THE TEAM NEWS

LOS ANGELES RAMS

  • Los Angeles Rams produced a terrible performance which went against their recent efforts against Arizona and Seattle and their play-off hopes now hang in the balance after their heavy loss to Dallas.
  • The Rams now sit two games behind Minnesota in the race for the final wildcard spot but their season is more than likely over with the Vikings needing to win just one of their final two matches to seal their place in the post-season.
  • Gerald Everett had been expected to make his comeback from a knee injury in that game against the Cowboys but the tight end was again forced to sit out for a third straight game with Tyler Higbee producing another 100+ yard performance in his absence.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

  • San Francisco will point to their mounting injury list as a factor behind just their third loss of the year but they should have been good enough to come out on top against Atlanta with the 49ers blowing numerous chances to seal the game.
  • The Falcons were able to march down the field on their final drive of the game and scored the touchdown they needed to go ahead before adding a further score as time expired with the 49ers failing to keep hold of the ball as they tried to keep it alive from the kick-off.
  • The 49ers did not report any further injuries after the game but with some key defensive players sidelined last week including defensive lineman Dee Ford and cornerback Richard Sherman, San Francisco will be more concerned with getting those players back on the field.

THE PREDICTION

Both of these teams suffered shock defeats last week and although San Francisco will be disappointed by their loss, their place in the play-offs is already secure. The same cannot be said for Los Angeles Rams who need a miracle to advance to the post-season after their loss to Dallas and that will cap a disappointing campaign for the team that made the Super Bowl last season. Both teams will be eager to bounce back from their poor showings but the 49ers should be able to respond on home turf.
