Welcome back to Rams up, your Los Angeles Rams podcast. We're a proud member of the Pigskin podcast network. We'll cover just about any SoCal sports team, but we're mostly about your Los Angeles Rams. I'm your host, mark, let's get to it.
Welcome back, RAM fans. The Rams drop another one to the Niners, 24 to 9. Kind of an ugly game.
The Rams could not overcome their deficiencies along the offensive line, and there are some other deficiencies. We'll get to Rance. Make no big plays the entire game, 49ers.
Make a handful that make the difference and just like that, the NFC West four teams at two and two.
You know the way.
I look at it as a ramfan is it hurts to lose these games to the Niners games like this?
But as I mentioned in the preview, their backs were against the wall in this game.
It would have been devastating had they lost.
And sure enough, they came through.
Gotta give him credit.
Made just enough big plays on offense, their defense was lights out all game long against a handicapped Rams offense.
To be honest, Rams will have another shot at these guys in a few weeks.
And possibly in the playoffs again.
We'll just have to see.
Hey, let's recap my fearsome 4 keys to the game and had some fails here.
Key number one was keep depot in check and we failed there. Now when they were just handing the ball off to him pretty good, but that one played a 57 yarder that was a Backbreaker.
How different would this game have been?
Know if Derion Kendrick had gotten his hand on that ball or someone had made a darn tackle, but depot, one of the best in the league, hammers the Rams once again with.
A big play.
And that was the first touchdown of the game.
Put the Niners up seven to three.
So that came number one.
Key #2, no more. Bend, don't break, get after Jimmy. I had mentioned that we had played three quarterbacks that used their legs quite a bit. Josh Allen. Marcus Mariota. Kyler Murray.
And then we get Jimmy G and Trent Williams is out.
But the Niners really countered that by just getting rid of the ball real quickly.
We got a little pressure on Jimmy, not a whole lot though.
He was just getting rid of the ball too quickly.
It was a really good game plan, kind of neutralized the advantage the Rams had as far as our defensive line against their offensive line, so we're going to have to rethink that next time we play them.
They weren't living on the run game, they were living on the quick pass, getting the ball out quickly to their playmakers.
So my key to the game, my #2 key to the game. I really got that wrong. I'm not sure what the defensive strategy should be.
But getting after Jimmy certainly wasn't the answer for some key #3 was when the physical battles on offense, and you know, I'm not going to say that was a total fail.
I I mean our offensive line gave up some sacks.
Obviously that was not pretty.
I didn't realize that we are going to have 3 backups in.
So I don't think we can really blame the rants for losing the physical battles, but we certainly didn't win enough of them, especially up front.
And fearsome became #4, and this is where I think I was right and the Rams failed was a creative game plan on offense.
Mix things up, being creative and early on I thought I saw a little bit of that. The rent play by Brandon Powell when I saw 22 Atwell was inactive.
I thought, you know what?
Brandon Powell is going to be part of this game plan.
He's going to get a lot of touches, maybe five or six, and after that one carry.
Never saw him again.
And it may have been as much on Matthew Stafford.
He really had tunnel vision.
I mean, how many times did he target Cooper Cup?
And as good.
As Cooper Cup is, that's not a recipe for success against a defense like this.
The game plan has to involve Alan Robertson, Tyler Higbee, who we did get involved quite a bit as well.
Kendall Blanton, Brandon Powell, Ben skowronek.
Get the running backs involved more in creative ways and you know there is a little bit of it, but clearly not enough.
It was just dropped back.
And where's Cooper?
I just don't think that's a recipe for success against a defense like this.
So creative game plan.
I think I was right.
That was a key to winning this game.
And we didn't do it.
You know, statistically, it wasn't a horrible game for Stafford.
Playing behind a patchwork offensive line, 32 for 48 for 254 yards. Had the one interception misfired in the redzone a couple times, that really hurt.
Could have changed the entire complexion of the game if he hits Higbee on that one play. Rams rushed 18 times for just 22 yards.
That's not going to get it done.
And again, the situation with their offensive line, it's somewhat understandable, but that's where that creativity comes in again, right?
Cooper Kupp, by the way.
