How to Watch 49ers vs Bills on Monday Night Football December 7, 2020




, ,

The imaginary stadium is modelled and rendered.

The 8-3 Buffalo Bills have been stampeding through their opponents this season and look to keep their domination alive in week 13 against the 5-6 San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. Led by QB Josh Allen, the Buffalo Bills have become one of the most exciting teams in the league to watch. Their innovative play-calling and utilization of trick plays have kept defenses honest. 

The 49ers have had a disappointing season so far, as they are suffering from the dreaded “Super Bowl hangover.” They are coming off a victory against the Los Angeles Rams that snapped a 3-game losing streak; however, they are in 4th place in a tough NFC West.

Due to gathering restrictions in Santa Clara County, California, the San Francisco 49ers will be hosting the Buffalo Bills at the Arizona Cardinals’ State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. As of today, fans will be prohibited from attending the game in Glendale; however, below you can find out how to watch all the action on Monday Night Football.

Our Prediction: The stampede continues as the Bills add another victory to the win column.

On paper, these two teams seem evenly matched, but the Bills have an advantage. The old adage is that quarterback is the most important position on the field and Josh Allen has been playing levels above any 49ers QB this season. With starting 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo and All-Pro TE George Kittle expected to miss the game due to injuries, San Francisco’s offense will have limited firepower. 49ers backup QB Nick Mullens will get the start again, but he’s thrown 6 interceptions in his last 5 games.

Buffalo has the 10th highest-scoring offense in the league with an average of 27.2 points per game, as they’ll be going against a San Francisco defense that allows 23.1 points per game. Combine that statistical advantage with poor QB play from the 49ers, and it’s very possible that we may see a route on Monday night. Bills win 33-17.
