The San Francisco 49ers were dominant in their win last week at Pittsburgh, 30-7. They held the Steelers to just 41 total rushing yards and 198 passing yards. The defense also had a pair of interceptions. Brock Purdy played in his first game since that playoff injury against the Eagles. He was 19-for-29 for 220 yards and two TD's and no INT's. Chrisitan McCaffrey was great, rushing for 152 yards and a touchdown while Brandon Aiyuk led the receivers with 129 yards and a pair of TD's.
The Rams trailed at halftime last week at Seattle, 7-13. However, a big second half rally and a shutout of the Seattle offense led to an easy win, 30-13. The Rams had 426 yards of offense to just 180 by the Seahawks. Matthew Stafford was 24-of-38 for 334 yards. Kyren Williams led the rushing attack with 52 yards and a pair of TD's.
I see this 49ers team as one of the teams to beat this year with their balanced offense and dominating defense. Don't expect the Rams can find the same offensive success they had last week. This 49ers are led by their great defense. My free play for Sunday is on the 49ers - 7.
