With an upcoming NFC West bout against the LA Rams, these five SF 49ers players are ones to watch out for most on Sunday night.
The SF 49ers begin their toughest stretch of the season with a Sunday Night Football matchup at Levi’s Stadium with long-time division rivals the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6.
The Rams are off to a good start, having only lost a single game to the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills, in what was a good game on both sides of the ball for each team. They currently sit a game behind the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West.
The SF 49ers, on the other hand, are coming off a bit of a skid in their season. After a very successful, if not costly, road trip to MetLife Stadium for two blowout victories, the Niners have returned home to play a couple of stinkers against the Philadelphia Eagles and the Miami Dolphins, with the latter marking a new low in the season, a game Niners were never really in.
Despite the Niners limping into this game with a league-high 13 players on injured reserve and numerous other players ailing from nagging or shorter-term injuries, the team still has a chance to right the ship and make noise in the playoffs, even if a second-straight division title seems highly unlikely.
If that’s to be the case, the recentering will have to begin on national television in front of the entire country with a massively in-form Rams team looking to enact a little revenge on an SF 49ers team that beat them twice in 2019.
The good news is that Sunday night will mark the return of those excellent all-white 49ers throwback jerseys from last season, too.
Just another reason not to take your eyes off these five SF 49ers players.
