Preview: 49ers vs. Rams

Posted: Updated:

After watching the 49ers destroy the Packers through the air in week one, the natural thought process was they changed it up because Green Bay had all summer to work on defending the read option. Two weeks later and Jim Harbaugh hasn't gone back to what got him to the Super Bowl last February.

Colin Kaepernick failed to produce last week at home against the Colts and this week he faces a beatable St. Louis pass defense that has given up 300+ yard games in two of three and multiple touchdowns in all three games. Kaepernick won't likely touch 300, but 280 and two scores are likely.

Frank Gore is not happy and want's the damn ball. He hasn't gone over 100 yards rushing since week seven last year, so it is tough to project he will this week but a rushing score is a good possibility along with his 87 yards.

Anquan Boldin will lead the way in the receiving game. Six grabs for 94 yards and a score sounds right.

Vernon Davis missed the game last week and is questionable for Sunday. If he does play, he'll gimp in with around 50 yards.

Sam Bradford had a great two weeks to start the season then laid an egg against Dallas last week. He faces a 49ers secondary that just held Andrew Luck to 159 yards and no touchdowns.

The running game is a question as well with Daryl Richardson banged up and Isaiah Pead ineffective. Despite allowing 139 and 155 yards on the ground the past two games, I question if the Rams have the horses to pull off those numbers.

Chris Givens is the top receiver in St. Louis as Tavon Austin learns the ropes. Keep your expectations in check as Givens will collect about 85 yards and Austin 55. Tight End Jared Cook will haul in the touchdown pass.