14 receptions, a career high for 122 yards. Jimmy G through for 239 yards.
But on just 16 completions, Jeff Wilson was kept in check for most of the game. But that 32 yard run and a couple of others, he ended up with 74 yards and.
Hey bro Samuel, 6 receptions for 115 yards. I don't even want to know how many of those came after the catch.
It was most of them, and probably most importantly, Itrans over three in the redzone, through the pick six fumble the ball away.
So as sad as this performance was, you could almost see the Rams win in this game if they made a couple plays in the redzone and didn't turn the ball over.
But but you got to give the Niners credit.
Their defense really got it done tonight.
They're offensive game plan with Trent Williams out.
Neutralize the Rams.
Pass rush neutralized.
Edge the Rams had there.
And that's what you get, a 24 to 940 niner victory. So the Rams head home to host Dallas.
The 49ers crossed the country to play Carolina the entire NFC West at two and two. The Cardinals host the Eagles, so that'll be a tough one for them. And this is where the strength of schedule.
Gets a little screwed up the Rams and divisional champions get the Cowboys, the Cardinals a second place team get the Eagles and would you rather play?
Not that the Cowboys are going to be a pushover.
But I'll take the Cowboys at this point and the Seahawks also tuned to, they travel to the Saints so every weekend it's going to be a shake up of the NFC West.
The way this is going, it's early.
We're showing by the Rams.
But don't give up hope.
It's a long season.
We'll be back in a second where they're game capture.
And then after that, some additional notes on the game and finally our loop around the league.

So let's walk through this game possession by possession. The Rams got the ball first. It went on an 8 minute 14 play drive. Matt Gay capping it off with a 39.
Yard field goal.
There is a big third in one conversion took up a third and five conversion to Higbee.
Takes a sack on 2nd and nine from the 18 and the Rams settle for the field goal.
San Francisco on their first possession, converts a third and nine and a third and.
5 49ers, very successful on slant patterns across the middle ramps missing Troy Hill I think. Then on 1st and 10 from the Rams.
32 After a timeout, Jeff Wilson rips through the middle of the Rams defense basically untouched. Niners up 7 to 3.
Rams next possession, A1 yard run. Stafford is hurried on his next drop back and then is sacked 3 and out. The Rams punt.
49ers next possession takes us into the second quarter. They drive to the Rams 43, and then on 3rd and six the Rams finally get a stop. Jimmy G second in completion of the.
Game they punt.
Into the end zone.
So it's actually just a net gain of 23 yards. Rams have the ball to 20. Jeremiah Kolone in at center at this point, so the Rams offensive line, Joseph Noteboom, Bobby Evans, Jeremiah Kolone.
AJ Jackson and Rob Havenstein.
So only the bookend tackles from the starting unit.
Stafford has no time on this next drive.
And again, another three and out.
49ers and exposition and incompletion. Up tipped pass and then another incompletion and they punt it right back to the Rams.
From the Rams 35, they start to mix it up. Brandon Powell gets a touch. Acres picks up a nice run, Higbee another critical reception.
But they can't cash it in, stalling the red zone, and Matt gay kicks a 29 yard field goal to make it 7 to 6 Niners and then an SF next drive.
Jimmy G trying to hit depot Samuel in the left flat.
Gary on Kendrick goes for the interception at least trying to tip the pass and.
He misses it.
And Deebo Samuel runs 57 yards, breaking several tackles. This is exactly what you don't want to see from the 49ers offense if you're a Rams.
But give them credit, Samuel.
Looking like one of the best players in the NFL, which he is, and the 49ers are up 14 to six really based on.
Two big plays.
A 32 yard run and a 57 yard catch and run Rams next drive. They managed to pick up one first down on a pass to cup and then Stafford hits Cup again for seven yards, but then two sacks.
And the Rams after punt, 49ers get the ball back and they basically turn the ball over on downs as the clock runs out.
And we go to the half 14 to 6 49ers.
Second-half Niners got the ball first. They picked up one first down on a pass to George Kittle.
Then they have to punt and the Rams go on another long drive. 16 plays, 75 yards, cup 6 receptions on this drive.
A big pasta bend Scott Ronic as well, but Stafford misfires in the redzone twice.
