Carlos Hyde leaves game with hip injury

Carlos Hyde leaves game with hip injury

It was a wild ride and a whole lot of fun.

San Francisco did indeed score on another goaline run by Hyde, but were unable to tie the game as the two-point conversion was intercepted by defensive lineman Michael Brokers. "As long as we execute and take care of the ball - good things will happen".

Check out some of the reactions to the unexpectedly wild Thursday Night Football game below. Los Angeles has put past year in the rearview mirror, firing on all cylinders Thursday night. Instead of pounding it to Hyde again, Shanahan called a play-action pass and Hoyer hit tight end Garrett Celek for a touchdown, cutting LA's lead to 34-26. That will be a tough task for the Rams, but they have extra time to prepare for the Week 4 road contest. Despite the disappointing final outcome, Hoyer's performance represented a significant step forward after he'd thrown for a combined 292 yards and no touchdowns through his first two games.

Both teams put on a scoring clinic, but the Rams never let the game out of their grasp, leading at halftime by a healthy 11-point margin with the help of three touchdowns from running back Todd Gurley. He played a fantastic game with three touchdowns and 149 scrimmage yards, and ran with a full objective in this one.

The San Francisco 49ers flipped the script a bit in Week 3 on Thursday Night Football as they took on the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.

Back then, the Rams had a terrifying offense which terrorized all the defenses in the league.

Goff's progression and Watkins being healthy have given the Rams reason for optimism, and a 2-1 start to the 2017 season. The Niners have had the recent edge, but the Rams have the more talented defense. Right before the half ended Goff found Woods for a 13-yard pass and that put LA in the red zone. But by no means did we play flawless and I don't think we played as good as we can. There was a fumbled kickoff that led to another score. At that point, the 49ers only had one shot at winning, and it involved recovering an onside kick, which is exactly what they did.

Fortunately, the defense stepped up and held the 49ers off to allow the Rams to escape with the win.

The game began in stunning fashion with the Rams forcing 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer into a turnover. McVay, the Rams' new coach, has improved his team's offense tremendously. Looking at the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers entering the matchup, it appeared the strength of both teams was on defense with questions still on offense. But the defense is still lagging behind and nearly stunningly has been gashed by a previously struggling opponent for the second straight game. I thought Jared managed the game extremely well, distributed to his playmakers, gave guys a chance down the field - you look at Sammy and Robert coming away with over 100 apiece.

There's no great secret behind the creation of this suddenly functional offense, the Rams simply got better personnel in the areas where it was most needed.
