Good morning folks. Today, the San Francisco 49ers take on the St. Louis Rams in the second meeting between the two. To be honest, I'm feeling very good about this game after the first one. I was a little nervous heading into that one, but it ended up being over nothing as the 49ers took a relatively easy victory. They won't always be that easy though, especially when were talking about divisional rivals.
The Rams are a team that's been built to do one thing, and one thing only: beat the 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks in head-to-head matchups. Everything about that team is there to try and stop the kind of team that San Francisco and Seattle field each week. Fortunately, I don't think the Rams are going to be successful in their goal.
We'll take that nice upset over the Seahawks though. Do more of that, Rams. Onto your links for the day, and of course, go Niners.
