The San Francisco 49ers travel across the Atlantic to face the Jacksonville Jaguars at the world famous Wembley Stadium in London, England.  The 49ers will try to win their fifth straight game, while the Jaguars will see if a change of scenery is what they need in order to win a single game. To say that Jacksonville has struggled this season is a huge understatement.  This is without a doubt the worst team in the NFL.   They are just not good at controlling the line of scrimmage as they are ranked dead last in both running the ball and stopping the run.  Maurice Jones-Drew one of the better running backs in the league has not run the ball as efficient as he has in the past, mostly because of weak quarterback play and because the team seemingly plays from behind all the time. The Jaguars have also opted to go with Chad Henne at quarterback for this game.  He hasn’t played terrible, passing for over 300 yards in his previous two games, but has thrown three picks and zero touchdown passes in his last two starts. The 49ers will try to continue their recent surge and head into their bye week at 6-2 and having won five in a row.  Their recent success on the ground has put them third in the league at running the ball which should put them at a great advantage when they face the Jaguars.  Colin Kaepernick has also seemed to have found a connection with his pro-bowl tight end Vernon Davis.  The ability of these two to connect for big plays have made them one of the most dangerous duo in the league.  Davis so far, has caught six touchdown passes and has an average of 17.9 yards per reception.  Look for Davis to continue his dominance against a weak Jacksonville secondary. Player to watch:  Colin Kaepernick running the ball Last week the 49ers finally let Kaepernick carry the rock a little bit and it resulted in 68 yards on 11 carries and his first rushing td against a good Titans defense.  Look for this trend to continue as Kaepernick, if given the opportunity, will explode and run around the field putting the English fans in a frenzy. X-Factor:  The weather It looks like it’s going to be wet and windy at Wembley.  If that’s in fact the case, look for Jones-Drew and Frank Gore to carry the ball a lot for their teams.  This would put the 49ers in an significant advantage given the strength of this team is to play smash mouth football. Bottom Line:  It’s the 49ers against the Jaguars 49ers 30 Jaguars 13
