San Francisco vs. St. Louis: Takeaways from St. Louis' 35-11 Loss to 49ers

The St. Louis Rams (1-3) hosted the San Francisco 49ers (2-2) in what turned out to be a humiliating 35-11 loss for the Rams in prime time. 

St. Louis suffered lopsided losses to Atlanta and Dallas in back-to-back weeks and desperately needed a big win to get its season back on track, but the Rams were not even competitive for a third week in a row. 

The Rams ended the game with 18 total rushing yards. Their longest run of the night was for seven measly yards. 

The passing game was not much better. Sam Bradford was picked off once and completed less than 50 percent of his passes. As a result, the Rams were forced to punt the ball 11 times.

On defense, the Rams had no answer for the San Francisco run game. The 49ers embarrassed the Rams with 219 rushing yards and three touchdowns on the ground. 

The Rams will have an extra-long week before taking on a manageable Week 5 opponent in Jacksonville. For now, here are the takeaways from St. Louis' abomination of a game against San Francisco.
