Thursday Night Match Up: Rams at 49ers

Thursday Night Match Up: Rams at 49ers

Goff who didn't get the opportunity to play a year ago at Levi's Stadium took every opportunity to go deep.

From a first glance, the San Francisco 49ers match-up versus the Los Angeles Rams Thursday night seemed nothing short of your average game, and had very low expectations in terms of excitement.

Goff was 22 of 28 for 282 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. The wins over the Colts and 49ers could very well go down as season highlights for another not-very-good Rams team. "I thought he made great decisions with the football".

The game wasn't any easier on the 49ers, who lost safety Jaquiski Tartt (concussion), fullback Kyle Juszczyk (neck), defensive lineman Tank Carradine (ankle) and linebacker Brock Coyle (concussion) to injuries in the second half. We didn't expect a classic.

The Rams traded for Sammy Watkins, in theory, to get Jared Goff a bona fide, No. 1, go-to wide receiver. I knew that was going to be tough, so I just went up and talked to him, looked in his eyes, he looked fine.

Not sure? We aren't, either. An incredible performance came from running back Todd Gurley who ran 88 yards on 16 carries and three receptions for 48 yards scoring a rushing and receiving touchdown. Next week, we've got Dallas. We're going to have rehab for the guys to get healthy and try to get the players away from us for about three days. "So it just felt good to be out there and execute as an offense".

The offense is leading the way, making up for surprising breakdowns on defense and special teams in the Rams' 41-39 win at San Francisco on Thursday night.

"Oh the first play?" Looking at the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers entering the matchup, it appeared the strength of both teams was on defense with questions still on offense. Both teams are at the bottom of the league in run defense through two games, and both will want to heavily involve their star running back on offense. CB Nickell Robey-Coleman, who was starting in place of the injured Kayvon Webster, intercepted a pass on the first play of the game and returned it to the 3-yard line to set up Gurley's first TD of the night, which came on the next play.

Wolfsburg earn comeback draw at Bayern to snap losing run
Bayern have no dropped points in two key matches this season, having previously lost 2-0 in a shock away defeat to Hoffenheim. When you let in a goal like that, the game becomes completely open and you can always let in another.

Gurley got the hat trick right before the half when he took the toss from Goff and beat the San Francisco defense to the left pylon for the score.

Fast-forward to eight minutes left in the fourth quarter: The Rams scored yet another touchdown to go ahead 41-26 in the final stretch of play.

Therefore you ask how can the Los Angeles Rams earn this victory?

LA struggled on Sunday in the first half of the game against Washington.

Do you think Hoyer is the quarterback of the 49ers for the next five years or even next year?

Watkins scored his second touchdown of the game when he caught a pass from Goff over the middle, carrying defenders on his back as he wrestled and reached for the goaline. The bad news is they gave up 229 yards on the ground. He threw for 2,800 yards his first full season and ran for another 237. But as the game wore on, that's how it played out, complete with fumbled kick returns, onside kicks and more.

Gurley got the ball rolling, but it was Goff and the passing game that made the biggest statement.
