San Francisco’s pass surge stayed tenacious a week ago against the Bengals. It recorded another six quarterback hits and three sacks of Andy Dalton. However, it was any semblance of Arik Armstead, Solomon Thomas and Ronald Blair who dialed up the weight. The 49ers presently have six cautious linemen with at any rate one full sack through two games. For the good of comparison, this is the all out number of protective linemen that recorded one or more sack for San Francisco all of last season.
This profundity has been a noteworthy concentration for cautious facilitator Robert Saleh. Truth be told, the 49ers included another dynamic guarded lineman in Jullian Taylor a week ago in lieu of solid cornerback Jason Verrett. Taylor reacted by setting up one quarterback weight in constrained activity.
Sunday speaks to the 49ers’ greatest trial of the period with regards to a contradicting hostile line. Steelers left handle Alejandro Villanueva commanded Jadeveon Clowney a week ago and has been among the best pass defenders in the NFL in the course of the last a few seasons. Dee Ford’s sketchy status (knee) heading into Week 3 is likewise something to watch.
The key here will be to put predictable weight on second-year Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph as he makes his first vocation customary season start. In the event that the 49ers can do that with a base four-man pass surge like we saw against Cincinnati, it will prompt a long evening for Rudolph against what has demonstrated to be a forceful 49ers resistance in a threatening situation at Levi’s Stadium.
Assault The Weak Spots

The expansion of Minkah Fitzpatrick is going to support Pittsburgh’s battling barrier. The group procured the previous Miami Dolphins star cautious back late Monday night in a blockbuster exchange. He promptly turns into the Steelers’ best player in the auxiliary. However, we don’t know exactly the amount of a job Fitzpatrick will have in his presentation. When he plays, it will be at free wellbeing.
In the event that Fitzpatrick is a restricted member, San Francisco must assault what are extensive shortcomings on Pittsburgh’s protection. That incorporates getting the show on the road to George Kittle early and regularly. Contradicting quarterbacks have set up about 1,000 yards with a 71 percent finishing rate and 117.1 passer rating when focusing on tight finishes against the Steelers in the course of the last 18 games.
Jimmy Garoppolo and Co. ought to likewise assault the limits with Marquise Goodwin and Deebo Samuel. He’s finished 12-of-16 goes for 188 yards when focusing on the two this season. In the interim, the Steelers have yielded a by and large 131.3 passer rating on the season.
Proceed with The Rushing Onslaught

As we noted in front of the Bengals’ down, Week 1 was not very well disposed for the 49ers from a surging point of view. That changed big time against an overmatched Bengals cautious line this previous week. San Francisco set up a silly 259 surging yards on 42 endeavors for a normal of 6.2 yards per surge. It’s the most surging yards the 49esrs have picked up in a solitary game in the course of recent years. Matt Breida went for 121 yards on 12 endeavors. Raheem Mostert included 151 all out yards.
In spite of Pittsburgh’s speculate pass barrier, the 49ers must stay focused on the keep running here. New kid on the block late-round pick Justin Skule is scheduled to begin for the harmed Joe Staley at left handle. That is a not exactly perfect situation. Keeping balance on offense will help San Francisco stay away from a solid Steelers pass surge. On the off chance that the surging assault wavers, T.J. Watt and Co. will have the option to stick their ears back. That would kill the real points of interest San Francisco’s offense has in different territories.

It will be made particularly troublesome this week now that Joe Staley is out as long as possible. In any case, what we’ve seen from the 49ers’ hostile line so far this season has been out and out stunning. Garoppolo has been sacked a fantastic aggregate of one time and hit multiple times through two games. He flaunts the second-most minimal weight rate in the NFL.
With Staley out of the blend, we’re expecting Kyle Shanahan and Co. to draw up confusions and some quite brisk goes against Pittsburgh. Be that as it may, there will be times when Garoppolo needs to drop back in clear passing circumstances. That is the place pass insurance before him turns into a major ordeal.
The arrangement here must be to conceal security toward Skule. This could incorporate not just Kyle Juszczyk assuming a bigger job in pass security, however third string tight end Levine Toilolo being utilized more as an additional hostile linemen. Whichever way we turn it, the four residual starters along San Francisco’s hostile line must get where they left off over the initial two weeks. That incorporates monitors Laken Tomlinson and Mike Person proceeding to play at world class levels.
Try not to Let Up
As San Francisco took it to the Bengals through the initial two quarters a week ago, this one copyist had a foreboding inclination. Would Shanahan and Co. go preservationist on the two sides of the ball and help Cincinnati get again into the game? Not the slightest bit did this work out as intended.
Saleh kept on dialing up various pass-surge bundles on protection. San Francisco drove down the field for a touchdown on its opening drive of the second from last quarter. The course was on.
Confronting an unpracticed quarterback and a reeling Steelers group at home, the 49ers can’t ease up here. They should proceed with the forceful mentality we saw a week ago out of the entryway. It’s that straightforward.

Since Big Ben is sidelined, it’s fairly evident that Rudolph will look Smith-Schuster as a security valve outwardly. All things considered, Ahkello Witherspoon has a gigantic matchup against battling No. 2 collector Donte Moncrief. This could be both great and awful for the Steelers.
Indeed, even with Antonio Brown in the blend last season, Smith-Schuster drove the group in gatherings (111) and accepting yards (1,426). Up to this point this season, the third-year pass catcher has counted 11 gets for 162 yards on 16 targets.
However, JuJu has a troublesome matchup this week against a 49ers cornerback in Richard Sherman who as of now has a pick-six on the season and is looking especially like the Pro Bowler going back to his Seahawks days. We anticipate that Sherman should be focused here, particularly given the way that Witherspoon has yielded a 25 percent catch rate and 16.0 quarterback rating through two games.
George Kittle versus Devin Bush
The desire here must be that Bush will take over for Mark Barron on clear passing downs for the Steelers. He’s their next extraordinary expectation after Pittsburgh has been burnt by tight finishes on an endless circle since the beginning of last season. Sure Minkah Fitzpatrick could likewise assume a job here, yet we’re anticipating that him should see to some degree restricted activity in his Steelers debut.
Regardless of the development of Deebo Samuel, Kittle remains Garoppolo’s go-to fellow. He’s gotten 11-of-13 focuses through two games. At issue here is the absence of game-breaking plays from Kittle that we saw during his record-breaking sophomore season in 2018. On the off chance that the 49ers can get two or three those wow plays, it will be huge for the group in this one.
Alejandro Villanueva versus Nick Bosa
As noted above, Villanueva stays outstanding amongst other left handles in the NFL. He’s one of the essential reasons Pittsburgh’s quarterbacks have been hit only multiple times and sacked an aggregate of multiple times through two games. On the off chance that the 49ers are going to shake Rudolph, it must beginning with Bosa putting weight on his sucker punch.
In the wake of missing numerous practices in the number one spot up to a week ago’s down, Bosa was kept within proper limits by a faulty Bengals hostile line. He didn’t record a solitary quarterback hit or sack in the game. Presently nearing 100 percent wellbeing, Bosa must get where he left off during a ruling standard season debut in Week 1.
