Rams at 49ers: Preview, prediction, odds and pick

Rams at 49ers: Preview, prediction, odds and pick

Since being a longtime die-hard Los Angeles Rams fan often comes with more chaos than my heart can take, I usually don't bet on Rams games. And it might be awhile before anyone does. "But we know we can".

How so? Glad you asked. "It will be cool", Goff said. Kupp should have ample room to operate as the 49ers defend WRs Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods.

The Los Angeles Rams lost both games a season ago to the San Francisco 49ers.

But the more important circumstantial change is that new coaching staff and the coherent offensive philosophy that came with it.

"We're going to get it Thursday", Hyde said.

The headline teased of an apparently successful football handicapper and his opinion of the Rams-49ers game. Depending on how they play is when you go deep.

Moreover, the whole thing is well-defined and well-communicated.

The Rams' offense is the same one McVay was running in Washington - a derivation of Shanahan's system that LaFleur knows well because of his experience with both.

Jaquiski Tartt sounds like he's ready to play on Thursday night. His offensive line is better, particularly on his blind side, and his receiving corps is significantly more talented. All three of those wins have come against the Rams, which is unbelievable. With a final score of 27-20 and having outplayed the Redskins for most of the second half, one would have to take away from that game the realization that these aren't Jeff Fisher's Rams. But he also was stripped of the ball and threw a pass that resulted in a game-ending turnover.

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said there would be improvement against a 49ers offense that rushed for 159 yards against the Seahawks. Would the Rams have fired the head coach or Goff? "Not that these weren't smart guys or good coaches, but there were definitely a lot of voices talking at once".

Different, indeed. Goff, the No. 1 overall pick in 2016, entered the National Football League as a raw 21-year-old and didn't start his first game until Week 11.

LA struggled on Sunday in the first half of the game against Washington. He had to learn to operate from under center and manage a huddle - things he didn't have to do at Cal. "It's been very frustrating going two games so far without a touchdown but I think Thursday's going to be the day we flip that switch and we start putting points on the board". It was another sign of Goff's development.

He passed for 306 yards and a touchdown without an interception against the Colts.

The Rams aren't asking Goff to work miracles just yet.

It helps to start simple.

But the Rams had staked a large portion of the newly-relocated franchise to the 6-foot-4 kid from Novato, trading away six top-100 picks to move up to select him, so Goff being a bust wasn't really an option for the team.
