SANTA CLARA — Rams running back Todd Gurley scored three touchdowns and Jared Goff threw two TD passes as the Los Angeles Rams took advantage of four take-aways and a blocked punt to beat the San Francisco 49ers 39-10 last October 20.
The Rams dominated defensively with Aaron Donald recorded four sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Linebacker Cory Littleton had two sacks and a blocked punt for safety. The turn-overs set up 24 points for the Rams who scored big despite gaining a season-low 331 yards of offense.
Gurley scored on a 7-yard run in the second quarter after a fumble by Matt Breida and 1-yard run after a Johnson interception in the third. He capped his fifth three-touchdown game of the past two seasons with a 12-yard catch after JoJo Natson’s 36-yard punt return.
Beathard had 170 yards on 15-of-27 passing with one touchdown to go and two interception, while Rams quarterback Jared Goff went for 18-of-24 for 202 yards with two touchdowns and zero interception.
