The Los Angeles Rams were too much for the injury-maligned San Francisco 49ers. Dominating in all facets of the game, the Rams won easily, 39-10. Looking back before the game, here were the five 49ers that I thought the Rams should keep an eye on. Unfortunately for these 49ers, most did not have much success against our beloved team.
RB Matt Breida
Breida had a rough game. Down early and often, the 49ers didn’t even use him that much as he only recorded five carries for 15 yards while also losing a fumble that DL Aaron Donald ripped away.

Breida did not record a catch or target as the 49ers got Raheem Mostert more involved.
WR Marquise Goodwin
After an explosive game against the Green Bay Packers, the Rams were able to limit Goodwin to two catches and 24 yards. Although targeted five times, the Rams were able to limit the speedy former Olympian.
LB Reuben Foster
Foster had tough game. Given the Rams scored 39 points and the fact that RB Todd Gurley had three total touchdowns, there’s no way the former Alabama LB was happy with himself or the defense.

TE George Kittle
The 49ers’ leading pass catcher had a great game. Leading the game with 98 yards on five catches (also a touchdown), Kittle scored on an interesting play.

Kittle definitely showed out against the Rams and you have to appreciate his hustle throughout the game.
EDGE DeForest Buckner
EDGE Buckner had a quieter than anticipated game. With only three tackles on the day, the Rams were able to move the ball and score at will. Buckner had one tackle for loss, but other than that, it was relatively quiet as his teammate Arik Armstead had the better game.
