The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Los Angeles Rams 24-16 on Sunday Night Football at Levi’s Stadium. The Niners came into the game after being embarrassed in a losing effort last week against the Miami Dolphins. The LA Rams were fresh off of an East Coast thrashing of the Washington Football Team in Week 5.
The SportsCastr News NFL team of Joe Noobo and Lawrence Owen did not expect this result. The Rams were 2.5 point favorites heading into Sunday Night Football and the over/under was set at 51.5 points. The underdog 49ers were able to pull out a victory thanks to the tandem of QB Jimmy Garoppolo and TE George Kittle. Kittle caught seven passes for 109 yards, along with securing one of the three touchdowns thrown last night by Garoppolo.
The LA Rams were unable to find similar offensive success as QB Jared Goff was only able to muster 198 yards through the air, completing 50% of his passes. The SportsCastr guys were also quick to point out that Rams star lineman, Aaron Donald, was unable to generate pressure throughout the game. After a four sack performance in Week 5, Donald was held to only two tackles against Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers.
Following the SNF recap, the SportsCastr News NFL’s Joe Noobo and Lawrence Owen provided brief insight into a number of Sunday’s match-ups. Both Joe Noobo’s Ravens and Lawrence Owen’s Colts had scares against inferior opponents before pulling out their respective W’s.
Week 6 has featured many close games and stellar highlights. The action will conclude tonight when the Chiefs take on the Bills (5pm) and the Cowboys take on the Cardinals (8:15pm).
