NFL Draft. Meanwhile, the Rams are playing for that coveted No. 2 seed. Given that the Chicago Bears-Minnesota Vikings game was rescheduled to the afternoon, the Rams will have no alternative but to put the starters on, in order to keep ahead of the Bears. The last time these two faced each other it was an ugly 39-10 drubbing at Levi’s Stadium. The 49ers’ offensive line allowed seven sacks and quarterback C.J. Beathard threw for 170 yards. The whole game.
This will be an afternoon game kicking off at 1:25 P.M. The game will air on FOX and you can see who gets it by looking at our broadcast map. Thom Brennaman, and Chris Spielman will be calling the game while Shannon Spake will be on the sidelines.
The 49ers are fresh off a loss to the Chicago Bears where Nick Mullens managed 241 yards passing—not awful against the Bears defense. The 49ers, however, failed at getting a single touchdown and an ill-advised fourth down throw sealed things for the 49ers. A loss here and a win from the Arizona Cardinals (who play the Seattle Seahawks) could net the 49ers the first pick, granted some strength of schedule tiebreakers are ironed out.
The Rams thumped the aforementioned Cardinals in Week 16. They have lost their bell-cow running back Todd Gurley for the Sunday’s game due to a knee injury suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles a few weeks ago. In for him is C.J. Anderson. The Rams will need to keep a win ahead of the Chicago Bears so they can lock down that coveted No. 2 seed. If the Bears beat the Minnesota Vikings and the Rams were to lose to the 49ers, the Bears would get the seed and the first round bye. There will be no backups to end this year’s season, folks.
For Week 17, the Rams will be without running back Todd Gurley (knee) and safety LaMarcus Joyner (ankle). Running back Justin Davis (shoulder), and Edge Ethan Westbrooks (illness) are questionable.
The 49ers meanwhile will be without running back Matt Breida (ankle), tight end Garrett Celek (concussion), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (calf), and wide receiver Dante Pettis (knee). Cornerback Tarvarius Moore (shoulder) is questionable.
