Big NFL surprise!
The Los Angeles Rams, one of the top favorites at the Super Bowl, got a complete surprise in San Francisco. 10:31! The second bankruptcy in a row.
The 49ers hadn’t won anything at home this season.
One is particularly in the spotlight at the “West Coast Battle” in the “Monday Night” game: Odell Beckham Jr. (29). The superstar newcomer from the Cleveland Browns had just three days to train with his new teammates.
The first action in the game belongs to OBJ!
In the very first attack, quarterback Matthew Stafford fits him. Five yards of space gained!
Then that! This time OBJ hisses along the left flank, long pass from Stafford – but further into the middle! Interception! Bitter for the Rams …
Unclear whether Beckham went wrong or the pass was just bad. Shortly afterwards you can see the two of them sitting next to each other on the sidelines and gesticulating to discuss the scene.
Then it’s the turn of the 49ers! Playmaker Jimmy “Jimmy G” Garoppolo on George Kittle – Touchdown! With an extra point it’s 7: 0.
Then another interception: Stafford on Tyler Higbee – the egg slips through his arms. Jimmie Ward grabs and runs to the touchdown.
Higbee makes up for his mistake. With his touchdown, the guests can shorten.
Another touchdown for the 49ers: Deebo Samuel runs into the end zone. The extra point also fits. 21: 7.
Towards the end of the third quarter, the hosts put a field goal on top. 24: 7.
And OBJ? Of course, that still lacks the connection to the game. Nevertheless, it is used more often, up to this point has 18 yards in the account, is also used, for example, to distract star receiver Cooper Kupp. But nothing more!
Conclusion: His debut is completely in the pants!
The Rams just don’t get anything baked. Instead, the 49ers score again: Samuel again, touchdown again! The 31: 7 is already a preliminary decision.
The Rams shortened to 10:31 with a field goal. Doesn’t change anything about the fat surprise defeat.
