The Los Angeles Rams will face the San Francisco 49ers for the first time on Sunday during Week 6.
Unfortunately, the 49ers watched Garoppolo’s season come to an end early on after the quarterback suffered a torn ACL, but at least San Francisco is benefitting of their beloved quarterback being healthy in 2019.
Believe it or not, the 49ers are one of two remaining undefeated teams in the NFL (New England Patriots), meaning the Rams will have their hands full for this intense Week 6 battle.
While San Francisco is feeling great at the moment sitting on top of the division with a 4-0 record, Los Angeles happens to be the team with plenty of work to do sitting at 3-2 in third place, trailing both the 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
For a team coming off a Super Bowl berth last winter, this was the last position the Rams expected to be in during October, but the good news is there’s still plenty of time remaining in the regular season to turn things around.
Handing the 49ers their first loss of 2019 certainly won’t be easy since San Francisco sits in first place for a reason, but also the Rams should feel confident in their chances of pulling this off.
In fact, here are three reasons Los Angeles will in fact be the team that hands San Francisco that first loss, and put an end to their two-game losing streak in the process.
