SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

Last time out: 49ers 25, Ravens 20

Record: 2-4 overall, 0-1 in division

Snapshot: Former Ravens receivers Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith had big days as the 49ers snapped a four-game losing streak. Boldin finished the game with five catches for 102 yards while Smith added three catches for 96 yards including a 76-yard touchdown.

Notable: Quarterback Colin Kaepernick was 16-of-27 for 340 yards and two touchdowns. The 49ers lost to the Ravens in the Super Bowl three seasons ago. Baltimore heaved a desperation pass to the end zone for Steve Smith as time expired, but the pass fell incomplete.

Quotable: "It was weird to look across and know that I was competing against them. But I'm all in out West." – Torrey Smith, on facing his former team

Injury update:49ers running back Carlos Hyde aggravated a foot injury early in the second half but stayed in the game and is expected to play in Week 7

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

Last time out: Panthers 27, Seahawks 23

Record: 2-4 overall, 0-1 in division

Snapshot: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton found tight end Greg Olsen for a 26-yard touchdown with 32 seconds left for the game-winning points. Carolina completed 80-yard touchdown drives on its final two possessions to erase a nine-point fourth quarter deficit.

Notable: The Seahawks defense had a miscommunication on Olsen's touchdown, allowing him to catch the ball without anyone in the area. It's the second time in two weeks Seattle gave up a large fourth-quarter lead and lost. Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham had eight catches for 140 yards in the loss.

Quotable: "It's very frustrating, especially when you know we had them. We don't (stink). We know who we are. We're not finishing. We know we're going to be in those pressure situations every game." – Safety Earl Thomas on the loss

Injury update: Linebacker Bobby Wagner missed the game with a pectoral injury but is aiming for a Week 7 return

Next up: The Seahawks travel to play the 49ers in Week 7 on Thursday Night Football

ST. LOUIS RAMS

Last time out:The Rams were idle in Week 6

Record: 2-3 overall, 2-0 in division

Bye-week synopsis: The Rams didn't play last week, but did gain a half-game on their two biggest division rivals because the Cardinals and Seahawks lost. St. Louis has a stretch coming up where it faces the Browns, 49ers, Vikings, Bears and Ravens and will aim to close the gap on the division-leading Cardinals against those foes. The Rams have been pretty much as advertised this season, with a stingy defense but an offense that is only averaging 16.8 points per game, second-to-last in the NFL. The emergence of rookie running back Todd Gurley gives the Rams hope that their offense can improve and they can make a run in the NFC West.

Next up: The Rams host the Browns in Week 7
