As the season has reached the halfway point, it has become clear the NFC West is a two-team race.
The Cardinals are the early leaders, out to an 8-1 advantage coming into Week 10, while the Rams are just a game back at 7-2.
The Rams have had one of the game’s most overpowering offenses, as they lead the league with 3,594 total yards and are tied for second with 6.3 yards per play entering Week 10. They also sit at fifth with 29 points per game. And while Los Angeles lost last week to the Titans, it gets a chance to bounce back on Monday. And now, they have added another talented wide receiver to their mix with the signing of Odell Beckham Jr.
The Rams will travel to Santa Clara, Calif., aiming to get back in the win column against the 49ers. San Francisco, too, is coming off a loss, having fallen to the Cardinals 31-17 in Week 9. Since starting the season 2-0, the 49ers have lost five of six games.
Part of the issue has come from the lackluster play at quarterback. Jimmy Garappolo has just eight touchdown passes to five interceptions in seven games. He’s completed 65.3 percent of his passes for 1,754 yards.
Compare that to his counterpart, Matthew Stafford, who has flourished after the move out of Detroit. He leads the league with 2,771 passing yards and is second in the NFL with 23 passing touchdowns and six interceptions.
