49ers Lose in Embarrassing Fashion to Rams, Fall to 4-4


There isn’t much to say about the “game” between the San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams. Neither team wanted to win this game, but the 49ers didn’t want to win it more. The Rams leave Levis stadium with a win by the score of 13-10.

Many thought the 49ers would come out fresh from the bye, but instead they came out flatter than a piece of paper. The team couldn’t get anything on offense, and when they finally did, they literally fumbled the ball away on the goal line.

Despite Austin Davis throwing two interceptions and only five yards over 100, the 49ers were unable to pull out the win. On paper, Colin Kaepernick had a decent game with 237 yards and one touchdown, but he made the game losing mistake of fumbling on a quarterback sneak that would have won the game.

This wasn’t as much of a defensive battle as it was just a terrible offensive performance by both teams. Davis threw for two touchdowns, while Kaepernick lost two fumbles.

The 49ers’ offense consistently shot themselves in the foot by allowing the Rams, who only had six sacks the entire season, to sack Kaepernick seven times in this game.

  • The only bright spots from this game was from the defensive side of the ball. Antoine Bethea and Perrish Cox both intercepted Davis early, and Chris Borland racked up 18 tackles. Aaron Lynch also recorded his second career sack.

    Phil Dawson also missed a field goal right before halftime, that turned out to be incredibly important.

    The two teams weren’t the only ones who had a bad game, as there were many controversial calls by the referees.

    Nonetheless, with this loss the 49ers fall to 4-4, and lose even more ground in the playoff race.
