No. 1: Week 14, 49ers vs. Redskins

Kyle Shanahan won’t treat it as a trap game. If anything, he’ll always look for revenge on his former employer, the Redskins, even after the Niners won their 2019 road matchup in the rain and mud in Landover, Maryland.

Like the Jets and Dolphins, the Redskins are going through their own notable rebuild, which included adding Ohio State EDGE Chase Young with the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft.

Young, who was once a teammate of now-49ers EDGE Nick Bosa, could end up having a Bosa-like rookie year, which could ultimately turn into a key matchup to watch late in the season.

Even if San Francisco winds up winning this contest, one can imagine how both Bosa and Young’s performances opposite each other would be fun to watch.

Like their game against the Dolphins, the 49ers’ Week 14 bout will be sandwiched between two prime-time games. The week before, San Francisco hosts the Bills on Monday Night Football, and the short week could pose problems even though Shanahan and Co. won’t have to travel on a short week.

And one can only wonder how much the Niners are gearing up for their age-old rivalry with the Cowboys the following week.

Whatever the case may be, trap games are always dangerous, and these three could wind up being the surprise losses on San Francisco’s schedule this year.
