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.
