Analysis: Rams vs. 49ers – the tactical panel
The Rams were defensively played mainly with two deep safetys, whereby Eric Weddle occasionally advanced into the box when it came to obvious run plays. The Rams also played most soft zones. If it came to Man Coverage, Garoppolo sought consistent matchup advantages such as Aiyuk against Williams.
The Niners responded to them – a few too many – runs in Early Downs, as well as numerous screens and short crossing routes.
The niners were always trying to put the ball in the hands of Samuel. Accordingly, he saw Snaps in the Backfield for Run Plays as well as some quick screens – one of them led to his spectacular touchdown in the first half.
The Niners, in turn, mostly set defensively on single-high-concepts and tried to defend Cooper’s dam with Safety help, which did not always work – see his touchdown in the first half. However, the niners also renounced excessively many flashes and pressure generated mainly via their bear-strong 4-men-rush.
