The San Francisco 49ers fell to 0-3 after a sloppy, mistake-filled bout versus the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football. Niner Noise looks at the good, bad and ugly from Week 3.
Thursday Night Football games are rarely good, and such was the case in Week 3.
Well, at least for the now-0-3 San Francisco 49ers.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan remains winless, as the Niners dropped this home contest to the visiting Los Angeles Rams 41-39.
San Francisco 49ers
It’s weird to think the Rams actually have an offense. Or, perhaps, San Francisco’s defense was simply too permeable after showcasing some strength against the Seattle Seahawks less than a week ago.
Or it’s just another Thursday night game on a short week.
Either way, the Niners lost control of this game on the first offensive snap, with quarterback Brian Hoyer tossing a near-pick six, which eventually led to a Rams touchdown the first play.
And from that point onward, San Francisco was playing to catch up.
At least on the positive note, the Niners offense started to click at times throughout the game. The 49ers managed to stage some late-game heroics in the fourth quarter — a point when most probably felt the Rams “had it in the bag.”
So let’s start off there in our weekly good, bad and ugly review from Week 3.
