Through 2 Quarters

The San Francisco 49ers have exploded for 21 points against Los Angeles’ defense, already eclipsing their previous tally against the Miami Dolphins last week. San Francisco is way out in front at halftime with a 21-6 lead over Los Angeles.

QB Jimmy Garoppolo has led the way so far for the 49ers, as he has passed for three TDs and 215 yards on 21 attempts. Los Angeles has enjoyed the tag-team combination of WR Robert Woods and QB Jared Goff. The former has snatched one receiving TD, while the latter has passed for one TD and 73 yards on 14 attempts.

This is tied with the most points San Francisco has had yet this season going into the third quarter.

What to Know

The Los Angeles Rams lost both of their matches to the San Francisco 49ers last season on scores of 7-20 and 31-34, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. Los Angeles and San Francisco will face off in an NFC West battle at 8:20 p.m. ET Sunday at Levi’s Stadium. The Rams will be strutting in after a win while San Francisco will be stumbling in from a loss.

When you finish with 321 more yards than your opponent like Los Angeles did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They took down the Washington Football Team 30-10. Los Angeles QB Jared Goff was slinging it as he passed for two TDs and 309 yards on 30 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Near the top of the highlight reel was Goff’s 56-yard TD bomb to WR Robert Woods in the second quarter.

Meanwhile, the evening started off rough for San Francisco last week, and it ended that way, too. Their bruising 43-17 defeat to the Miami Dolphins might stick with them for a while. The 49ers were down 37-17 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. San Francisco’s loss came about despite a quality game from RB Raheem Mostert, who picked up 90 yards on the ground on 11 carries.

This next game is expected to be close, with the Rams going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

Los Angeles’ victory brought them up to 4-1 while San Francisco’s loss pulled them down to 2-3. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: Los Angeles comes into the matchup boasting the second most rushing touchdowns in the league at seven. The 49ers are completely their equal: they also come into the contest with seven rushing touchdowns.
