Big jump for Tavon Austin who logged a season high percentage of snaps yesterday. Sunday's game also marked the third in a row in which Tre Mason landed between 60 and 70% of the snaps. It took the Rams half of a season to get to a formalized running strategy, but at least they got to one... This was also just the third week, following the first two of the season, in which Lance Kendricks got more time than Jared Cook.

Defense

E Gaines CB 69 100%
T McDonald SS 69 100%
R McLeod FS 69 100%
J Jenkins CB 69 100%

A Donald DT 61 88%
R Quinn DE 59 86%

M Brockers DT 38 55%
K Langford DT 30 43%
W Hayes DE 26 38%
M Barron SS 12 17%
E Westbrooks DE 10 14%

The secondary and linebackers were locked in yesterday with Jo-Lonn Dunbar sidelined.  The only real rotation was along the defensive line and the ten-spot Mark Barron jumped in for. This was only the second game, after the MNF 49ers matchup, in which Aaron Donald played more than Robert Quinn, FWIW.

Was this a breakout performance for Maurice Alexander or what? He only had two other games in which he figured big time - week two at Tampa Bay and the week 6 Monday Night Football 49ers game. On Sunday, he showed up big time with his two plays. It was also a season-high on special work for Benny Cunningham.
