Week 1 is finally upon us 49ers fans as the Red & Gold go on the road this week, facing Chicago in the opening slate of games Sunday.

Highlighted by a matchup between second-year quarterbacks, Trey Lance and Justin Fields, Sunday’s NFC clash should be a good one with both players eager to lead their respective team to a 1-0 start.

Many remember the 49ers jumping up to the No. 3 spot in the 2021 NFL draft to select Lance, a selection some though would be used for Fields. Alas that was not the case as the young QB now prepares his Chicago squad to prove the doubters wrong.

“I don’t take anything personal,” Fields said Wednesday. “I’m happy to be here [Chicago]. I’m glad they passed on me.”

As for his counterpart, Lance is just eager to get out on the gridiron against a different opponent each week.

“Kind of a breath of fresh air for sure. Excited to game-plan for somebody, not kind of just running our training camp scripts and going against our defense. Get to kind of put plays in for certain situations and different things like that. So it’s been an awesome experience,” Lance also said Wednesday.

But before we get to it, how are you going to watch the game Sunday? Well we got you covered.
