NFL San Francisco 49ers 2023 Preview

What’s in store for the 2023 San Francisco 49ers? The 2022 season was a strange one for the 49ers. They were expected to do well in the season (they won 13 games), but that was supposed to be under quarterback Trey Lance. It was their third quarterback, rookie Brock Purdy who finished the season, winning all five of his regular season starts. Purdy is famous for being the last pick of the 2022 NFL Draft (262nd overall), making him that year’s Mr. Irrelevant. 

Purdy won his first two playoff games against the Seahawks (Wildcard game) and the Cowboys (Divisional round). In the NFC Championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles, he suffered an injury to his right elbow which kept him from throwing more than 10 yards. 

They lost that game, but if Purdy is the starting quarterback this season, there is a chance he will again meet the Eagles in the NFC Championship game so we can have a ‘do over’ of last year’s championship.

In their new schedule, the 49ers will end their season with only one team in their last five games having made it to the playoffs last year. They have five prime-time games including one on Thanksgiving and another on Christmas. That’s the first time this franchise has ever played those two holidays. Their schedule should help them towards winning as many games as they did last season.

San Francisco is in a weak division (along with the Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, and Seattle Seahawks), and could get six wins from there. They will be playing games against the NFC East. That division has the Philadelphia Eagles who were in the finals last season, but other than them, the division has been on a rollercoaster ride of consistency over the last few years. The 49ers could see a further three wins from there. That leaves them to win another three games to beat the over/under odds. That seems like an easy bet to make.
