Maiocco's Top Three Rams-49ers Matchups
49ers go for sweep of Rams
The Rams and 49ers complete their season-series on Sunday. They met in St. Louis on Monday, Oct. 13, a 31-17 49ers' win. Kickoff at Levi's Stadium is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. PST on Sunday
Matchup No. 3: Austin Davis vs. Eric Reid
Reid should have an opportunity to make some plays because Davis will take some shots down the field. After facing Davis once, Reid and the 49ers defense has a better idea what to expect this time around after finding a formula that worked on Oct. 13 against the Rams.
Matchup No. 3: Greg Robinson vs. Ahmad Brooks
In 18 snaps after taking over at left tackle last week against the Kansas City Chiefs, Robinson allowed three pressures (one sack, one hit and one hurry). He was also called for holding. While Robinson is a promising young talent, Brooks’ experience should give him an edge in these head-to-head matchups on passing downs.
Matchup No. 1: Aaron Donald vs. Marcus Martin
Donald has outstanding quickness with the ability to penetrate and get into the backfield in the run game. Martin is going to have to be spot-on with all of his assignments and play fast in order to neutralize the combination of agility and strength that Donald possesses.
