New York Jets at San Francisco 49ers

  1. The 49ers are 10-2 all-time versus the Jets, their best record versus any opponent (minimum 10 games). San Francisco is 4-1 all-time in home games versus New York, with their only home loss versus the Jets coming in Week 9 of 1983.
  2. The Jets allowed a season-high 41 points in their 41-10 home loss to the Colts in Week 13. New York totaled just 36 rush yards in the loss, the Jets' second game this season with fewer than 40 rush yards; prior to this season, the last time the Jets recorded multiple games with fewer than 40 rush yards was in 2005 (three).
  3. The 49ers totaled just six net passing yards in their 26-6 Week 13 loss at Chicago, the second-fewest net pass yards by San Francisco in a single game all-time (had minus-10 pass yards at Detroit in Week 4 of 1963).
  4. Matt Forte totaled 54 receiving yards in Week 13, giving him 256 receiving yards on the season to go along with 784 rushing yards. Forte has now totaled at least 750 rush yards and 250 receiving yards in nine consecutive seasons, tied with Ricky Watters (1992 -- 2000) and Curtis Martin (1995 -- 2003) for the longest streak all-time.
  5. With Ryan Fitzpatrick struggling, Bryce Petty entered the game in the third quarter in Week 13. Petty threw two interceptions in his final 18 pass attempts of the game after totaling just one interception in his first 41 career pass attempts. Petty is expected to start at quarterback for the Jets for the remainder of the season.
  6. Colin Kaepernick was sacked five times and totaled just four passing yards in Week 13, becoming just the second player since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger to record fewer than five passing yards in a game in which he was sacked at least five times (the other to do so was Mike Loyd, who totaled zero passing yards and was sacked six times in his final NFL game played in Week 16, 1980 versus the Redskins while playing for the St. Louis Cardinals).

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Bryce Petty and Colin Kaepernick have been the focus of attention leading into Sunday's matchup between the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers.

Don't be surprised, however, if Matt Forte and Carlos Hyde have a greater impact on who wins and loses the battle of last-place teams.

The Jets will be seeking to wash away the embarrassment of a nationally televised blowout while the 49ers attempt to end an 11-game losing streak in a matchup that figures to greatly aid someone's draft position in May.

Petty was named the starter for the Jets' remaining four games shortly after Monday's 41-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

New York coach Todd Bowles announced at his postgame press conference that a decision already had been made before the Indianapolis debacle to give Petty a four-game showcase at the end of the lost season.

Petty relieved starter Ryan Fitzpatrick for the second half of Monday's game. He went 11 of 25 for 135 yards and one touchdown. He threw two interceptions.

"It's a great opportunity for me," Petty told reporters after the game. "Opportunities are far and few between in this league. You have to capitalize on every chance you get."

The second-year pro out of Baylor didn't do that when he got the start in the Week 10 home game against the Los Angeles Rams. He threw for just 163 yards (one touchdown, one interception) in a 9-6 loss.

Like the Jets, the 49ers gave their backup an opportunity in a loss last week.

But unlike the Jets, 49ers coach Chip Kelly hadn't already made a long-term commitment to his second-stringer, Blaine Gabbert, who did nothing to permanently wrestle the job away from Kaepernick while playing the fourth quarter of a 26-6 loss at Chicago.

Kelly admitted earlier this week that he and his coaches discussed their quarterback options on Monday before opting to stick with Kaepernick.

"We believe Kap gives us the best chance to win this week," the first-year 49ers coach explained.

Actually, what might give each team its best chance of winning would be a solid performance by a running back.

Before losing their last four in a row, the Jets built a modest two-game winning streak on the stretch of Forte's legs. He contributed 100 rushing yards and two touchdowns (one on a pass) to a 24-16 win at Baltimore in Week 7, and 82 yards and two rushing scores to a 31-28 home win over Cleveland the following week.

Forte has been held to a total of 52 yards in losses to New England and Indianapolis the last two weeks but just might be rejuvenated by the sight of San Francisco's worst-in-football rushing defense this week.

The 49ers have yet to overcome the season-ending Achilles injury suffered by standout linebacker NaVorro Bowman in Week 4. Bowman had 17 tackles in the first three games after having led the NFL in tackles last season.

Without their stopper in the middle, the 49ers have allowed a 100-yard rusher in nine of their last 11 games -- including star-quality performances by guys who don't have Forte's impressive resume.

San Francisco, meanwhile, hasn't won since Hyde rushed for 88 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-0, season-opening victory over the Rams.

Hyde missed three games in midseason with a shoulder injury, but he has flashed his Week 1 form with 86-, 65- and 92-yard outings the last three weeks.

With Kaepernick contributing 165 yards, the 49ers have fashioned the league's third-best rushing attack in the last three weeks, accumulating 456 yards on the ground.

Unlike Forte, however, Hyde figures to meet some resistance from the New York rushing defense, which has kept Todd Gurley, LeGarrette Blount and Frank Gore out of the end zone the last three weeks, limiting them to a total of 190 yards.

The 49ers (1-11) will take the league's second-worst record into the game. A loss would go a long way toward assuring a top-three pick while keeping alive their chances of picking first overall.

The Jets (3-9) currently are tied with Chicago for the fourth-worst record.
