Watch mic'd-up Matt Breida pump up 49ers' defense in big win over Rams

49ers running back Matt Breida was the latest player to get mic'd up on gameday, but it was clear he was a man of few words during Sunday's 20-7 win over the Rams. But the words he did say, he made them count.

In the beginning, you could hear the simple "Let's go," chants from Breida as he cheered on his teammates during Sunday's big win in Los Angeles.

But, as the game went on and he began to have a sense of sympathy -- just kidding -- towards the Rams, he got more vocal.

"I would hate to be on that team, knowing there's nothing you can do," Breida said.

Going up against the 49ers defense is a task many of us should be thankful we don't have to partake in.

49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead helped the 49ers take an early lead in the second half when he recovered a key fumble, a play that helped him earn Pro Football Focus' Team of the Week honors.

"There are too many of them," Breida said referring to the 49ers' fierce defensive line. "They're too good. We've got all first-round draft picks on the D-line."

That's not a bad weapon to have on your team. 

Plus, it's always nice to watch with Greg Papa's classic touchdown call. That's something 49ers fans will never get sick of listening to.

Ravens' John Harbaugh reacts to 49ers' Tim Ryan's Lamar Jackson remarks

49ers broadcaster Tim Ryan was suspended for one game after comments made about Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson following Sunday’s loss.

“He’s really good at that fake, Lamar Jackson, but when you consider his dark skin color with the dark football with a dark uniform, you could not see the thing,” Ryan said on the show (H/T The San Francisco Chronicle).

The comments created a social media firestorm, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh isn’t interested in furthering the controversy.

“I don’t really know too much about it or understand the context of it. It’s not relevant to what we’re trying to accomplish right now,” Harbaugh said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.

49ers injury report: Marcell Harris to start in place of Jaquiski Tartt

BRADENTON, Fla. – Marcell Harris on Sunday will be back where he ended his rookie season with the 49ers.

Harris will take over as the 49ers’ starter at strong safety with Jaquiski Tartt out for at least one game after sustaining cracked ribs in the team’s 20-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

Tartt and backup defensive tackle Jullian Taylor (elbow) have been ruled out for the 49ers’ game Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Two of the 49ers’ seldom-used wide receivers, Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis, are listed as questionable, along with left tackle Joe Staley. Goodwin has knee and foot issues, according to the team, while Pettis has already missed one game with a knee injury.

Staley has missed three games after surgery to repair a fractured and dislocated finger. He is expected to play Sunday.

All other 49ers players, including Dee Ford and Richard Sherman, will be available for Sunday’s game.

Harris started the final five games of his rookie season after being a sixth-round draft pick from Florida in 2018. He did not earn a spot on the team’s 53-man roster at the beginning of this season. Harris was promoted from the practice squad in October and has appeared in nine games this season.

“I’m real happy for Marcell,” coach Kyle Shanahan said on "49ers Game Plan," which airs Saturday at 7 p.m. on NBC Bay Area (Ch. 3). “He’s gone come a long way, in that he was a very good college player, tore his Achilles his senior year, which really hurt him. That’s why we were able to get him in the draft. It affected him his whole rookie year.

"He’s been able to string together about eight months where he has been healthy, and when you’re made of the right stuff, you have the talent and you can stay healthy, you usually just need the time.”

Harris took over for Tartt on Sunday and made one of the top plays in the game when he took the ball away from Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson on a running play to create a turnover.
