Game Day: St. Louis Rams at San Francisco 49ers

Nov 2, 2014 at 12:46 AM--


Today, the San Francisco 49ers will play host to the St. Louis Rams at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. It will be the teams' second meeting of the season.

The 49ers (4-3), who two weeks ago lost to the Denver Broncos by the score of 42-17, are coming off of a much needed bye week. Last week, the Rams (2-5) were defeated 34-7 by the Kansas City Chiefs.


The 49ers defense will start seeing some key players returning over the next few weeks. This week could see the return of linebacker Patrick Willis, who missed the game two weeks ago with a toe injury. He is listed as questionable and his status will be a game-time decision. While he has said that he is getting better every day, he still feels pain each time he takes a step.

The team will likely have to wait on the return of Aldon Smith. The league has not yet announced an early return for the linebacker, who is serving a nine-game suspension for violations of the NFL's personal conduct and substance abuse policies.

Jimmie Ward, who is listed as probable after a quadricep injury, is likely to play against the Rams. As is cornerback Chris Culliver. Cornerback Tramaine Brock is listed as questionable.

The offense will see the return of lineman Mike Iupati, who suffered a concussion against during the team's last meeting with the Rams. That line lost Daniel Kilgore for the season after he suffered a fractured left ankle against the Broncos. Rookie Marcus Martin will attempt to fill in for the remainder of the season.

During the two teams' last meeting, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick went 22 of 35 for 343 yards and three touchdowns on the road in St. Louis. Compare that to Rams quarterback Austin Davis, who went 21 of 42 for 236 yards, a touchdown and an interception. That interception was in the final moments of the game, clinching a 49ers' win.

This season, the Rams have had injury problems as well. Their latest includes left tackle Jake Long, who tore his ACL last week against the Chiefs. It is his second serious knee injury in the past 10 months. Also lost for the season is receiver Brian Quick, who suffered a shoulder injury.

Former 49ers head coach George Seifert will be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame today.

'Just more competition': 49ers' Fred Warner excited to face Rams' Matthew Stafford

Kyle Shanahan would have liked to look into the possibility of adding Matthew Stafford this offseason. He was shocked by how quickly the deal between the Detroit Lions and the Las Angeles Rams went down. As a result, Shanahan never got a chance to get his team into the mix. "I was trying to get involved in it," Shanahan shared earlier this month, sharing that he thought he had more time to do so. But it was too late. The trade was on its way to being completed. Now, Stafford is in the NFC West, and the San Francisco 49ers will have to face the veteran quarterback twice a season. News of the trade was shocking to many, especially those within



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.
