“Kupp, who walked off the field under his own power, was seen with his ankle wrapped in the locker room after the game.

“Sean McVay has had plenty of success in the NFL, with plenty of wins and a Super Bowl ring on his resume. But the accomplished head coach of the Los Angeles Rams continues to struggle to beat Kyle Shanahan following Sunday’s 31-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.”

“Of course, the San Francisco 49ers are not unbeatable. They have four losses this season. The simple fact is the LA Rams cannot beat them. Regardless of the 49ers’ health, record, or playoff aspirations, they simply need to face the LA Rams for everything to fall into place, for the Rams to challenge them early, for 49er HC Kyle Shanahan and QB Jimmy Garoppolo to see what the Rams are trying to do, and then adjust to it in the second half.”
