The Catch

This catch was the toughest for Talanoa Hufanga. He jumped as soon as he hit his hands, almost pitting towards the ground.
But the 49ers' safety was calm as the ball was in their grasp. And once he got a solid hold on it, everything else became relatively easy.Hufanga's pick six was the standout moment of a lively night at Levi's Stadium. The Defensive Corps of the DeMeco Ryans closed out Stafford & Co, giving up just nine points on the way to a comfortable victory over "Monday Night Football".
It was a clash between the two best defenses in football. And neither unit disappointed early, giving combined just 10 points in the first quarter.

For all Los Angeles' talent, however, it didn't stop the big game. Whether it was Jeff Wilson Jr. or Deebo Samuel, it seemed that whenever the Niners needed an enormous amount of yardage, they got it.

San Francisco, on the other hand, proved strong. Cooper Kupp gets his touch, as did Tyler Higby. But overall, Stafford and Rams were ineffective, failing to find the end zone showing a genuine inability to keep the ball on the ground.

Much of this was due to the defensive line of San Fran. With seven sacks, about a dozen tackles for loss and countless QB rushes, it was a rough night for all the white and gold men. Niners fans didn't mind too much.

(All times Eastern)

End of fourth quarter - 49ers 24, Rams 9
10:52 p.m.: FUMBLE! Ebukam gets his hands to Stafford once again, jarring the ball loose. The fumble ends up in the Niners' hands, effectively putting this one on ice.

10:49 p.m.: Stafford nearly throws another dime into the 49ers grasp. However, the ball slipped through Fred Warner's hands.

10:48 p.m.: The Rams keep themselves alive with a 13 yard gain from Kupp on fourth down. 2:02 left for them to rally.

10:44 p.m.: SACK! Hassan Ridgeway takes Stafford down behind the line of scrimmage. That's the Niners fifth sack of the night. They are tearing L.A.'s offensive line to shreds.

10:37 p.m.: PICK SIX! Talanoa Hufanga breaks up Stafford's screen pass to Kupp, taking it 52 yards to the house. That might be the death knell for Los Angeles, which just hasn't been up to the races today.

49ers 24, Rams 9

10:35 p.m.: Higbee with another big catch past the first down marker. He and Kupp have pretty much provided the whole of the Rams offense tonight — they’ve combined for 150 of Stafford’s 176 passing yards.

10:32 p.m.: Huge miss from Gould on a 42 yard field goal attempt. He pulled it wide. Los Angeles is still in this. The Rams have a little over eight minutes to mount a comeback.

10:29 p.m.: Deebo with another huge play! 29 yards on the screen. Samuel has six catches for 115 yards and a touchdown today. One of the league’s most exciting players putting on a real show tonight.

10:23 p.m.: The Rams’ offense is finding it difficult to do much of anything tonight. That’s another three-and-out for the Niners’ defense, which has held tight all day.

Oh, and McCloud sliced through Los Angeles’ punt team for a 22 yard gain. It goes from bad to worse for the Rams, who desperately need a stop to stay within striking distance.

10:17 p.m.: FIELD GOAL! Shanahan takes the conservative approach, putting his faith in San Fran’s defense to shut the door. Robbie Gould steps up and hits a chip shot field goal, extending the Niners’ lead to eight.

10:15 p.m.: Sooooo close from George Kittle. Garoppolo throws a dart into the Pro Bowl TE, who snags it beautifully. However, on further examination, Kittle couldn’t get his second foot down in time. It will be fourth down. Kyle Shanahan has a decision to make.

End of third quarter – 49ers 14, Rams 9

10:11 p.m.: …Not if Bobby Wagner has anything to say about it, though. The six-time All Pro linebacker stops Deebo and Wilson on back-to-back plays, holding them up as they looked to get another tuddy. That will end the third quarter. Rams desperately need a goal-line stand here.

10:10 p.m.: Juz with another impressive play, taking a handoff misdirection and juking outside the tackles for the first. The 49ers might be on the brink of another TD…

10:07 p.m.: The first play of the drive is a big one! Kyle Juszczyk fields a catch on the right sideline and trudges 35 yards down the field as cheers of “JUUUUUZ” swirl around Levi’s Stadium. Got to love it.

10:06 p.m.: FUMBLE! Jordan Fuller knocks the ball out of Ray-Ray McCloud’s grasp on the kick return. However, it falls into the path of a 49ers player. Phew.

10:03 p.m.: FIELD GOAL! Stafford should have been picked off after missing an open Higbee on the slant. He got fortunate that the ball dropped to the turf, but it represents another missed opportunity for Los Angeles, who has to settle for a Gay chip shot.

49ers 14, Rams 9

10:01 p.m.: Charvarius Ward with a huge deflection, denying Allen Robinson an easy touchdown grab. San Francisco is stepping it up when its backs are against the wall.
