It is game week.

That is right, the Arizona Cardinals take on the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday for their first game of 2020.

There will be no fans, but there will be football.

We have to start getting ready for the San Francisco 49ers, so we will be taking a look throughout the week at Niners Nation to help us get ready for the upcoming game.

First, lets take a look at what the 49ers roster looks like heading into this week.

Here is the 53-man roster following those cuts:

QB (3): Jimmy Garoppolo, C.J. Beathard Nick Mullens

RB (4): Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert, Jerick McKinnon, Jeff Wilson Jr.

FB (1): Kyle Juszczyk

WR (6): Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, Trent Taylor, Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis, Richie James

TE (4): George Kittle, Jordan Reed, Charlie Woerner Ross Dwelley,

OT (4): Trent Williams, Mike McGlinchey, Justin Skule

OG (3): Laken Tomlinson, Daniel Brunskill, Tom Compton, Colton Mckivitz

C (1): Ben Garland

DL (9): Arik Armstead, Nick Bosa, Dee Ford, Javon Kinlaw, D.J. Jones, Kentavius Street, Kevin Givens, Kerry Hyder, Solomon Thomas

LB (5): Kwon Alexander, Dre Greenlaw, Azeez Al-Shaair, Mark Nzeocha, Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles

CB (5): Richard Sherman, Emmanuel Moseley, Ahkello Witherspoon, Jason Verrett, K’Waun Williams,

S (4): Jimmie Ward, Jaquiski Tartt, Tarvarius Moore, Marcell Harris

K (1): Robbie Gould

P (1): Mitch Wishnowsky

LS (1): Kyle Nelson

Covid-19/list: LB Fred Warner

PUP: C Weston Richburg, DL Ronald Blair, DL Jullian Taylor

Fred Warner, a dynamic linebacker can be activated at any time from the Covid-19 list, so lets not get too excited that he won’t play.

The 49ers wide receiving corps is an interesting group, but doesn’t seem like they’ll be huge threats early on. They will be later in the season, but right now it could be a bit of a edge towards the Cardinals.

The offensive line of the 49ers has improved significantly, which is something considering how good they were last year. Trent Williams is the equivalent of DeAndre Hopkins from an addition standpoint.

The real fight will continue to be the opposite, can the Cardinals find a way to keep a dominant defensive front of the 49ers at bay long enough to let Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury get things done?

What do you see from the 49ers official 53-man roster.
