The 49ers were 4-12 last year and have already won four games this season. A perfect 4-0, San Francisco throttled the Browns, 31-3, on Monday Night Football in their last game. Jimmy Garoppolo managed the offense well and completed 20 of 29 passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns. The key to the fourth-ranked offense in the NFL (427.2 YPG) has been the run game, which is the best in the league with an average of 200 YPG. Matt Breida rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown and added another score receiving as well. Tevin Coleman added 97 yards and one touchdown to give the team 275 yards on the ground. Tight end Greg Kittle hauled in six catches for 70 yards and one touchdown.

Only the New England Patriots defense has performed better this year than San Francisco, which ranked second in total defense (257.5 YPG), second in pass defense (175.8 YPG) and fifth in rush defense (81.8 YPG). Against the Browns, the unit sacked Baker Mayfield four times and created four turnovers. Linebacker Fred Warner led the way with six tackles, while Nick Bosa and DeForest Buckner were ferocious on the line. Bosa tallied four tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble with Buckner notching four tackles, one sack, and one forced fumble.
While the 49ers will beat you with their rushing offense, the key to the Rams’ success lies in their passing attack. Los Angeles is fifth in total offense (413.6 YPG) and second in passing (317.4 YPG). Despite putting up 40 and 29 points in back-to-back weeks, it wasn’t enough to beat the Buccaneers and Seahawks. Jared Goff threw for 395 yards, one touchdown, and one interception against Seattle to bring his season total to 1,649 yards, which ranks third in the NFL. Cooper Kupp the team’s leading receiver added another 100-yard game to his season with nine catches for 117 yards and one touchdown. Kupp is 4th in the NFL with 505 receiving yards this season. It seems like Goff has a new weapon every week and this last weekend it was tight end Gerald Everett, who reeled in seven catches for 136 yards. Greg Zuerlein, who was three of four on the day, had a chance to win the game as time expired, but missed a 44-yard attempt, and the Seahawks squeaked out a 30-29 victory.
The Seahawks offense controlled most of the game with Russell Wilson tossing four touchdowns passes and Chris Carson rushing for 118 yards. The Rams’ defense will have to be better against the run on Sunday with the 1-2 punch of Breida and Coleman coming to town. Troy Reeder led the team with 13 tackles, while Eric Weddle and Corey Littleton each had seven.
