The 49ers visit the Rams at Levi's South in Week 2 with the hope of going up 2-0 on the young 2023 season. Here's everything you need to know for the game.
All the San Francisco 49ers have to do to improve their record on the young 2023 season to a perfect 2-0 will be to continue their eight-game win streak over their NFC West rivals, the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
LA, entering the contest 1-0 after beating the Seattle Seahawks to open up the season, doesn't have much of a pound-for-pound chance against the Niners on paper. Especially with superstar wide receiver Cooper Kupp banged up and the offense boasting an offensive line that's very much a work in progress.
Placing that unit up against All-Pro edge Nick Bosa, and three-sacks-from-Week 1 edge Drake Jackson almost gives the entire edge San Francisco needs.
Still, all the football cliches apply here: The ball isn't round, and it is "any given Sunday."
