Monday Night Football
The 49ers bounced back from a 14-point first quarter deficit to beat the Rams 31-17 in St. Louis Monday night. As the running game faltered, quarterback Colin Kaepernick brought the team back to life.
Colin Kaepernick threw for 343 yards and three touchdowns, helping the San Francisco 49ers erase an early 14-point deficit and beat the St. Louis Rams 31-17 on Monday night.
The ongoing protests over the death of Michael Brown made a quick appearance at the Edward Jones Dome during the second half of the St. Louis Rams’ game Monday night.
The 49ers face the Rams in St. Louis Monday night, a game John Madden says San Francisco should win easily.
“This is a big game for the 49ers,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew. San Francisco can clinch a playoff spot with a victory. “I think it’s important for them to play well, to keep up the momentum they got from last week. One of the things is I don’t think they can get over-enthusiastic about this last game at Candlestick…”
Although the 49ers play their last regular season home game on Monday, the stadium will still host a number of events before it is demolished.
There will be no high-profile, prime time weeknight football games – neither Monday nor Thursday night – played at the new Levi’s Stadium for the 49ers inaugural season and possibly beyond.
Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers (6-4) will hope to find their way Monday night against the Washington Redskins (3-7), in an ESPN production airing on KPIX 5.
John Madden said officials should not have picked up the pass interference flag at the end of the Panthers-Patriots game Monday night, giving Carolina a 24-20 victory.
Wallace replaced Rodgers after he suffered a shoulder injury in the first quarter. The Bears beat the Packers 27-20, and Madden expects the Packers to continue to struggle without Rodgers, who could be out several weeks.
