Los Angeles Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers

However, each team has some injury issues. However, things will be a bit more hard Thursday with safety Eric Reid (knee) sitting out Thursday's game.

Rams players are still adjusting to the 3-4, Phillips said. While head coach Kyle Shanahan doesn't have the weapons he has when he was running the Atlanta offense, there's no excuse for not finding the end zone in two games.

The San Francisco 49ers look for their first win of the season in primetime against the Rams. Last season, they ditched the red socks for black ones and called them Color Rush uniforms, which the team wore during a 33-21 loss to the visiting Arizona Cardinals on October 6.

Gurley, who has not rushed for 100 yards in a game since 2015, is looking ahead to Thursday night. He averaged 8.3 yards per carry on his way to a 124-yard game on the ground. Gurley's 88 yards last week were his most since his last 100-yard game on December 13, 2015, and Seahawks rookie Chris Carson found enough room to gain 93 yards on 20 carries against San Francisco last week. He enters the Thursday night game with no rushing scores. Like I said, we definitely need to get the passing game going too, though. "He came to compete (Sunday), and it showed". The Rams are -2.5 over the 49ers on Thursday Night. John McVay spent more than two decades in the front office in San Francisco and was a key part of the dynasty that brought five Super Bowl titles to the franchise.

Aaron Donald, who played last week after holdout, leads all DTs with 28 sacks and 58 TFLs since entering National Football League in 2014. On one play against the Redskins, Donald burst into the backfield and almost intercepted a ball that quarterback Kirk Cousins pitched to Thompson. He finished with just one tackle and an assist.

I don't have much to add here from my response on first down. "I keep trying to say, that's on me so I just have to play better". However, none of that led to a scoring drive and Hyde won't underestimate Los Angeles' 30th-ranked run defense. The team has put up a grand total of 12 points in its first two games this season. McVay's biggest influence so far may be on former Cal star quarterback Jared Goff, who has played impressively.

Carlos Hyde was able to break a couple of long runs in last week's loss at Seattle. Gerald Everett, the tight end leads the team with 134 receiving yards in 2 games.

"We're upset about that", he said, "but we're going to do something about it".

For your information, I think this will be a fascinating football game. And to be honest with you, I feel he should probably get a little bit more.

Crowd-pleasing or not, Hoyer insisted the passing game plan this week will be basic.

Todd Gurley scored two touchdowns in the win over the Redskins. San Francisco has struggled on early downs as well, which has caused them to get behind the sticks.
