Taking a look at the key matchups identified before the game.

Rams OTs vs 49ers DEs

Earlier this week I said:

...seeing these youngsters battle it out could be a glance into the future of this rivalry.

God I hope not.

Blaine Gabbert vs Rams DBs

Even when you consider the thoroughness of this beat down, you have to give the Rams DBs some props here. They held Gabbert to a pretty pedestrian 63% completion percentage, 170 yards, and an 84.2 rating.

Throw in that T.J. McDonald (4), Coty Sensabaugh, and Lamarcus Joyner combined for 6 tackles for a loss and the secondary alleviated some of the concerns Rams fans had about the rebuild secondary.

Bear in mind that it was only the 49ers though. They'll get a much stiffer test next week vs the Seahawks.

Rams DL vs 49ers OL

This was a disaster. I expected the Rams to dominate this matchup, but that obviously didn't happen. This unit needs to start producing. #SackCity was a bust a few years ago. Let's keep #MobSquad from dying too, fellas.
