Week 9: vs St. Louis Rams

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Colin Kaepernick threw 24/39 for 263 yards passing, one TD and one interception at Denver prior to the 49ers bye, but he was sacked six times for -53 yards and eventually exited early during a 17-42 beat down in Mile High Stadium. Two games ago, he threw 22/35 for 343 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions (with zero sacks taken) at St. Louis - and here is the same opponent coming to San Francisco after a week' rest for the 49ers! This matchup looks favorable for the 49ers' passing attack. Last time around the block, the 49ers receivers shared around the TDs, with nine targets for 7/94/1 receiving flowing to Anquan Boldin; one for 1/80/1 going to Brandon Lloyd; and eight for 3/49/1 landing in Michael Crabtree's hands - only Steve Johnson (six for 5/53/0) among the lead wide receivers missed out on the scoring bonanza. The Rams' pass D coughed up 24/28 for 218 net yards passing to Alex Smith last week (zero TDs or interceptions, with two sacks for -8 yards taken). Two games ago, Russell Wilson bombed them for 23/36 yielding 292 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with three sacks taken for -21 yards. To date St. Louis has allowed 11 passing scores vs. just three interceptions (tied for next-to-last in the NFL) and only six sacks (dead last) generated. This s not a feared pass D, folks. Advantage, San Francisco.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs STL (6 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

Davis had a miserable return to action with two bad drops and a miscommunication that cost the team a touchdown. The miscommunication was a pass intended for Vance McDonald in the back of the end zone that Davis leapt at and batted down unintentionally just before the ball reached its intended target. Davis' only big play was a 17 yard reception that came on a dig route. He was wide open due to great play design.

2014 Week 7 vs DEN (5 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)

Davis had a pretty miserable game for the second week in a row. He ran a good route over the middle and caught a pass for 14 yards in the first quarter but it was downhill from there. He had two bad drops and did not look confident or comfortable.

Our View: Davis has an excellent matchup against a Broncos defense without Danny Trevathan, and he's as healthy as he has been in a while. He's back to being a boom/bust TE1.
