San Francisco 49ers: Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#8)

Last week: 9 (+1)

Record: 2-1

The loss in Minnesota was not unpredictable. Minnesota is an underrated team and it was to be expected that the 49ers would be flat against a “bad” opponent after being anointed after 2 weeks. The loss has allowed them to fall back to earth, which is what they needed, and they should be able to get a bounce back win in New York against the Jets this week. Well coached teams do. They still have the league’s best defense and should make the playoffs, though I still question Alex Smith and this offense’s ability to lead them to a Super Bowl victory, which is why I am ranking them this “low.” They’ll not well rounded enough.
