The Rams fired coach Jeff Fisher after a blowout loss to the Falcons.


SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

Last time out: Jets 23, 49ers 17

Record: 1-12 overall, 1-3 in division

Snapshot: Jets running back Bilal Powell scampered for a 19-yard touchdown in overtime to give New York the win. He finished with 145 rushing yards and two touchdowns. San Francisco led 17-3 at halftime but New York scored the final 20 points of the contest.

Notable: 49ers running back Carlos Hyde had 17 carries for a career-high 193 yards and caught a touchdown pass as San Francisco seemed to be heading toward its second win of the year, but unraveled late. Hyde was stuffed for no gain on fourth-and-2 from the New York 37 on the first possession of overtime.

Quotable: "It's the life. It's why I used to have hair and now I don't. Every time you go out on the field, you need to make the kick, and today I didn't do that." 49ers kicker Phil Dawson, via 49ers.com, on missing a pair of first-half field goals.

Injury update:Wideout Torrey Smith left the game with a concussion. Tight end Vance McDonald was placed on injured reserve after the game with a shoulder injury.

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

Last time out: Packers 38, Seahawks 10

Record: 8-4-1 overall, 1-1-1 in division

Snapshot: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw five interceptions as Green Bay cruised from start to finish. Aaron Rodgers dominated the matchup of upper-tier quarterbacks, finishing 18-of-23 for 246 yards and three touchdowns before leaving in the fourth quarter with the victory in hand.

Notable: The Seahawks allowed a season-high in points in the first game without star safety Earl Thomas, who will miss the rest of the season with a broken leg. Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright slipped on consecutive plays in coverage in the second quarter, allowing a 24-yard gain and then a 9-yard touchdown.

Quotable:  "That game was on me." Wilson, via Seahawks.com, after the poor performance.

Key stat:1. Seattle's magic number to clinch the NFC West, needing a win or a Cardinals loss to put it on ice.

LOS ANGELES RAMS

Last time out: Falcons 42, Rams 14

Record: 4-9 overall, 2-1 in division

Snapshot: Atlanta piled up 42 unanswered points in the first three quarters to turn this one into a laugher. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was 18-of-28 for 237 yards and three touchdowns. Rams rookie signal-caller Jared Goff was 24-of-41 for 235 yards with a pair of interceptions.

Notable: The Rams fired coach Jeff Fisher after the game despite recently announcing a two-year contract extension. Special teams coach John Fassel has been tabbed as his interim replacement.

Quotable: "This was solely a performance-related issue. And when you look at the team and where it is, and how we get better moving forward – for the fans, for the players, for the coaches, for the organization – we wanted to make sure games like yesterday didn't happen again." – Rams COO Kevin Demoff on the decision to fire Fisher

Key stat:10. Consecutive losing seasons for the Rams after this loss guaranteed they couldn't reach .500.
