This won't surprise anyone who has watched a contest between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams in recent years, but there will likely be a lot of red inside SoFi Stadium on Sunday.

According to projections from ticket reseller Vivid Seats, 64 percent of the crowd at the Rams' home venue is expected to be 49ers fans, creating a favorable road environment for the visiting team.

"Sunday's game currently ranks as one of the hottest NFL tickets for Week 2, coming in 3rd," a representative with Vivid Seats told 49ers Webzone.

Only the New York Jets at Dallas Cowboys and the Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles games ranked higher in Week 2.

On Wednesday, defensive end Nick Bosa spoke highly of 49ers fans' ability to take over opposing stadiums, including Acrisure Stadium on Sunday.

"It's great," Bosa said. "I think we have the best traveling fan base overall. Pittsburgh was impressive, and I think we'll take over L.A."

In recent years, a strong 49ers presence has been a problem for the home-team Rams. The Niners fan base being well-represented in Southern California and Los Angeles being a short flight from the Bay Area has led to a lot of red at SoFi Stadium when the two teams clash.

The 49ers have won eight consecutive regular-season games against the Rams, a streak that dates back to 2019. San Francisco is currently an 8.5-point favorite.

It took nine years, but the San Francisco 49ers finally got some payback on Thursday night for the Seattle Seahawks feasting on turkey after a win at Levi's Stadium in 2014. The Seahawks' 19-3 win over the 49ers on Thanksgiving in 2014 was the last time either team played on Thanksgiving before Thursday night, and after that game then-Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman dug into the postgame turkey at the 50-yard line of Levi's Stadium at a time when the rivalry between the two teams was at a peak. The 49ers flipped the script on Thursday, notching a 31-13 win over the Seahawks at Lumen Field in Seattle that was followed by a slew of 49ers getting their fill of Thanksgiving turkey, courtesy of NBC.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday at Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington. Although the team did not practice on Monday, NFL rules mandate the release of a practice participation report ahead of a Thursday night game. The 49ers are obligated to estimate the level of participation players would have had if an actual practice had occurred. Safety Talanoa Hufanga suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will miss the remainder of the season. While guard Aaron Banks has missed the last two games, head coach Kyle Shanahan expressed optimism that the offensive lineman might be able to play against the Seahawks. Guard Spencer Burford also would not have

Steve Young highlights remaining area of growth for 49ers QB Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla
Nov 20

Brock Purdy was perfect on Sunday during the San Francisco 49ers' 27-14 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers—at least regarding passer rating. The quarterback completed 21 of his 25 passing attempts for 333 yards and three touchdowns, earning a perfect passer rating of 158.3. Steve Young, the former ESPN analyst and Hall of Fame player, believes there remains room for improvement. He emphasized that Purdy, drafted as the final overall pick last year, doesn't fit the prototype of quarterbacks selected higher in the draft, such as Jalen Hurts and C.J. Stroud, who possess different physical qualities. "He's not the prototype,"
