Thursday Night Football Thread: Rooting for a tie

That’d be best-case for the 49ers in the long run

The second and third best teams in the NFC West face each other tonight, as the Los Angeles Rams are on the road against the Seattle Seahawks. Both teams are 3-1 heading into Thursday nights game. I know it’s easy to say this on a 49ers site, but I don’t think either team is as good as their record. We probably won’t find that out for a few more weeks, but it’ll show.

As long as Seattle continues to limit the amount of times Russell Wilson throws the ball, they’ll limit themselves on offense. I laugh every time the Seahawks run the ball on 2nd & long. The Rams offense is the opposite. Jared Goff hasn’t been consistent, but they’ve been tough to stop on the ground.

Defensively, both teams are “fine,” at best. Each team has a difference maker on the defensive line that can and will bail their respective units out. A loss would be great, but a tie may be even better for the 49ers down the line. So that’s what I’m rooting for.
