7) Defense: Look at that. The offense sustained some drives (until the end when they were trying to run out the clock), the D was able to stay fresh, and they DOMINATED. It isn't lost on me that the Rams O sucks pretty bad, but my point is that when the D isn't on the field for 36-37 minutes, they are still pretty damn good. ALL of the Rams points were on a short field. The field goal came after the 49ers had missed a field goal so the Rams got the ball at the 49er 43 and drove only 23 yards. The TD...well we all know that they got there on a turnover and the penalty was BS.
This was my favorite part of the game, the defensive performance. The TOP was so one sided the previous 2 games due to the offense, I didn't blame the defense for breaking down. Like you said, the Rams Offense is awful. That was still a special defensive performance.
The 49ers limited the Rams to 18 yards rushing on 19 attempts..
........Let that sink in for a second.......
The Rams averaged less than 1 yard per carry!!
That's insane, no matter who the opponent is. That just doesn't happen at the professional level. Our Run D is fine, they never went anywhere. I knew all they needed was for the offense to sustain some drives.
