Gameday: San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams

Sep 26, 2013 at 12:00 AM--




Tonight, the 49ers will travel to St. Louis to face the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. The two teams last met in December of 2012 when the Rams upset the 49ers with a 16-13 overtime victory in St. Louis. The all-time series is tied at 62 games for each team. Last season, the Rams were the only NFC West team that the 49ers were unable to beat at least once. Their November matchup at Candlestick Park ended in a tie.

After two consecutive poorly played games, the 49ers are looking to rebound and get their season back on track with a win against the Rams. The 49ers' last victory came during a week one victory at home against the Green Bay Packers. The Rams have also lost two consecutive games after a week one win over the Arizona Cardinals.


The 49ers will be without linebacker Aldon Smith, their best pass rusher. Smith checked into rehab this week following his arrest for a DUI on Friday morning. It is not yet known how long the 49ers will have to play without Smith. The team placed him on the non-football injury list.

After a week one quarterback rating of 129.4, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a 20.1 rating against the Seahawks and then a 49.9 rating against the Colts. He threw 4 interceptions and no touchdowns in his last two games.

Last week, the 49ers (1-2) were defeated 27-7 by the Indianapolis Colts. The Rams (1-2) were defeated 31-7 by the Dallas Cowboys.

For the 49ers, T Anthony Davis (shoulder), TE Vernon Davis (hamstring), S Raymond Ventrone (concussion), WR Kyle Williams (rib, knee), and LB Patrick Willis (groin) are listed as questionable. LB Navorro Bowman (wrist), C Jonathan Goodwin (elbow), RB Frank Gore (knee), G Mike Iupati (shoulder), DT Ray McDonald (ankle, ankle), CB Carlos Rogers (knee), and DT Justin Smith (shoulder) are listed as probable.

For the Rams, DE William Hayes (knee) and T Rodger Saffold (knee) are out. T Joe Barksdale (not injury related), WR Chris Givens (knee), LB James Laurinaitis (foot), T Jake Long (foot), S T.J. McDonald (knee), TE Mike McNeill (chest), RB Daryl Richardson (foot), and G Chris Williams (foot) are listed as probable.

The NFL revealed its complete 272-game 2021 regular-season schedule on Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. PT.

The connections to some of the all-time great safeties are strong for 49ers rookie Talanoa Hufanga as he begins his NFL career. Hufanga, who was selected by the 49ers in Round 5 of the 2021 NFL Draft after a standout career as a safety at USC, is currently at 49ers facilities with other members of his draft class as he prepares for rookie minicamp this weekend (Friday-Saturday). He spoke to reporters on Wednesday about his relationship to three legendary safeties in particular in Troy Polamalu, 49ers legend Ronnie Lott, and 49ers general manager John Lynch. Hufanga first spoke about Polamalu, with whom he has a well-documented relationship after the



Former 49ers GM likes Trey Lance over Zach Wilson

Scot McCloughan spent two seasons as the San Francisco 49ers general manager, helping build the roster eventually taken over by Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh. Before that, he was the team's VP of personnel. Matt Barrows of The Athletic spoke with McCloughan to get his opinion of his former team's most recent draft class. While his pre-draft grades had Zach Wilson, whom the New York Jets selected at No. 2, rated higher than Trey Lance, the 49ers' pick, McCloughan would have personally selected Lance over Wilson. He wouldn't have, however, traded two future first-round picks to move up to get him. The inexperience at North Dakota State and the level of competition created too many unknowns. But personally, he still liked Lance more than
