The San Francisco 49ers aren’t sitting where they hoped to be at 1-2 early in the season. The St. Louis Rams made some big offseason acquisitions and entered the season with high hopes but are also struggling early and were blown out by the Dallas Cowboys.
“We’re not going to hang our heads,” 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said, via ESPN. “Football is not easy, there are struggles.
“We’ve got some adversity, no question about it. We also have the rare opportunity to stare adversity in the face and whip it. That’s our goal.”
This is an interesting matchup, the Rams have the 8th ranked pass attack according to ESPN with an average of 282.7 yards per game. The 49ers have the league’s 8th best pass defense allowing only 199 yards a game.
The same is reversed for the 49ers offense, ranked 23rd with an average of 216.7 yards per game. The Rams have the 23rd ranked pass defense, allowing 288 yards a game.
