49ers Host Rams in Terrible NFL Matchup in Primetime

49ers Football

49ers and Rams Look at Rebuilding Progress

The Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers will meet at Levi’s Stadium on Thursday Night on NFL Network. The two longtime division rivals are both in a rebuilding process. The fact that the NFL puts this matchup on in Prime Time on its brand station shows the state of the NFL. The mediocrity on display across the league is apparent and the football is unwatchable at time. Below is a previews of this lousy game if you care.

Oddsmakers opened the Rams as -3-point favorites versus the 49ers, while the game’s total opened at 42. The Rams are still favored by 3-points but the total has dropped to 40. There are a few scattered 39.5 lines out there.

Last time out for San Francisco, they were a 12-9 loser as they battled the Seattle Seahawks on the road. The 49ers covered in the matchup as a +13.5-point underdog, while 21 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

San Francisco safety Eric Reid injured his knee and won’t play against the Rams. Linebacker Reuben Foster is not expected to play because of an ankle injury, either.

San Francisco running back Carlos Hyde has looked good in the team’s first two games. He will be a focal point against the Rams. Hyde is fourth in the league in rushing with 169 yards. The fact he is averaging 7.0 yards a carry may be more impressive. The 49ers’ ground game is the lacking in touchdowns by Hyde. He enters the Thursday night game with no rushing scores.

Rams Look to Improve Defensive Play

Last time out for Los Angeles, they were a 27-20 loser as they battled the Washington Redskins at home. The Rams failed to cover in the matchup as a -3-point favorite, while 47 combined points moved the game PUSH for totals bettors.

The Rams’ defense was bad against the Redskins in Week 2. Defensively they  will need to shore up their tackling while matching up against an improving offensive line. San Francisco guard Laken Tomlinson started in Week 2 after spending the preseason with the Lions. He was acquired in a trade and made a big impact on the interior run game. This week he will be facing one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL.

That lineman is Aaron Donald. Donald did not play in Week 1 after a training camp holdout. He looked sluggish in Week 2 against the Redskins. He finished with just one tackle and an assist.

Running back Todd Gurley, who was the 2015 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, is ranked eighth in the NFL with 128 yards. He is only averaging 3.7 yards a carry, but Gurley had two rushing scores this season. Gurley also has added value as a pass catcher. He has eight receptions for 104 yards and another score. The Rams will need Gurley to continue to be a dual-threat player against the 49ers defense.
