Around The NFC West - Week 7

Posted Oct 24, 2017

The Rams and Seahawks grab victories, while the 49ers remain winless

Seattle's Sheldon Richardson hits Giants quarterback Eli Manning on Sunday.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

Last time out: Cowboys 40, 49ers 10

Record: 0-7 overall, 0-3 in division

Snapshot: The 49ers’ string of losing close games ended in this one as Dallas dominated from start to finish. Cowboys running back Zeke Elliott had 26 carries for 147 yards and two touchdowns while adding a 72-yard touchdown reception. Dallas rolled up 501 yards of total offense and scored 40 of the game’s first 43 points.

Notable: 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard was 22-of-38 for 238 yards without a touchdown or interception in his first career start. The rookie was sacked five times and lost a pair of fumbles.

Quotable: “Your first start against anybody in the National Football League is going to be pretty nerve-wracking, especially for a quarterback who, in this league, is a position that is held in very high regard. I’m sure there are things that C.J. will look at and want to correct and get better at. That’s the same for everybody.” – center Daniel Kilgore on Beathard, via 49ers.com

Injury Update: Rookie linebacker Reuben Foster left the game with a rib injury but isn’t expected to miss any time. Right tackle Trent Brown left with a concussion.

Next up: The 49ers travel to face the Eagles in Week 8.

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

Last time out: Seahawks 24, Giants 7

Record: 4-2 overall, 2-0 in division

Snapshot: Seattle outplayed New York the whole way but trailed 7-3 in the third quarter. Doug Baldwin caught a 22-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter to give the Seahawks the lead and Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham added scoring receptions in the fourth quarter to help Seattle cruise to the finish line.

Notable: The Seahawks defense allowed only 177 total yards. Giants quarterback Eli Manning was 19-of-39 for 134 yards and a touchdown, while Seahawks signal-caller Russell Wilson was 27-of-39 for 334 yards and three touchdowns. Baldwin shoved offensive line coach Tom Cable during a heated exchange on the sideline during the game.

Quotable: “I lost my cool. It’s 100 percent my fault. At that moment, I was really frustrated with the offense as a whole. Not the coaching staff; the players. We had the play calls, we just didn’t execute. Whether it was passing the ball, blocking, catching, false starting, whatever it may be, we weren’t executing as players. To me, there’s nothing a coach can say. We have to take accountability for it. So I got a little passionate about it.” – Baldwin, via Seahawks.com, on the reason for his outburst.

Injury Update:  Center Justin Britt sprained his ankle in the game and his status moving forward is up in the air.

Next up: The Seahawks host the Texans in Week 8.

LOS ANGELES RAMS

Last time out: Rams 33, Cardinals 0

Record: 5-2 overall, 2-1 in division

Snapshot: The Rams scored 20 second-quarter points to blow open a close game and cruise to the win. Todd Gurley had 106 rushing yards and a touchdown as Los Angeles rolled up 197 yards on the ground as a team.

Notable: Linebacker Alec Ogletree broke the arm of Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer on a blitz in the second quarter and Lamarcus Joyner picked off the pass. Gurley scored one play later for a 13-0 lead. Cardinals backup signal-caller Drew Stanton finished 5-of-14 for 62 yards and an interception.

Quotable: “I think it was our best game of the year.” -- Rams coach Sean McVay on the dominant victory.

Key Stat: 28. The number of first downs for the Rams as they frequently strung together long drives to wear down the Cardinals.

Next up: The Rams have a bye in Week 8.
