The 49ers are expected to have a significant fan presence on the road against Commanders – NBC Sports Bay Area

SANTA CLARA – As Nick Bosa walked out of the locker room after the 49ers' loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night, the All-Pro defense turned around and seemed to forget something.

“If you write about something, write about it,” Bosa told the media members who had just interviewed him. “Write about the believers. They were just as loud until the end of the game as they were at the beginning. They were amazing.”

The 49ers Faithful have been present and very loud throughout the 2023 NFL season, regardless of the circumstances or location. After four turnovers in the first three quarters of San Francisco's Christmas Day loss, many fans stayed at Levi's Stadium until the bitter end. The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year took notice.

On Sunday, believers will once again make their presence known – this time on the streets. According to ticket marketplace Vivid Seats, 49ers fans will make up 42 percent of the crowd at FedExField in Week 17 to watch their team take on the Washington Commanders.

Since coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch took charge of the organization in 2017, 49ers fans across the country have found their way to various NFL stadiums to watch their team play.

Not only do they come early to watch the players warm up, get autographs and take photos – they are also loud.

Even at venues as hostile as Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, fans showed up to support the 49ers. The accompanying 49ers fans are often so numerous and loud that their cheers can be heard on the broadcast even at away venues.

While Sunday's game in Washington may not be the big matchup that the 49ers-Ravens game was billed as, expect to see some red and gold in the stadium. Bosa certainly expects nothing less.
