The 49ers received the opening kickoff of Thursday’s divisional matchup against the 49ers, but it didn’t take long for the game to take a turn for the worst.
Quarterback Brian Hoyer targeted Marquise Goodwin on the team’s first offensive play from scrimmage, and it didn’t really go well. Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman jumped the route, picked off the pass and nearly scored.
Robey-Coleman was later tackled from behind at the 3-yard line, and Todd Gurley scored on the play that followed, giving the Rams a 7-0 lead.
That’s not a great start for the Niners’ “Color Rush” uniforms, which were on full display.
