The 49ers' offensive line did a good job protecting Garoppolo, giving him time to look downfield, and keeping the Rams' defensive linemen and Aaron Donald from getting to him.

During the third quarter, the Rams' Samuel Sloman kicked a 42-yard field goal that made the score 21-9. The 49ers responded in the fourth quarter with a 49-yard field goal from Robbie Gould to give them a 24-9 lead.

The Rams would score one more time when Josh Reynolds caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from Goff that made the final score 24-16.

Kittle caught seven passes for 109-yards and one touchdown to lead the 49ers in receiving, and the Rams Henderson Jr. carried the ball 18 times for 88-yards.

The Rams' next game will be at So-Fi Stadium hosting the (5-1) Chicago Bears, and the 49ers will travel to take on the (2-3) New England Patriots. #nfl #rams #49ers #jaredgoff #darellhendersonjr. #nfcwest #losangelesrams #sanfrancisco49ers #football #tgsportstv1
