Oct 25, 2023, 3:30 PM
Trouble in paradise? That may be the case, as the 49ers dropped their second-straight game of the season Monday night.
On the latest episode of the “Return of the Empire podcast,” Amil Fragoso and Nate Littlefield recap the 49ers’ Week 7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. They also discuss the 49er defenses’ worst performance of the season, Brock Purdy’s costly interceptions and where the Red & Gold need to improve with the trade deadline approaching. Also, is Week 8’s clash with the Cincinnati Bengals a must-win at home?
All that & much more on the Return of the Empire.
“The NFL will humble you every step of the way,” defensive end Nick Bosa said after Week 7’s loss. “Getting off to a 5-0 start, you kind of get that confidence that we are, who we need to be. But the NFL does it. [It has] good players, good schemes. And we’re gonna face another good team this week. So, gotta be ready.”
