The Rams have a small health advantage as they head to the Bay area. The 49ers will play Jimmy G but be without key left tackle Trent Williams and several defensive players. The Rams have a couple of groin strains at CBs and are coming out of some offensive line issues.

This should make for a competitive NFC West matchup to end Week 4. Keep the winning ways going.
