This is a bad matchup for the Jets. The 49ers do everything better than the Jets, who will drop to 0-1 in LWR -- Life Without Revis.
|49ERS 23, JETS 17
The Jets looked really bad in Miami, despite the final score. The Niners are too good to allow themselves to be beaten by inferior opponents in two consecutive weeks.
|49ERS 23, JETS 13
The Niners' defense is suffocating. Alex Smith doesn't make mistakes and it will take some more time for the Jets to mentally get over losing Revis.
|49ERS 24, JETS 10
It's bad enough the Jets will be playing their first game without Revis, but the 49ers will also be angry coming off a disappointing loss to the Vikings.
|49ERS 34, JETS 17
Without Darrelle Revis for the first week, the Jets will struggle on defense, which has been their strong suit.
|49ERS 27, JETS 13
No Revis and no offense vs. the 49ers' stout defense. There's nothing else to say.
|49ERS 30, JETS 17
San Francisco is really good and really angry after dropping an unexpected one in Minnesota. They're going to take it out on the Revis-less Jets.
|49ERS 23, JETS 7
The Jets' offense is not ready for this kind of D.
|49ERS 28, JETS 10
Mark Sanchez doesn't have enough weapons to score on the tough San Francisco D. Two Niners TDs will come off turnovers.
|49ERS 27, JETS 6
The Niners with a chip plus no Revis equals blowout-city.
|49ERS 17, JETS 13
The Jets can still hang with the 49ers minus Revis. But late in the game, when they need a score, it will be impossible to come by.
|49ERS 27, JETS 21
The Jets will struggle against best defense in the NFL. Smith won't light up the scoreboard but will get enough for a Niner's win.
|49ERS 23, JETS 17
In the end, the Jets won't quite manufacture enough points.
