49ERS GAME AT A GLANCE
MATCHUP TO WATCH
Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy vs. right guard Alex Boone
Boone had his hands full last week against Seattle’s big, but quick defensive linemen, and he committed two penalties. That’s uncharacteristic for the right guard, who was the 49ers’ least penalized lineman a year ago. Today, he’ll square off against McCoy, one of the top defensive tackles in the league. McCoy’s game also is built on his quickness, and he has seven sacks this season and an amazing 48 quarterback hurries. The third pick in the draft in 2010, he has excelled in flushing quarterbacks from the pocket.
