Wow, these are a couple of sad sacks in this “Monday Night Football” showdown. Last Sunday, the Rams (7-2) couldn’t beat the Tennessee Titans at home despite not having to deal with Derrick Henry. Then the 49ers (3-5) came out to face the Arizona Cardinals, but still couldn’t pull off a win despite not facing Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins or JJ Watts. This seemed like a welcome mat to victory for both of them. What the hell is happening here?
You can look at it in two different ways. The Rams they had a four-game winning streak before last weekend and are obviously motivated to stay in contention for the playoffs. So the thud of a game against the Titans may have been an aberration. The Niners they came into that game from Arizona having lost four of their last five and still failed to get a distinctive win on the left side of the ledger. Now, apparently, the Niners they are a spinning ball of confusion.
The underdog here could see a turning point in his season… and not in a good way.

Spread: Rams -4
Three things to keep in mind
1.- Jimmy G’s last battle?
The handsome quarterback could be making his final start to the season against the Rams this week. And it’s not really his fault. In your defense, Jimmy garappolo It was NOT the problem in the San Fran 3-5 start. It’s just that the wins don’t pile up and the fans (and maybe the coaches too?) Want to see the guy where the Niners they spent their first-round pick. Trey Lance started one game this year – a forgettable 17-10 crush by the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5 – and has played in three others, completing 25 of 48 for 354 yards, three touchdowns and one pick. He is also third on the team with 133 rushing yards while averaging 4.9 yards per carry. No matter who’s at the helm, the offense is starting to emerge with Deebo Samuel stepping up, the return of George Kittle, who missed more than a month, and Brandon Aiyuk, who could be an emerging target.
2.- Will Matthew Stafford look like Matthew Stafford again?
Until last weekend Stafford looked like All-Pro material, leading the NFL with 2,771 yards and a 23: 6 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Against the Titans, Stafford it looked like a piece of toilet paper stuck to the sole of a businessman’s shoe coming out of the bathroom (who inexplicably still zips up at the same time). Two terrible-looking picks became touchdowns for Tennessee and Stafford He finished the day with a putrid 17.3 QBR, his lowest of the season to say the least. The pressure was definitely part of the problem, as he was sacked five times (compared to 13 total before) and the Titans received 11 hits from QB. Also note that Stafford will face a 49ers D that made Colt McCoy (yes, he’s still in the league) look like he’s going to Canton as he went 22 of 26 with a quarterback rating of 119.4. The Niners They are still fourth in the NFL, allowing just 207 passing yards per game, so this will be another big challenge for Stafford and company. But I must believe that the Titans game was an aberration for this offense of the Rams.
3.- The Rams defense could get even tougher
Despite the defeat, the Rams they limited the Titans to a paltry 194 yards total. That is an impressive statistic. (It also shows how shocking those two interceptions of Stafford and the 12 penalties for 115 yards, but I digress). Jalen ramsey he has become a real force since he was allowed to roam the entire field more compared to going one-on-one with the opponent’s WR1 as he did last year. His size and ability have allowed defensive coordinator Raheem Morris to move him. Besides that, Von miller He appears to be ready for this week after being traded last week by the Broncos. It will be really interesting to see how much Morris use Miller, especially if he’s lined up next to Aaron Donald. That should be fun to watch.
Oh, due to the breaking news at press time, let’s make a “Thing To Watch” bonus.
While not a guarantee, it is expected that Odell Beckham Jr., newly hired, make your debut in the Rams Monday night even though he will have been with the team for a few days. The measure of Rams takes on even more importance considering the developing news about an anterior cruciate ligament tear that he suffered Robert Woods during practice on Friday.
With Woods lost during the season, Rams they need Beckham to produce sooner rather than later. Woods is second to Cooper Kupp on the team in receptions (45), receiving yards (556) and touchdown receptions (4). In addition to Beckham, Los Angeles also needs Van jefferson and tight end Tyler Higbee to help make up for Woods’ absence.
San Francisco 49ers vs Los Angeles Rams LIVE
As mentioned above, both the Rams Like the 49ers they are pretty good defensive teams. A rarity of this series is that Kyle shanahan seems to have Sean McVay’s number lately, as the Niners have won four straight games between these two Golden State rivals.
Everything that goes into this prediction is based on the fact that we have to look at the performance of the Rams last week was an outlier. I think it was and I think they are going to want to show the pigskin world that they are a team to compete with down the stretch. And besides, I still haven’t seen the 49ers beat a good team, so until they do, it’s the Rams for me.
Prediction: Rams 28, 49ers 20