One to Higbee looked like a sure TD rancel for another field.
Called 14 tonight.
So as poorly as the Rams are playing overall, they're making a game of it at this point. On the kick off, the 49ers fumble it, but recover.
And then sure enough, on the next play, a big pass to Kyle Jusick 35 yards but Kiddle us out of bounds at the back of the end zone on what looked like a TD at first.
And the 49ers settle for a field goal to make it 17 to 9, keeping the Rams in this game. But the Rams next possession 3 and out, punted away.
SF set up at the Rams 45 after a nice return, but the Rams hold and the Niners miss a field goal and it seems like the stars might be aligning for the Rams to steal a win here.
But on the next drive, RAM starting from their own 33 with about 8 minutes left, Stafford throws.
A pick six screen pass trying to get it to cup.
And justice like that. It's 24 to 9 Rams next possession had a nice.
Little drive going.
13 place, 44 yards.
Just inching their way down the field, though, and then it Stafford's arm is hit right before he releases it. It's called a fumble. Niners have the ball, 3 plays, one yard, and they punt.
And there, and surprisingly, still trying to push the ball down the field a little bit. 3 plays, 18 yards, end of game. Final score 24 to 9.
Football is back, baby.
We're back to seeing Stafford slinging beautiful balls all over the field to Cooper Kupp.

Look at some additional notes from this game.
We'll start out with my fearsome 4 big plays of the game, and as I like to say, I learned from a wise football man years ago, told me about the four or five biggest plays of the game.
Tell me who owned those?
Big plays and I can probably tell you who won the game and in this game.
All four big plays belonged to the Niners.
Unfortunately, most of these are going to be pretty obvious if you're watching this game.
The first one, that 32 yard Sprint through the Rams defense by Jeff Wilson. You're basically forcing Jimmy G to move the ball book down the field slowly.
You haven't given up much in the running game.
Make them earn it, and then Wilson gashes you like that.
That's gotta hurt.
73 49ers and they have one big play under their belt. The next big play. You don't want to hear about this again, but it's a 57 yard catch and run.
By dipo Samuel Derion Kendrick, our young cornerback and this guy is going to be a player.
I feel really good about him, him and Kobe Durant.
True, really good draft picks, but big play #2 the Rams can't buy a big play in this game.
49ers have a 32 yard run and a 57 yard catch and run. Two big plays in that second big play put them up 14 to 6. The next big play was a misfire.
By the Rams actually on offense or in the third quarter, now it's 14 to 6.
The Rams drive to the San Francisco 7 yard line, 1st and goal.
And Higbee is open in the right flat.
Stafford tries to deliver one of his patented little sidearm throws and basically throws it behind him into the dirt.
Higbee catches that ball.
It becomes 14 to 12 and the Rams are either kicking the one pointer to make it 14 to 13, possibly going for two.
But instead they're kicking another field goal and it's still 14 to 9 in the fourth big play.
Rams still have a shot at this.
This is where I thought they might be able to steal this game after the missed field goal, but Stafford once again tries to get it to Cooper Kupp in the right flat.
Little Screen Pass would have gained 5 yards properly. Instead, it's intercepted. Pick six for the 49ers, more or less game over.
Put the Niners up 24 to 9 and that was your final score. Some additional notes on this game.
22 Atwell was inactive. Malcolm Brown was active and a lot of people made a big deal about that, especially on Twitter. Malcolm Brown is back and active.
Of God, it's a great pass blocker.
I know we got some snap schemes out there for that misfire to Higbee on 1st and goal from the seven, but didn't impact this game at all.
From what I.
Could see the 49ers without Javon Kinlaw and then Arik Armstead went out. Didn't seem to really matter.
They didn't miss a beat along that defensive line.
The Rams, of course, started the game without Brian Allen and David Edwards, and then lost Coleman Shelton.
So as I mentioned in our game capture at the end of the game, our starting offensive line from left to right, Joseph Noteboom, Bobby Evans.
I had to think about it here.
Who was, uh, right card?
It was AJ Jackson and Rob Havenstein.
Like to give out game balls.
Who do I give game balls out to?
I'm going to give game balls to two guys and you know, it's always Cooper Cup.
