49ers @ Rams
Short and sweet here. The Niners are coming off a brutal home beating by the Colts, their second loss in a row. Jim Harbaugh’s team has not lost three games in a row under his watch. Even without Patrick Willis, Aldon Smith, and Nnamdi Asomugha on defense, I have a terribly hard time seeing this team drop a third straight.
The Rams didn’t lose to the Niners last year, beating them once and tying them in their other meeting, so another upset isn’t entirely out of the question. But given how bad the Rams have been at putting up points the last two weeks (in non-garbage time), I can’t see them replicating what the Colts did last week. Look for
San Francisco to go with a very run heavy
approach against a St. Louis team that gave up 175 yards to DeMarco Murray last
week. I’m expecting a low scoring,
fairly boring Thursday contest.
