San Francisco 49ers vs St Louis Rams is the big NFC West match up in Week 13 of the NFL season today. The 49ers will be looking to maintain their push for the divisional title and at the same time stake their claim to be the best team in the NFL right now. Meanwhile the Rams are simply trying to claim a win to keep their season alive. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (link provided below).
This is a rematch of one of the stranger matches in the NFL just last month. That Nov. 11 fixture saw the two teams play out a 24-24 tie and saw both teams leave the field in confusion at the end of the game.
This game will hopefully trigger a result this time around as the 49ers look to put one hand on the NFC West divisional title. They are currently clear at the top with an 8-2-1 record. The Seattle Seahawks are trying to push San Francisco all the way and come into Week 13 with a 6-5 record. However, most pundits do not give the Seahawks much chance of catching the 49ers, and if San Francisco can gain the win today they will be cruising towards another divisional title.
The Rams are in third in the division, and will be hoping a big win today, against a team many consider the best team in the NFL, will trigger a run of wins through to the end of the season. If they can manage to win out St Louis would be in with a chance of making the playoffs, although a loss today would all but end any such hopes.
In the last encounter between these two sides Alex Smith was the quarterback for the 49ers. However, today the Rams will have to cope with Colin Kaepernick, who is a very different style of quarterback. Since coming into the side Kaepernick has been impressive, completing 48 throws from 74 attempts for 680 yards and three touchdowns.