I don't even mention Cooper Cup anymore.
We're just going to call this to Cooper Cup.
Player prop award.
Who besides Cooper Cup, deserves a game ball?
Hey, how about Grant Haley?
He was really mixing it up, playing well from what I could see.
Be interested to see his Pro Football focus grade and darrion Kendrick, even though he gave up that big play.
Gotta love that guy.
He's very confident.
He's mixing it up, not backing down.
Look, it's a little chirpy out there.
I swear sometimes I was getting him and Ramsey confused.
They look very similar.
Out there, and maybe that's a good thing, Kendrick, 6 feet 190, Ramsey 61194. But game balls, I can't go really beyond that. I think are two young cornerbacks Haley and Kendrick played.
There's probably some other guys.
We'll talk more about it on our next drop when I see some Pro Football focus grades and some snap counts.
Who stepped up who didn't.
Little Bobby Wagner.
I think it also had a good game, that tackle at the goal line inside the three with something else.
Bobby Wagner bringing it and who screwed up?
Any goats in this game?
Well, I think Stafford was a little bit off statistically.
As I mentioned, not bad, but I really think he had tunnel vision.
There were plays where I saw Allen Robinson.
Then there's got to be other guys.
He's got to get involved.
I I don't know if it's McVay.
I don't know if it's Stafford, but wasn't happy with how that played out.
Cooper Cup is awesome.
I love the guy.
We gotta find a way to spread the ball.
Around now coaches corner.
I've already kind of hammered on it, just a lack of creativity on offense and I'll leave it at that as far as refs go, that illegal contact that they called on the Niners against Cooper Kupp.
I didn't see it.
Announcers didn't see it either.
That was a weird call in a game where they really weren't calling many penalties.
They did miss a face mask on the 49ers, though, so it probably evened out announcers. I thought they were OK, and I gotta give props to my guy, Troy Aikman. Not a big Troy Aikman fan, but I loved his line.
About how awesome it is, what great weather it is and how beautiful it is in California, especially compared to Texas where it just dipped under 90 degrees.
I kind of enjoyed that, but I'm a California guy.
And yes, I love Al. I love SoCal, I love California. So when a guy on national TV reminds the rest of the nation of how good we have it, I'm OK with that.
So if I.
Had any final words on this game Rams are really scraping?
Put a team together out there to play against.
A very good divisional opponent now in the 49ers defense. They're missing some guys, too, but I don't think they're as dinged up as we are.
Van Jefferson would have really helped in this game.
A healthy opega?
Heck yeah, our offensive line 3 backups.
So it'll be interesting to see how this matchup pans out in a few weeks, hoping the Rams are a little healthier.
Brian Allen should be back.
David Edwards should be back.
We don't know about Van Jefferson.
That's after the bye week.
He should be ready.
So this could.
Be a completely different game in LA.
The second game will be the more important one, so chin up, RAM fans.
It's a long season Rams aren't done yet.
We'll wrap things up with.
Our loop around the league taking a look at the Thursday night and Sunday games from this past week.
And we'll have another drop later this week, and possibly a YouTube channel drop as well.
A preview of the Ram Cowboy game and another segment of who's pumped?
This should be a fun one.
Let's get into our loop around the league that Thursday night game. Bengals 27, Dolphins 15. This is a big win for the Bengals to get back to two and two and the Dolphins their first loss. Really a battle between Tyreek Hill.
And T Higgins Hill 10 catches for 160 yards.
How do you go for 160 yards without a TT? He managed to do that and on the other side Higgins 7 catches for 124 yards in one TD. I was really impressive jopar on this game, just getting rid of the ball on schedule.
Redwood pressure was arriving time and time again. 20, four, 31287 yards and two TD's. Two had left after that scary incident.
I was really surprised.
They kept on focusing on his hands and his arms.
I thought the broadcasting crew could have handled that better on national television, but at the same time it really.
They brings into focus how the NFL is handled or I should say has not handled this concussion protocol as far as being consistent in protecting players.
And I think we're already starting to see some changes coming out of this game, and in fact, I might even say that to his injury might have a little bit to do with why.
David Edwards did not play in the 40 Niner game. The Vikings take care of the Saints 28 to 25 in London.
