Rams beat 49ers 27-6: Game recaps from Nov. 1

Nov 1, 2015 at 1:36 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers' offensive struggles continued in St. Louis against the Rams. As a team, they had just 189 net yards with only 38 of those being rushing yards. The 49ers have not scored a touchdown in eight full quarters now.

On a play that pretty much summarizes the 49ers' season so far, QB Colin Kaepernick didn't see uncovered WR Torrey Smith. Making matters worse is that he was uncovered prior to the ball being snapped, waved his arms and jumped up and down to get the attention of his quarterback, and WR Jerome Simpson also became uncovered just prior to the ball being snapped.

Kaepernick was 20 of 41 for 162 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Kaepernick was the team's leading rusher with 28 yards. Simpson, who recently returned after serving a six-game suspension, led the team in receiving with 34 yards on three receptions.

The 49ers were plagued by injuries against the Rams. RB Reggie Bush (knee), S LJ McCray (knee), TE Garrett Celek (concussion), RB Mike Davis (hand), CB Kenneth Reaser (ankle), and P Bradley Pinion (calf) all left the game with injuries.

CB Kenneth Acker also briefly left the game, but returned to the field. He is getting X-rays for a possible rib injury.


WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) and RB Carlos Hyde (foot) were both inactive with injuries. That left lone Kendall Gaskins to finish the game as the team's lone healthy running back. Gaskins had only six yards on five carries. On Saturday, Gaskins was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad. To make room for him, the team released former Australian rugby league star, RB Jarryd Hayne.

Should Hayne clear waivers, he will likely be re-signed on Monday.

Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed for his fourth straight 100+ yard game as his phenomenal rookie season continues. He finished the game with 133 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Rams QB Nick Foles was 14 of 23 for 191 yards and a touchdown. WR Tavon Austin was just two yards short of a 100-yard game on just four receptions. As a whole, the Rams amassed 388 total net yards against the 49ers.

The 49ers will now begin to prepare for a home game against the visiting Atlanta Falcons at Levi's Stadium on Sunday, November 8.

Silver: Cornerstone pieces make the 49ers the team to beat in 2021

NFL Media analyst Michael Silver has a lot of belief in the San Francisco 49ers' chances of competing during the upcoming season. He feels head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad can bounce back from its disappointing injury-plagued 2020 campaign and has the pieces in place to become the team to beat in 2021. "I think they're going to come back strong," Silver told Steve Wyche and Judy Battista on NFL Network's Total Access. "You saw the bold move to trade up for the No. 3 pick. They're going to get a quarterback of Kyle Shanahan's choosing, and you're going to have a lot of difference-makers out there on that field." San Francisco has put itself in a position to acquire one of the top quarterback prospects in this month's draft. Right now, Justin Fields of



Rams' Sean McVay believes 49ers are confident in their draft strategy

The San Francisco 49ers' move up nine spots from the No. 12 overall pick last month sent shockwaves across the NFL. News of the blockbuster move broke during Zach Wilson's pro day, taking a little away from the event as everyone tried to wrap their heads around the impact — not just on the draft but on the NFC West and NFL landscape for years to come. The move up to the No. 3 spot leaves San Francisco without a first-round pick in each of the next two years. Someone who knows a thing or two about building a roster without first-round picks is the coach of the NFC West rival Los Angeles Rams — Sean McVay. McVay and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan are close friends, but you can bet the Rams coach is being kept in the dark about the Bay Area team's



Mock Draft Roundup: The Mac Jones-to-49ers Chatter is Deafening

The 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last month, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. The first Mock Draft Roundup featured primarily defensive players but NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to the quarterback position.



Why the 49ers should not draft Mac Jones at No. 3

Shockwaves reverberated around the NFL last month when the 49ers traded up with the Miami Dolphins to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. By giving away its first- and third-round picks in 2022, and another first-rounder in 2023, San Francisco made its mega move in upgrading the quarterback room for its foreseeable future. While the team has maintained a public stance of keeping current quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this coming season, this trade signified its dissatisfaction with Garoppolo's services, as the 49ers are expected to select his successor with their third overall pick in the draft at the end of this month. Most predict that the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets, who hold the first and second overall picks in this year's draft,
