Week-by-week fan prediction poll: week 13 vs. Rams

While I expect the Rams to be competitive in the NFC West next year, I don't see the blazing arc of victory some people are looking for.

Last year's home game against the Rams gave Colin Kaepernick his first chance to handle meaningful QB responsibilities when he took over in the second half and led the Niners on a 17-point comeback.

Ultimately, the game ended in a tie.

But I always wondered, how would it have gone if Kap had held the reins from the start? I'm not just speaking in terms of his ability as a quarterback, but also in terms of the uncertainty the team must have felt losing their starting QB in the middle of a game against a talented division rival.

I suppose we'll get a chance with this game to find out the answer to that question. Obviously, both teams have experienced changes. But I'm excited to see how it goes now that Kap is the starter, the Niners have corrected for play-tipping habits and both teams have tinkered with their rosters.

Here is a preview piece by WesHanson.

And here are some stats from the Rams last season:

Offense:

Passing: 221.9 yds/game, 6.4 yds/att
Passing leader: Sam Bradford, 3,702 yds
Receiving leader: Chris Givens, 698 yds
Rushing: 107.1 yds/game, 4.2 yds/att
Rushing leader: Steven Jackson, 1,042 yds

Defense:

Passing allowed: 225.1 yds/game, 6.6 yds/att
Rushing allowed: 117.5 yds/game, 4.3 yds/att
Points allowed: 21.8
Sacks: 52
