Why 49ers win vs. Rams is a microcosm of Niners 2021 season
49ers peaking at the right time
In this day in age, teams are not built with a blue-collar mentality like these 49ers.
Most teams, like the Rams, like an air-raid offense that has the ability to put up 40 points, and a defensive mentality that forces turnovers to get off the field as soon as possible to give the offense another chance to score.
Toughness travels well, and the red and gold are a dangerous opponent heading into the playoffs.
Once the Niners stayed true to who they were, the wins started piling up, just like the points did in this matchup.
That attitude will serve them well as they travel the playoff road seeing where they fit into this NFC tournament.
If the saying, “only the strong survive” is true, the journey this San Francisco team has taken might take it right where the 49ers wanted to go all along.
