Nope. LBs: Brooks and Aldon Smith played well on rushing and run stop. Bowman did okay, consider Willis played under par. Willis was below average when you compare him to his usual standard. I think he has a undisclosed injury, most likely his lower body. IMO his poor play was the difference on the defense that gave the 3-5 rams 24 pts.
Furthermore there wasn't much pass rush the whole game except for a few occasions of Aldon Smith getting through (2 sacks).
