Projecting the San Francisco 49ers record in 2022


What will be the 49ers record next season?

By: Jake Rajala

The San Francisco 49ers made it to the NFC Championship last season and they will look to return to the post-season with their new leader in Trey Lance. With that said, I’m going to simply outline the potential highs, likely lows, and overall record with the 49ers next season.

Week 1: at the Bears

This NFC battle features two, second-year dual-threat quarterbacks. Although, Lance has a significantly more well-rounded roster than Fields. I love that the 49ers kept Deebo Samuel and I expect SF to win 28-17.

Week 2: vs the Seahawks

The 49ers should honestly throttle the rebuilding Seahawks team by a score of 28-14.

Week 3: at Broncos

I foresee the Broncos having more success through the air than SF in this key showdown. I expect the 49ers to lean on George Kittle with his match-ups and make it a highly competitive game. All in all, I believe Denver wins 28-24.

Week 4: vs the Rams

I love the Rams chances at returning to the Super Bowl next season. They also have more firepower (Allen Robinson) than last season in my opinion. I believe LA wins 35-28.


Week 5: at the Panthers

The 49ers will bounce back in Week 5 against a Panthers team that may cut ties with Matt Rhule by the mid-point of the season. I believe SF wins 28-14.

Week 6: at the Falcons

I actually feel that SF is upset by the Falcons with the very underrated Marcus Mariota and stud TE Kyle Pitts. I believe the Falcons win 24-21.

Week 7: vs the Chiefs

The 49ers should give Patrick Mahomes issues with their pass rush, but I’m more convinced that Patty Mahomes comes in clutch to win this game. I believe KC wins 28-14.

Week 8: at the Rams

Unfortuantely, I don’t anticipate the 49ers stealing lunch money from LA in 2022. I expect LA to win 34-24 in this contest.

Week 10: vs the Chargers

I believe the Chargers and the Eagles are the two most underrated NFL squads. I really believe the Chargers edge out SF in this game by a score of 28-21.

Week 11: at the Cardinals

The 49ers should beat the Cardinals in my opinion. I believe both teams will dig deep and SF wins a gutsy match-up by a score of 24-21.

Week 12: at the Saints

I foresee the Saints winning a blood-bath, NFC showdown by a score of 24-14. The Saints are one step ahead of SF from my view.

Week 13: vs the Dolphins

I sadly expect Shanny to witness his former Padawan in Mike McDaniel to beat him. I predict the Phins to win 28-21.

Week 14: vs the Buccaneers

The Buccaneers will not take the gas off the pedal in Week 13. I imagine Tampa wins 35-21.

Week 15: at the Seahawks

This NFC West clash will result in a victory, as a likely three-four win team in SEA loses by a score of 28-17.

Week 16: vs the Commanders

The 49ers should win this pivotal match-up, as I trust in Shanny and the clutch 49ers team more than Carson Wentz. I believe the 49ers win 31-24.

Week 17: at the Raiders

I don’t love the 49ers chances against the Raiders and I believe Derek Carr has a big day against the 49ers secondary. I believe LV wins 31-21.

Week 18: vs the Cardinals

After the 49ers swept LA in 2021, I feel the 49ers mop the floor against AZ in 2022. I believe SF wins 27-24.

Final record: 7-10
