The Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers have a rich history, but no history will be made today. The 49ers sit at 1-13 and have a multitude of tough personnel and front office decisions to make in the coming weeks. The Rams have already ousted Jeff Fisher and the roster will start being turned over by a new regime after the season concludes.
Neither team has much to play for, but players will be playing for their jobs. Whether it be players trying to earn their next contract or trying to secure a future with their team, I expect to see a lot of players looking out for #1.
Both teams have made a handful of roster moves this week in preparation for today’s game. Players like Sean Mannion and Aaron Green could get the first action of their NFL careers.
With the season drawing to a close next week, both franchises seem intent to look forward to 2017. But before they can accomplish that, we need to find out who is the true basement dweller in the NFC West.
