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.

How the 49ers can beat the Arizona Cardinals with Trey Lance

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The time has finally come: Trey Lance, the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, will be making his first NFL start against the daunting Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in a division game that certainly should be a crucial one for both parties involved. Lance will be the sixth quarterback to start a game in the 2021 quarterback class, as Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, Mac Jones, and Davis Mills have all made their first career starts as well. Those quarterbacks haven't had much success yet. They've gone a combined 3-14 during their starts, so Lance will be looking to change that narrative, although he faces a tough opponent in the Cardinals. With Lance being the focal point of the offense, instead of Jimmy Garoppolo, let's look at the

49ers remaining positive despite three-game losing streak

The San Francisco 49ers aren't anywhere near where they want to be five games into the regular season, but they're also not exactly down on themselves either as their bye week gets underway. The 49ers fell 17-10 to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, which marked their third consecutive loss after opening the season with wins over the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles. The loss sent the 49ers to 2-3 on the year after defeats at the hands of the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks in previous weeks, and at the moment they face a sizable deficit in the NFC West behind the 5-0 Cardinals and 4-1 Los Angeles Rams. They're also dealing with a long list of injuries, most notably those to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (calf), tight end George Kittle (calf), running



John Lynch 'fully confident' 49ers can rebound from 3-game losing streak

The San Francisco 49ers started 2-0 but have since lost three consecutive games. No one inside the organization is panicking, though. Instead, the focus remains on one game at a time. That means looking toward the Indianapolis Colts, not backward at the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals. At 2-3, San Francisco sits in last place within the NFC West. However, general manager John Lynch is confident he and head coach Kyle Shanahan have built a roster that can rebound. The 49ers are in their bye week, and a lot of football remains in this 17-game season. "I'm fully confident [the pieces are in place to turn things around] because of the people in our room and the character of the people in our room, because of the people we have in leadership
