains cloudy as the St. Louis Rams hung on to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in a nail-biter on Sunday.
The Rams are doing their best to shake up the division by beating the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks on October 19th and then taking down the Niners two weeks later- by a total of five combined points. Rams defenders were able to get to and sack Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick an astounding eight times on Sunday afternoon and hold him to only one touchdown pass.
This defensive battle came down to the final drive, where the 49ers were poised for the go-ahead score. With the ball on the goal line, the Rams read Kaepernick’s mannerisms and anticipated the sneak. They stuffed him short and caused a fumble, recovered by the Rams’ James Laurinaitis with two ticks of the clock left.
Members of the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants who were in the crowd sporting 49ers gear, along with former Head Coach George Seifert who was there to receive franchise hall of fame honors, could not will a victory for the struggling team who was coming off a bye week and suffered an ugly 42-17 loss to the Broncos their last time on the football field.