That was an.
Incredible game, really.
Back and forth, back and forth, down to the very.
And, and you know, I'm not a fan of the New Orleans Saints.
I have my reasons.
But man, are they the most screwed franchise in the history of the league.
They had a couple of calls in this game that weren't just really bad, especially the hands to the face call on Matthew that gave the Vikings a first down.
That was followed by a questionable pass interference on Marcus Lattimore that set up the Vikings for their final touchdown.
And then the Saints tried to kick the game tying field goal from 61 yards and it clunks off the cross.
But over the years, no team has been screwed as much as the Saints by the refs, and I don't even think it's up for debate, to be honest with you.
And one final note.
In this game, Chris Olave, the working wide receiver for the Saints, is really starting to emerge.
He looks like he might be, at this point, the best wide receiver in this class.
That's going to change.
There are a lot of really good rookie wide receivers.
Greg London went eighth in the draft, Garrett Wilson 10th, Alavi 11th and Jameson Williams 12th.
The Lions, and the reason I'm bringing this up is the Detroit Lions were just Jack.
Picked up when the Saints took a lava and they were able to ****** Jamison Williams, who is probably going to red shirt the entire year.
At least it looks that way due to that ACL injury, and you start to wonder if maybe the line should have tamed down that celebration.
Right now it doesn't look very smart, and I wonder how Alaba is going to feel that first time he line.
It's up against the lions.
That'll be fun.
Morning Saints looking like they got it right at this point.
They're going to have to wait a while to see how Williams pans out. And how about those Falcons? They beat the Browns 23 to 20 at home. It's getting so difficult to tell who the good teams aren't.
Even the bad teams are.
I was ranting about the Browns after last week.
And I said the Falcons look like they may be getting it together, and they did in this 1 / 200 yards rushing.
Tyler Algier the Ricky 10 rushes, 84 yards. He's guy like for the Rams. Browns are driving for potentially the tying field goal. Grady Jarrett comes up with a big sack and Jacoby Brissett.
Is intercepted on the next play, Falcons improved to two and two.
Browns fall to two and two, and this is the first time the Arthur Smith Atlanta Falcons have won two in a row.
And the Chargers get out of Houston with a 34 to 24 win, and for a little while.
It looked like.
It was going to be the charges being the Chargers.
They were up 27 to 7, the Texans close to 27 to 21. The Chargers stumbled away the kickoff, and the Texans were set up deep in Charger territory.
But the defense roasts the occasion, helped the Texans to a field goal, and the charges checked on another touchdown.
My guy, Damien Pierce, 14, rushes for 131 yards in a TD for the Texans. That's the rookie running back that really shined in the preseason. Big win it for the charges in that Ultra competitive AFC.
West they improved to two and two Texans, 03 and one.
The Jets take care of the Steelers 24 to 20. At the end of that game, it was Zach Wilson versus Kenny Pickett.
Pickett taken over for the benched Michta Butsky. He ended up throwing 3 interceptions. Zach Wilson really stepped up at the end of that game, taking his team on a game-winning 11 play, 70 yard.
Dr capped off by a touchdown by another rookie running back, Breece Hall, Mike Tomlin.
Steelers slipped to one and three and The Jets.
They got a really good roster if they just need to learn how to win.
Today was a stepping stone.
Perhaps they improved to two and two.
The Cowboys 25, the commanders 10. Cooper rushed the first quarterback in cowboy history to start four, and, oh, this was one of the less entertaining games of Sunday morning. But because the Cowboys are still America's team, I guess the Los Angeles area was stuck.
Of this game, unless of course you have Sunday ticket.
You get to watch the Chargers, Texans, which was a pretty good game at the end, and the commanders, Cowboys, and probably the most anticipated game of the day.
The Buffalo Bills.
Beat the Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore 23 to 20. Jim Harbaugh tried to outsmart the room in this one and it backfired.
2020 Game Baltimore has the ball thrown five. They drive all the way to the Bills 2 yard line, 4th and goal.
Instead of kicking the field goal hard, Bob decides to go for it.
They are stopped.
The ball is actually intercepted in the end zone.
