Following disappointing starts to the season, St. Louis and San Francisco will meet in what could be a key early season game for both teams' playoff chances.
Prior to the season, the 49ers were a popular Super Bowl pick while the Rams were considered to be an up-and-coming team and possible playoff contender. Now, after 1-2 starts, both teams are battling to get back to .500. With the Seattle Seahawks 3-0 and looking good, the loser of this game could risk falling three games behind in the division through four weeks.
Even though the 49ers won 11 games last season, no team may have played them harder than the Rams. The two games against St. Louis went to overtime, with the teams playing to a 24-24 tie in Week 10 and St. Louis knocking off the 49ers, 16-13, in Week 13.
Both teams are coming off blowout losses. St. Louis lost, 31-7, to Dallas on the road while San Francisco lost, 27-7, at home against Indianapolis.
