But not usually.

1-0. 49ers Rams opening. 1-0. 4:05 p.m. ET. 49ers -8. 42. Fox. Sunday, Sept. 17. 51

For fans who can't tune into a television broadcast or aren't able to stream Week 2's game between the 49ers and Rams, the radio remains a classic option.

It's kind of weird to admit that a Week 2 game is going to decide who's in the lead within the NFC West, but that's where we are.

Alright, the division isn't going to come down to who wins this Sunday between the San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams at SoFI Stadium in Inglewood, California. But, there's always the potential that the outcome of this game carries a lot of weight by the time Week 18 rolls around and it's time to tally up division wins and losses.

Ever since the Rams moved into SoFI Stadium, Niners fans have taken it over when the two teams have played, essentially turning LA's home venue into "Levi's South."

That'll probably be the case again this Sunday when the two rivals square off on Sept. 17 at 4:05 p.m.

But, for those fans who cannot attend in person and aren't able to either televise or stream the game, there's always the old radio to provide some relief.

Here's how fans can listen to Sunday's NFC West contest on the radio.

How to listen to the 49ers broadcast vs. Rams in Week 2

With the San Francisco Giants taking on the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, the 49ers' flagship radio station, KNBR 680 AM, won't be the primary spot to tune into the Niners game in the greater Bay Area.

Instead, KGO 810 AM and 107.7 The Bone FM will broadcast San Francisco's trip to Los Angeles, while KHTK 1140 AM in Sacramento will cover that market.

How Rams fans (or Southern California 49ers fans) can listen to Week 2 on the radio

There are plenty of San Francisco fans living in Southern California, of course, meaning many will elect to tune into Los Angeles' broadcast of the game, which will be made available on ESPNLA 710 AM and KWKW 1330 AM.

J.B. Long and Maurice Jones-Drew will be on the call.

Additionally, Rams fans who are in market can visit to live stream the game.

Fans who are outside of either market in Northern or Southern California can tune in by accessing the Westwood One radio network or by checking out NFL+, which offers radio broadcasts for every live regular-season game this season as part of the subscription package. Additionally, SiriusXM radio will carry the broadcast from both teams' announcers.

The 49ers and Rams kick off on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 4:05 p.m. ET from SoFI Stadium.
