From the opening kickoff to the final whistle, the Rams absolutely dominated things in all three phases. Were it not for some early mistakes from the Rams that they committed all on their own, the blowout would have been in full force early on. Instead, it took a few possessions for the Rams to iron out the wrinkles and for the game to truly show the distance between these two teams.
And give the Rams credit. No, the Niners aren’t a highly talented team, and yes they’ve suffered a bunch of high-impact injuries. But doesn’t matter. It’s the Rams-49ers. Getting a win like this on the back of the offensive line, RB Todd Gurley and DL Aaron Donald with great performances all around the defense with the takeaways they got today is something the Rams should hang their hats on as they come home to LA to take on the Green Bay Packers next Sunday.
For today though, this contest was about two teams on opposite sides of the fence.
And two teams that played like it.
