Two-time pro bowler Kyle Juszczyk dropped by “Mornings W/ Joe, Lo & Dibs” on Thursday to offer an emphatic vote of confidence for the 49ers’ defense, in advance of the Week 16 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars, owners of the preeminent defensive unit in the NFL.

“Our defense is built to be like the former Seahawks defense, and really, like this Jacksonville Jaguars defense,” Juszczyk said on 95.7 The Game. “It’s kind of what we’re trying to emulate.”

As the fullback detailed to Joe Fortenbaugh, Lorenzo Neal and Dan Dibley, the meeting with the Jags provides an excellent opportunity for the Niners defenders to shine.

“I think our defense has just played their minds out these last couple of weeks,” Juszczyk said. “It’s been phenomenal to watch them and I think that this is week for them, they can show, ‘Hey, we’re legit too.’”
