Rams vs. 49ers: Live Updates, Score and Highlights for Thursday Night Football
Los Angeles RamsvsSan Francisco 49ers
The Los Angeles Rams held off the San Francisco 49ers for a narrow 41-39 win in what became not only the highest-scoring game of the 2017 season so far but also the highest-scoring Thursday Night Football game ever played. Full of drama and intrigue, including a muffed punt, a couple fumbles lost and a recovered onside kick by the 49ers, this game proved that the league's youngest coaches have some tricks up their sleeves.