So instead of having the bills pinned at the two, they're out of the 20 and the bills drive for the game-winning field goal.
And another game that I was really looking forward to, the Eagles knocked off the Jags 29 to 21.
This would have been good news for the Rams if the Jags had won this.
And at the start of the scam, if you watched the first quarter, the Jags looked like the better team took a 14 nothing lead.
But it all came apart largely due to four lost fumbles by Trevor Lawrence, and he also threw an interception 5 turnovers by their quarterback.
So the Eagles remain undefeated and the Jags, I'm telling you, they're a really good football team. But they slipped 2 into the Eagles, by the way, ran for over 200 yards.
In this game.
Another fun game. The Seahawks beat the Lions 48 to 45. Kind of torn on this one. The Seahawks over 5 1/2 winds was my bed of the year.
Well, they've got two now, but I really thought the Lions would handle them.
And remember this was my survivor pick.
However, when I found out St Brown, their star receiver.
I was out.
I switched my.
Pick to Green Bay.
But if you had told me the lions are going to put 45 points up on the Seahawks, I.
Would have believed it.
If you had told me the Seahawks were going to put 48 points up on the Lions, I would have said I want some of whatever you're smoking.
But that's what happened and a lot of it had to do with Geno Smith and Rashaad Penny, Smith 320 yards and two TD's.
Rashaad Penny, looking like he did at the end of last year. 17 rushes for 151 yards and two TD's. And how about Jared Goff? I mean, the Lions kept on, falling behind, kept on come.
Back Goff did everything he could without his best receiver, 26 for 39 for 378 yards and four TDs.
His tight end? Get this TJ hockenson, 179 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Yes, that's right, his tight end. The Giants beat that.
Bears 20 to 12. Daniel Jones running for two touchdowns and the Titans beat the Colts in a big divisional showdown 2417.
Thought the Colts were getting it turned around? I guess not. They fall 212 and 1. Derrick Henry had a big day, 114 yards rushing and one TD.
Matt Ryan did everything he could, 27 for 37356 yards passing with two TDs. But Jonathan.
Pretty much a non factor. Average 2.1 yards per carry, 20 rushes for 42 yards. So the Colts right now might be the most disappointing team in the league.
A lot of.
People pick them to win that division. No time to panic. But they're not in a good place right now. The Cardinals beat the Panthers 26 to 16.
You get to two and two. The Panthers are now one in 26 under Matt Rhule when the opponent scores at least 17 points.
That's including 24 such losses in a row. I have a feeling to know who the first coach to get fired is going to be.
The Packers beat the Patriots 27 to 24 in overtime, patriots rolling with their third string quarterback Bailey zappe out of Western Conn.
Lucky. Gotta give the Patriots credit, though. I tell you, if if you told me my roster had 50 random guys and I needed to win tomorrow, Bill Belichick's my guy.
No doubt about it, but I did find myself rooting for the Patriots, which is kind of odd.
That would have been really to the Rams benefit if the Patriots can the Packers.
Lost a second. Would have been nice if the Jags had beaten the Eagles and the Raiders beat the Broncos 32 to 23. Finally get their first win.
With their new head coach.
They improved to one in three of the Broncos.
Hard to believe that they're tuned to actually that.
Offenses look pathetic at times and I'm still calling it.
Broncos are going to miss the playoffs and Sunday night, finally in the NFC contender lost to an AFC Team, chiefs beating the Bucks.
41 to 31.
Couple things stood out in this game to me. Well, #1 the Bucs defense, which has been lights out carrying this team for the first three weeks, gives up 41 points to the Chiefs.
Granted, the Chiefs are a great offense, but still. Tom Brady throws 52 passes. Why did Tom Brady throw 52 passes? Well, it might had something to do with.
The fact that the Bucs ran for three yards, that's right, three yards, 6 rushes for three yards.
An average of half a yard.
That has to be troubling for Bucs fans, don't you?
But good news for the Rams, good news for all the other NFC contenders.
Bucks have an easy schedule, especially compared to the Rams, so it's very important that they lose these games.
So if there is a playoff game between the Rams and the Bucks, it's on the West Coast instead of the East Coast.
Perhaps that's our loop around the league now.
