St. Louis Rams
Back in the calendar year of 1984, a whopping 30 years ago now, the then-Los Angeles Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks played two memorable AFC playoff games. The first in January 1984 saw the Raiders beat the Seahawks, and the second in December 1984 saw the tables turned as Seattle knocked out the defending Super Bowl champions.
The 0-7 Oakland Raiders travel to Seattle this weekend to take on the defending Super Bowl champions. And while the 4-3 Seahawks have already lost as many games as they did all of last year, they still are an opponent never to be taken lightly on their home field. Of course, the winless Silver & Black can’t take any team lightly these days as they look to snap a 13-game losing streak dating back to last season.
The St. Louis Rams used two trick plays to beat the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks 28-26 Sunday. No one expected a Rams victory.
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.
After falling behind early, the 49ers responded and beat the St. Louis Rams. The offense, defense and special teams all got involved in this latest win.
The 49ers face the Rams in St. Louis Monday night, a game John Madden says San Francisco should win easily.
The 49ers will look to keep their winning streak alive when they go on the road this Sunday to take on the St. Louis Rams. San Francisco is the better team, but is playing a team that is familiar with them, and should give the 49ers all they can handle.
Including Sunday’s Week Five action, the San Diego Chargers are 4-1, the Denver Broncos are 3-1, and the Kansas City Chiefs are 2-3. Each team has a positive points differential, while the Oakland Raiders are 0-4 with a minus-52 differential. Yes, it’s going to be a long season for the Silver & Black.
Diehard fans may want to close their eyes: with an 0-2 start and staring at possible 0-6 start now, the Oakland Raiders will be hard-pressed to avoid two ugly fates in 2014: they could end up worse than the 4-12 record they posted last year, and they could end up as the worst team in the NFL.
With Sam Bradford out for the season, it’s time to look at who should become the new Rams quarterback this year.
