The more losses to NFC West teams, the better for the 49ers. It will take a big-time comeback from the Los Angeles Rams to avoid a loss Sunday to the Miami Dolphins, all thanks to Jared Goff's forgettable first half.
The Cal product and former No. 1 overall draft pick was intercepted twice and lost two fumbles in the first half on Sunday. One of his interceptions was returned for a Dolphins touchdown, and so was one of Goff's fumbles. NFL Twitter certainly didn't hold back on the Rams quarterback, too.
The Rams entered Sunday 5-2 and tied for second place in the NFC West ahead of the 4-3 49ers. San Francisco beat LA, 24-16, on Oct. 18 when Goff passed for just 198 yards and was intercepted once. The Rams' other loss this season was to the Buffalo Bills.
With the NFC West being highly competitive, the 49ers will take as much help as they can get in the standings, and that includes Goff giving away the first half to the Dolphins.
