It should come as no surprise that the two worst teams in the NFL the last two seasons lead the league in one category: penalties committed.

The Browns and the 49ers, both at 0-7 and for the second straight season vying for the No. 1 overall draft pick, each have 58. To be fair there are a couple of teams, including the Seahawks, who would be at least competing for the lead if they had played seven, not six, games so far.

So which 49ers have committed the most? The results probably will not surprise anyone who’s been watching closely.
