Just one more week remains in the NFL season and both the Rams and 49ers can chalk this up as a bad season.
They’ll both look for a silver lining win here on Sunday as they meet up in San Francisco on Sunday.
The Rams can hold their heads a little bit higher as they have the chance to finish at the .500 mark with a win over the 49ers.
St. Louis can really look back on the season and really get excited about how they handled the defending NFC Champs.
St. Louis went into Seattle and had their way on Sunday as they came out 23-17 winners, which marks a season sweep of the series. All the way back in Week 1, the Rams knocked off the Seahawks to start the season.
This marks the first time since 2004 the Rams have swept the season series and they also managed to end the Hawks 5 game winning streak.
The Rams got the job done thanks to their stellar defense, that has actually been good all season long. St. Louis held the Hawks to just 60 yards on the ground as they had the box stacked consistently, giving them no answer.
Case Keenum will once again be under center. He finished with just 103 yards and a touchdown last week, as he’s not doing too much to wow the Rams coaching staff, but he’s also not forcing anything or turning the ball over.
The 49ers have been one of the more disappointing teams this season in the NFL.
While they weren’t expected to do too much, they really never got things going and eventually had Blaine Gabbert calling the shots as they come in off another loss, this time to the Lions.
Detroit sent the 49ers to their 3rd straight loss.
Gabbert didn’t play all that bad in the loss as he finished with 225 yards and added 2 touchdowns to his credit. He did fumble late in the 2nd half that led to a Lions touchdown however.
The run game has been a mess for the 49ers this season. DuJuan Harris was signed from the Ravens practice squad just prior to the game on Sunday.
Harris did have a good showing all things considered as he ran for 73 yards on just 11 carries.
