Well, that just happened folks.
The “newly” minted Los Angeles Rams lost a 28-nil drubbing by the San Francisco 49ers.
And the five 49er players I listed before the game? Well lets see how they performed:
DL Arik Armstead
The 49ers front seven wrecked havoc on quarterback Case Keenum all night long. The Bay Area team racked up two sacks and five more QB hits. Arik Armstead tallied one of those sacks and another one of those QB hits.
LB NaVorro Bowman
Remember when I said the Rams had to run Todd Gurley right at NaVorro Bowman to prove his grit? Well that did not work out too well.
Bowman racked up nine tackles, with seven of them solo. He was constantly closing up running lanes and there to make the stop.
Oh, NaVorro also picked off Keenum early in the first quarter.
RG Anthony Davis
Davis did not play. The starting right guard spot went to Andrew Tiller.
Tiller played well all game, besides sitting out a few plays.
QB Blaine Gabbert
Colin who? Gabbert showed of his wheels, gaining 43 yards on nine carries.
Through the air, Blaine did not do much. He went 22 of 35 for 170 yards (just under five yards per pass) and a touchdown.
He did not do much, but he did not lose the game for his team. Good shit, Gabbert.
RB Carlos Hyde
Carlos Hyde started off the game on fuego. He and Blaine were able to gash the Rams D on command.
Hyde registered his first touchdown of the 2016 season on a 11-yard run right up the middle – the start of the blowout.
At the end of the night, Hyde carried the ball 23 times for 88 yards.
