The Rams travel north to take on the 49ers in an NFC West battle on “Monday Night Football”. If Los Angeles takes the win in the Week 10 game, it will be tied with the Cardinals atop the division at 8-2.
LA will be counting on quarterback Matthew Stafford, who just won a two-steal game in a Week 9 loss to the Titans. No. 1 wide receiver Cooper Kupp and new wide Odell Beckham Jr. will be his primary targets. Beckham will make his Rams debut after signing with the team on Thursday. Number 2 receiver Robert Woods is out for the season after suffering an ACL tear in practice on Friday. Kupp leads the NFL with 1,019 receiving yards and 10 receiving touchdowns.
Stafford, however, will face the NFL’s top-ranked pass defense. End Nick Bosa leads the 49ers with seven sacks and 12 tackles for a loss.

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 326 yards, a season-high, with two touchdowns and one interception, in the team’s 31-17 loss to the Cardinals last week. He connected with tight end George Kittle on six receptions for 109 yards and one touchdown, and he found wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk six times for 89 yards and one touchdown. Deebo Samuel leads the 49ers with 882 receiving yards.
The Rams have linebacker Von Miller available to put pressure on Garoppolo. Miller is also making his LA debut; he missed last week’s game with an ankle injury after being acquired from the Broncos on the NFL trade deadline on Nov. 2. Leonard Floyd leads the Rams sack with 7.5. All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald is next with six.
LA comes into the game as a 3-1 / 2-point road favorite, according to FanDuel.
