It was another near hit for the San Francisco 49ers, but they dropped another close game and remain one of two winless teams in the NFL. It would be easy to say the Niners are the best team not to win a game, especially when Cleveland is the only competition. The Niners lost their last five games by a total of 13 points and the misery continued with a 26-24 loss to the Redskins last Sunday.
With the exception of a few outbursts, the offense has struggled to put points on the board. After another scoreless outing with Brian Hoyer at the controls, Kyle Shanahan made the switch to rookie C.J. Beathard against the Skins. Hoyer had taken all but one snap this season, completing just 58 percent of his passes for 1,245 with four touchdowns and four interceptions. It took the Niners until their third game to score a touchdown and they went without one in three of their first four games.
We’ll see who Shanahan trots out for the Week 7 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys, but there’s a good chance we see Beathard. Hoyer isn’t the long-term solution at the position and it looks like he isn’t the short-term answer either. The club isn’t going anywhere so the Niners might as well take a good look to see if Beathard has what they want. If not, a top draft pick is well within reach for a franchise quarterback.

Week 6: Redskins 26, 49ers 24
ATS Result: 49ers +12
Over/Under Total Result: Over 46
The pain of another close loss has to be excruciating. For the fifth consecutive game the Niners lost by a field goal or less, keeping them out of the win column but making their backers happy. They covered the 12-point spread and are 4-1 ATS in those five games. Beathard made an appearance and nearly brought the team back, throwing his first touchdown pass with under two minutes remaining to cash the over. The Niners got the ball back, but Beathard tossed a pick on a desperation fourth-down play.
Week 5: Colts 26, 49ers 23 (OT)
ATS Result: Colts -1
Over/Under Total Result: Over 43.5
Hoyer got the Niners back in the game and sent it to OT with a pair of fourth quarter scoring passes. But he and the rest of the offense were AWOL the rest of the game. Robbie Gould is the team’s best weapon, but he never had a chance in the extra session after an interception got the Niners the football. Having a first down at midfield, the Niners moved backwards and were forced to punt, giving the Colts a chance at the win, and they took it
Week 4: Cardinals 18, 49ers 15 (OT)
ATS Result: 49ers +6
Over/Under Total Result: Under 43
It was another close loss for the Niners and that made their backers happy with a third straight cover win. But their inability to score a touchdown for the third time in four outings proved costly when the Cards stole one in overtime. Frisco took the lead in OT with a three on the first possession, giving the Cards one chance and a little over two minutes. The defense went into prevent mode and the Cards struck for six, putting an end to an ugly afternoon.
Week 3: Rams 41, 49ers 39
ATS Result: 49ers +3
Over/Under Total Result: Over 40.5
The Niners never led, but they actually had a chance to win the game after scoring a late touchdown to pull within two points. They missed the two-point conversion for the tie, but recovered the on-side kick. However, Hoyer fired three incompletions and was sacked on fourth down to end the drama. The Niners did cover the spread for the second straight game and easily cashed the over for the first time.
Week 2: Seahawks 12, 49ers 9
ATS Result: 49ers +13.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 42
It’s hard to win games and cash the over if you can’t score touchdowns and that’s where the Niners are. They failed to hit paydirt for the second straight game, using three field goals to account for their point total. They ran just 48 plays and possessed the ball for 23 minutes, leaving the defense hanging. Eventually the unit crumbled and the Niners couldn’t get the upset, though they did cover.
Week 1: Panthers 23, 49ers 3
ATS Result: Panthers -4.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 45.5
Even the offensive prowess of Shanahan couldn’t coax a touchdown out of this group. There were some concerns regarding the quarterback position with Brian Hoyer taking over as the starter. He’s had decent numbers at several of his stops, but winning has always been difficult for the veteran. He failed to get the Niners into the end zone Sunday and they managed just a field goal. S.F. played a stingy style of defense, but the unit collapsed after the offense didn’t offer any help.
Preseason Record: 2-2
ATS Record: 3-1
Over/Under Total Record: 3-1
Where to begin with this team? The Niners were dead last in points and yards allowed per game and they finished 31st in yards gained. They lost to Chicago and the Jets, they dropped nine games by double figures and they went just 5-11 ATS. There is no place to go but up for this team, it just might take some time for the elevator to hit the top floor.
