The Los Angeles Rams may have lost their last six of seven games to their closest opponent, the San Francisco 49ers, but they ended the 49ers’ winning streak in their last meeting: the NFC title game.
It turns out the Rams have one more streak to spare when they head to Santa Clara on Monday, October 3 a year ago for the much-anticipated rematch between the NFC’s top two.
But this is an individual mark of someone that has yet to be broken as of November 2020 and one that the Rams may pose a threat to. Now the Rams, who rallied 337 yards in the air in the 20-17 NFC Championship game win, have an opportunity to snap that streak owned by a $9 million defender at the other side.
Rams wideouts are now secondary loaded, with underrated cornerback on hot streak
Emmanuel Moseley of the 49ers not only failed to pass a touchdown pass to his side in all three meetings against the Rams last season, but the 49ers did $9,384,000 defenders who plays the CB2 role for SF, has not conceded a touchdown from his side in all of 2021, including the playoffs.
In fact, since former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams defeated then-No. 41 Moseley in the first quarter of their contest on Nov. 5, 2020, Moseley has had one of the most impressive streaks for any cornerback, let alone a defenseman: 22 Played consecutive games without giving up a touchdown from his side.
It also means that Moseley has gone 92 consecutive quarters of the game without seeing an opponent’s six-point wideout tack against him.
Now members of the media, including the Bay Area, have taken note of Moseley’s momentum.
Athletic’s 49ers insider David Lombardi added that Moseley is playing even more good coverage this season.
But now the Rams are the last to threaten the 49ers’ continued honors.
How this version of the Rams can end the Mark
Even at 2-1, the Rams offense hasn’t shown much of the fireworks that came early in the transition to Matthew Stafford.
The veteran quarterback and Rams sophomore has yet to throw for 300 yards in a single game this season. Longest Rams reception so far belongs to 2021 seventh-seeker Ben Skowronek – that was a 32-yarder.
And in three games, the 49ers have denied heaven — and given up the fewest yards with a total of 445. And guess who was added to the 49ers version of their no-fly zone? The former undrafted corner from the University of Tennessee Moseley.
But if last meeting against the Rams was any indication, the defending Super Bowl champions once again offer the best shot at thwarting Moseley’s chance to push the mark to 23 straight games.
Rams broke previous streak against Moseley
Per Pro Soccer Referencethe Rams had 107 receiving yards and caught seven passes to Moseley’s side in the conference title contest.
That ended the 5-foot-11, 190-pounder’s shot from 25 straight games in which he didn’t allow his side 100 yards (the last game before NFCCG was Nov. 1, 2020 against Seattle).
Guess who even narrowly missed breaking that mark? A wideout from the “Rams House”: Odell Beckham, who caught five passes for 87 yards against Moseley with a trip to the Super Bowl at stake.
Moseley may not have an OBJ to deal with this time. However, his paths are likely to cross with the towering and more physical Allen Robinson for the MNF match. Robinson was never assigned to Moseley for any goals last season when his Bears fell 33-22. Moseley might not even get Cooper Kupp for most of the night, as the 49ers’ CB1 Charvarius Ward was really brought up against explosive wideouts like the Super Bowl 56 Most Valuable Player. Lombardi adds that another 49er could get his share of encounters with Kupp:
With the 49ers having a fierce pass rush in tow (five defenders have a sack with Nick Bosa leading the pack with four), Sean McVay and the Rams were able to switch to a quick attacking approach.
But what you should also monitor: When a Rams team that broke Moseley’s game record without allowing the century mark can destroy another impressive series.
