Kyle Shanahan vs Sean McVay
Los Angeles kicked off the season with an impressive upset against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1. Despite being 4.5-point underdogs, the Rams turned the tables on Seattle, recovering from a 13-7 halftime deficit to secure a convincing 30-13 win. Even without star receiver Cooper Kupp, quarterback Matthew Stafford shone, completing 24 of 38 passes for an impressive 334 yards.
Stafford found reliable targets in Tutu Atwell and Puka Nacua, both racking up 119 receiving yards. Nacua’s 10 receptions were particularly notable, while Kyren Williams contributed with two rushing touchdowns on 15 carries for 52 yards. Cam Akers added another rushing touchdown, though he managed only 29 yards from 22 carries.
In Week 1, the San Francisco 49ers faced little difficulty against the Pittsburgh Steelers, cruising to a comfortable 30-7 victory. Second-year quarterback Brock Purdy showcased his skills, connecting with receiver Brandon Aiyuk for two touchdown passes in the first half. By halftime, the 49ers led 20-7, and they maintained control throughout the game. Christian McCaffrey’s explosive 65-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and a field goal from Jake Moody in the fourth sealed the deal.
Purdy completed 19 of 29 passes for 220 yards, with eight of those completions finding Aiyuk, who ended the day with an impressive 129 receiving yards. McCaffrey dominated on the ground, rushing 22 times for an outstanding 152 yards, and he also contributed in the passing game with three receptions for 17 yards.
NFL Latest Odds: SF -7.5 ; O/U 44
Despite both teams starting the season with a win, the San Francisco 49ers possess a considerably stronger defense compared to the Los Angeles Rams. While the Rams’ offense showed promise in their Week 1 victory, it’s worth noting that they were aided by Seattle losing both starting offensive tackles during the game. Any doubts about Brock Purdy’s ability to lead the 49ers’ offense were largely dispelled in their convincing win.
