The outcome of Monday night’s game between the Rams and 49ers was in doubt until the 49ers defended Discuss content jumped Matthew Stafford go to cooper coup and returned 52 yards for a touchdown with just over six minutes left in the game.
Houfangi’s touchdown made it 24-9, and it was only fitting that the 49ers’ defense scored the final points on a night when they dominated the Rams’ offense. They fired Stafford seven times and had him fumble later in the fourth quarter to add some more icing to the cake, making sure they remained the tightest defense in the league.
Protective end Nick Boza folded with two sacks and five hits from the quarterback before making it clear that he thought defense was unmatched in the league.
“I think that it’s best in the league‘ Boza said via the team’s website. “This is our mindset every year, and this year we have the staff to make it happen. All three levels are just elite players.”
After four weeks of the season and Monday night work, it’s hard to think of a valid argument against Bosa’s view that the 49ers are the best in the league.
