Jared Goff is the real deal in Rams Thursday night win

Jared Goff is the real deal in Rams Thursday night win

"If we could have just come out like that, it could have been a different outcome for us". After giving the 49ers the first touchdown of their season, The Rams drove down the field and scored again on a Todd Gurley reception. Gurley posted 113 rushing yards, 36 receiving yards and three touchdowns, Goff threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns, and Watkins hauled in two touchdowns and 106 receiving yards.

In total, Gurley has 241 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns.

INJURIES: Rams S Lamarcus Joyner left the game in the first half with a hamstring injury. And the 49ers' failed final drive was a poor finish. McVay, if you didn't know, doesn't watch the defense when they're on the field. For a player of his caliber, this was just too low, but the Rams management had a clear strategy, and they were confident that they made a right choice. The 49ers, forced to go for an onside kick, recovered and were given one last chance to win the game.

The period started with the 49ers deep in Rams territory, and when they got to the visitors' 12, it was Hoyer who dumped a short pass to rookie Trent Taylor, who eluded two Rams and ran the ball to the 1. LA took over and survived the win.

The 49ers are missing all of these bodies just as they try to correct the pass rush and secondary woes they had Thursday against the Rams. What's more, Joe Fann of the 49ers' official website noted Hyde suffered an early hip injury, although he returned and almost spearheaded the comeback in the second half. The effort was the best we've seen but it wasn't enough to end their losing streak.

Hoyer did his part as well - after shaking off an interception on the first play from scrimmage.

Gurley scored his second touchdown of the quarter and of the game when he caught a pass from Jared Goff and scurried seven yards to the endzone to put the Rams up 14-7. The reason Gurley was the No. 10 pick in the draft, despite his ACL tear five months before, was that some teams viewed him as the best running back to enter the National Football League since Adrian Peterson.

Jared Goff has obviously found a connection with the newly acquired Sammy Watkins. "We're not exactly sure how long it's going to be". "Making a good guess". "I care about how guys are responding to it and I want these guys to come back Monday ready to go and ready to fight to get our first win". Hoyer ripped off a bomb of a throw to Pierre Garcon, who drug his toes to get San Francisco to the five yard line.

The penalty set back the 49ers 10 yards. But a personal foul on Jimmie Ward with a helmet to helmet hit on Woods, for unnecessary roughness moved them to the goal line.

However, the Rams lost to the Washington Redskins, despite two touchdowns from Gurley.

San Francisco can take solace in knowing it scored its first touchdown of the season and battled back, but it dropped to 0-3. He rushed 25 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns. Injuries were another factor, safety Jaquiski Tartt left the game with a concussion.

"We gave up a lot of points, and we shouldn't have let them get that close", defensive lineman Aaron Donald said, "but the best thing about this game is, you go week to week and you fix things". We've got the weapons out there to make plays - to make big plays and we get ourselves back in the game.
