It’s win and you’re in for the San Francisco 49ers this weekend. On Sunday, the Niners head to beautiful SoFi Stadium to face the LA Rams as 4-point underdogs, and if they win, they’ll punch their ticket to the postseason. The Rams, who’ve already clinched, will play for a better seed in the NFC playoffs. Game time is 4:25 PM ET, and the total is pegged at 44 points.
As of Wednesday morning, we are not sure who will quarterback the 49ers in their big game on Sunday. Jimmy Garoppolo sat out in Week 17 with a torn UCL in his thumb on his throwing hand. Backup QB Trey Lance stood in and guided the team to a 23-7 win over the Houston Texans that saw the 49ers’ defense and ground game play well.
The Rams have won five in a row and can finish the season with an impressive 13-4 mark. The team has rebounded from a three-game skid in the middle of the season that included a 31-10 road loss at San Francisco. Matthew Stafford was intercepted twice and passed for just one touchdown. In the Rams’ Week 17 game, Stafford struggled again, getting picked twice in the first half, with one returned for a touchdown.
