San Francisco 49ers need to take Tennessee Titans seriously
"Everybody's focused on Tennessee right now," said Colin Kaepernick, the 49ers’ starting quarterback. "They're a good team, they have a good defense and that's where our focus needs to be."
Fox analyst Tim Ryan said that they were prepared, considering their performance.
"With this team and how they've built the East Coast process into their schedule, they'll be alright," he said. "On top of that, they realized they're not good enough to overlook anybody."
The 49ers were the Super Bowl runners up last season. After making a clumsy start this season with 1-2, they have done a good job covering up by winning the last three games in a row.
The NFL has hosted regular season games at the Wembley Stadium starting from 2007. Since then, there have only been three teams who have played at their home before playing at the stadium. Pittsburgh Steelers, Minnesota Viking and the San Francisco 49ers are the teams who have done that.
It is important that the 49ers focus on the Titans rather than start worrying about the match against Jacksonville Jaguars the next Sunday. The Titans have lost two matches while their starting quarterback Jake Locker was unfit to play die to hip and knee injuries and now there are chances he may be ready to play against the San Francisco 49ers.
"They're a solid team, and they can beat you if you're not on your 'A' game," said 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis.
Coach Jim Harbaugh had something to remember from history the last time they went on a road game at Cincinnati and Philadelphia.
"It's a matter of, same way we treated those Youngstown trips ... and that's concentrating on taking care of our business today and handling that," he said.
The 49ers won’t be at home and certainly not comfortable when they will be at Nashville as they only played there in 2005. They will be going there after London. They aren’t looking to stay there long either.
"Whether we're in Youngstown, London or (Santa Clara), it really doesn't change my relationship with my teammates," the teams quarterback Kaepernick said. "That's not really a factor. We're always together here as well, but you're sleeping in the same hotel instead."
