The 49ers look to bounce back from a two-game losing streak by defeating the visiting Bengals in Week 8.
Things weren't always going to be simple and easy for the 5-2 San Francisco 49ers, who started off with those first five wins and now are looking at the hard reality of a two-game losing streak.
Worse yet, the two games lost were very much winnable, as head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad was in a position against both the Cleveland Browns and the Minnesota Vikings, respectively, to pull off last-second victories.
Alas, neither was meant to be.
Now, having played Minnesota on Monday Night Football, the Niners return home on a short week to face a 3-3 Cincinnati Bengals team that started off wholly terrible, particularly on offense, but has since won two in a row to get back to the .500 mark.
While San Francisco's own quarterback, Brock Purdy, has to find a way to bounce back from his first losing streak, is Cincy quarterback Joe Burrow back on the upswing after such an ugly beginning to the year?
The two teams will face each other this Sunday to find out.
