In their first attempt to defeat the San Francisco 49ers this season, the Los Angeles Rams compiled 17 first downs and 311 total yards of offense. Those are their second-lowest such totals this season, somewhat eclipsing their performance against the New York Giants in Week 4. But the Rams beat the Giants and couldn’t do the same against the 49ers because they allowed Jimmy Garoppolo to lead three touchdown drives of 75 or more yards in the first half.
Los Angeles turned on the defense significantly in the second half (99 total yards, three points, four punts) but by then it was much too late. San Francisco won 24-16 and it remains their only win this season against a team outside of the AFC East.
It is also their only win at home this year.
The 49ers started 3-0 on the road but have dropped their last two contests away from Santa Clara by double digits. The Rams are hosting the 49ers on Sunday and look to improve their record at SoFi Stadium to 5-0. They will be playing without Andrew Whitworth, Micah Kiser and potentially rookie Terrell Lewis.
The 49ers have ruled out Tevin Coleman, Tom Compton and they have listed Dre Greenlaw as questionable. Richard Sherman and Raheem Mostert could be returning to the field for San Francisco after missing considerable time on injured reserve.
How confident are Rams fans headed into Sunday’s rematch?
