The last time Los Angeles beat San Francisco was in the final week of the 2018 regular season, the year the Rams reached Super Bowl LIII.
Since Kyle Shanahan turned the 49ers into NFC contenders, Sean McVay and the Rams just haven’t been able to beat them. If the Rams fall to the 49ers on Sunday, McVay will be the first coach to lose seven straight times to a single opponent since Marvin Lewis lost eight games in a row to Mike Tomlin. Even though the Rams are home, Los Angeles appears to be the underdog since it hasn’t been able to beat the 49ers.
History does favor the 49ers when looking at the big picture of the third matchup, yet the task will be difficult on the road. The 49ers are familiar with SoFi Stadium and are expected to have a contingent of fans entering opposing territory, which should also help them attempt beat the Rams for the seventh straight time.
