Two teams that got subpar play from their starting quarterbacks in Week 1 move forward without key personnel when the visiting San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets attempt to put losses behind them in an interconference matchup Sunday afternoon.

The 49ers (0-1) placed star cornerback Richard Sherman on three-game injured reserve this week following their 24-20 home loss to Arizona.

The Jets (0-1), meanwhile, lost top running back Le'Veon Bell to a hamstring injury in their opening 27-17 setback at Buffalo.

Both quarterbacks struggled in their season debut.

Playing without injured wideouts Deebo Samuels and Brandon Aiyuk, San Francisco's Jimmy Garoppolo completed 19 of 33 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

Garoppolo suffered a setback when standout tight end George Kittle sprained his knee late in the second quarter. He returned to play the second half, but only as a decoy, failing to catch another pass.

Kittle is being held out of practice this week, although 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan has left the door open for him to play Sunday.

"He's battling," Shanahan reported earlier this week. "He fully expects to be there Sunday, like he always does. Just like he always plays through the game when it happens. Kittle is one guy that if he's ready to go on Sunday and the doctors say he's good to go, we have no problem with him going without practicing."

With Aiyuk a possibility to make his NFL debut but Samuels still out (he's on three-week IR), the 49ers added to their wideout crew with the signing of free agent Muhammad Sanu this week.

Cut in training camp by the New England Patriots, Sanu is expected to play against the Jets.

The 49ers have won 10 of 13 all-time meetings with the Jets, but New York prevailed in the most recent head-to-head, 23-17 in overtime on the road in 2016. Colin Kaepernick was the San Francisco starting quarterback that day.

The last time the 49ers visited the Meadowlands, they walked away with a 34-0 triumph in 2012, with Frank Gore helping lead the way with 64 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Gore will be on the other sideline this time around, having signed a one-year deal with the Jets in May.

The 37-year-old became New York's primary back after Bell's injury last week, rushing six times for a team-high 24 yards.

Jets coach Adam Gase was an offensive assistant with the 49ers in 2008 at a time when Gore was building franchise-record rushing numbers in San Francisco.

"Anybody who was there with him before will believe when I say this: He looks the same. It's unreal to watch," Gase gushed this week. "This is my third stint with him. He's the same Frank. He shows up. Works hard. Practices hard. You can tell he just loves the game so much."

Jets quarterback Sam Darnold could use all the help he can get this week, coming off a 21-for-35, 215-yard effort in Buffalo that included one touchdown and an interception.

Darnold's favorite target in the opener, wideout Jamison Crowder, began the week with a hamstring issue that allowed only limited participation at practice on Wednesday. As with the 49ers and Kittle, the Jets hope to have him ready to go by Sunday.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

San Francisco 49ers vs. New York Jets

The San Francisco 49ers overcame injuries to Jimmy Garoppolo and Nick Bosa with a stellar defensive effort Sunday afternoon, limiting the host New York Jets to just two field goals before a meaningless late touchdown in a 31-13 shellacking.

A gimpy Garoppolo threw two touchdown passes to tight end Jordan Reed before calling it a day at halftime, and Raheem Mostert dashed 80 yards for a TD on the first offensive play of the game, helping the 49ers (1-1) overcome an opening loss to Arizona with a decisive win.

Sam Darnold went 21-of-32 for 179 yards with a 30-yard TD to Braxton Berrios for the Jets (0-2), who opened last week with a loss at Buffalo.

With his team already ahead 7-0 thanks to Mostert's untouched run around the right side, Garoppolo injured his right ankle when sacked by Quinnen Williams in the first quarter.

The 49ers punted on the next play, giving their medical staff time to apply tape and send Garoppolo back out there, after which he limped through the rest of the first half but still managed the 18- and 4-yard touchdown passes to Reed.

Garoppolo did not play in the second half, having gone 14-of-16 for 131 yards and the two scores in the first two periods, after which the 49ers led 21-3.

Mostert, who injured his knee late in the second quarter, also did not return for the second half. He nonetheless finished as the game's leading rusher with 92 yards on just eight carries.

Backup Jerick McKinnon added a fourth-quarter touchdown on a 16-yard run, part of a 79-yard rushing day.

The San Francisco defense did the rest, despite having begun the game without standout cornerback Richard Sherman and then losing Bosa and fellow defensive lineman Solomon Thomas to knee injuries early in the game. Both were carted off the field in the first quarter.

The full extent of the Garoppolo, Bosa, Thomas and Mostert injuries was not immediately known.

New York was handcuffed offensively by the absence of running back Le'Veon Bell and wideout Jamison Crowder, both out with hamstring injuries. The Jets were held to 277 total yards, 80 of which came on the drive that produced Berrios' TD catch with just 1:23 to play.

Former 49ers running back Frank Gore rushed for 63 yards on 21 carries for the Jets, while Chris Hogan was the game's leading receiver with six catches for 75 yards.

Sam Ficken had 41- and 25-yard field goals to complete New York's scoring.

The 49ers managed 359 total yards despite Garoppolo's injury and the absence of star tight end George Kittle, who sat out with an injury. Nick Mullens quarterbacked the second half.

Kendrick Bourne was San Francisco's leading receiver with four catches for 67 yards.
