Rams vs. 49ers Preview, Tips, and Odds

Sean McVay Rams

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff has been shaky over the last two games. It has been a hotly contested rivalry over the years, with the 49ers holding a slight 69-65-3 lead. The Rams are first in yards rushing at 154.3 yards per game, sixth in passing at 310 and third in scoring at 32.7 points a game. The 49ERS are 1-5 and the Rams are undefeated.

Without him, the offense has been stagnant for the most part, although they did almost score a huge upset in Week 6 as they took the Green Bay Packers to the wire on Monday Night Football.

A fully balanced game has eluded the 49ers through the first six weeks.

The Rams are the best overall team in football right now.

A 20-3 Ram lead at 6:09 in the third quarter was reduced to the upset-minded Broncos attempting an onside kick with 1:22 remaining in regulation. It also marked the first time since Week 1 that he failed to throw for at least 300 yards, as he barely eclipsed the 200-yard mark against the Broncos.

The good news is that Goff should be able to bounce back nicely in Week 7.

Now? It boils down to one or the other on November 24 - assuming, of course, neither stumbles again before then. The Ohio State Buckeyes had few answers on the field during Saturday's 49-20 humiliation at Purdue .

GREEN BAY, WI - OCTOBER 15: Davante Adams #17 of the Green Bay Packers catches a pass for a touchdown in front of Greg Mabin #26 of the San Francisco 49ers during the second half at Lambeau Field on October 15, 2018 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

No one knows that better than 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, because Los Angeles coach Sean McVay runs a scheme based on the same concepts Shanahan taught him when they were both on the same staff in Washington from 2010 to 2013. They have allowed 14 touchdowns through the air with just one interception in six games as well.

The 49ers displayed a lot of effort and a good offensive performance on Monday Night, but came up a play or two short. The Rams will be missing reliable receiver Cooper Kupp, which hurts the Rams passing attack. But the Rams' quarterback should have no trouble making do with wide receivers Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks against this defense. San Francisco has three cornerbacks listed as questionable: Richard Sherman (calf), Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) and K'Waun Williams (shoulder). Beathard played arguably the best game of his pro career in Week 6 on the road against the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football.

With C.J. Beathard at quarterback, the 49ers probably can not keep pace with the Rams' league-leading offense. Niners are 2-27 in last 29 games without Jimmy Garoppolo as starting QB. The 49ers have turned the ball over ten times in the last three games alone.

"When you have a responsibility in coverage and you go up and play your run fit and don't look at your responsibility, that's how a guy gets very open", Shanahan said.
