Breaking down the big numbers behind the Rams’ 24-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night.

42

Yards passing for the Rams in the first half. Meanwhile, Jimmy Garoppolo became the first 49ers quarterback with 200-plus yards passing and three or more touchdowns in a first half since Jeff Garcia in 2003. Garoppolo had 215 yards in the half.

0

Times Garoppolo has lost two games in a row as a starting quarterback. He is 7-1 in prime-time games. Jared Goff is 8-6 in prime-time games since 2017, and has lost three of those in a row on the road.

109

Yards receiving for 49ers tight end George Kittle on seven catches. Coming into the game, he had averaged 89.5 yards per game against the Rams, a franchise best.

7

Consecutive road games Goff has thrown at least two touchdown passes. He also had a pass intercepted in the end zone by the 49ers, however, and completed 19 of 38 passes for 198 yards.

The Rams won four games against the feeble NFC East, but a loss at San Francisco reminds them that the NFC West is going to be a difficult division to tackle.
