Robbie Gould kicked a 44-yard field goal to pull San Francisco into a 20-all tie with the Los Angeles Rams with 3:11 left in the fourth quarter. The Rams scored on a fumble return and then took a 20-17 lead on a 1-yard run by Cam Akers early in the fourth. Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill are putting on quite a show.
The San Francisco 49ers have no idea where they'll be living, practicing or playing next week, thanks to new coronavirus restrictions issued in Santa Clara County while the team was on its flight to Los Angeles. With the latest wave of turmoil in a season rocked by injuries and disappointing results, all the defending NFC champions could control Sunday was the game in front of them — and the Niners have been in absolute control of their rivalry with the Rams for two full seasons. Robbie Gould made a 42-yard field goal as time expired, and the 49ers snapped their three-game losing streak with a 23-20 victory over Los Angeles that completed a sweep of their season series for the second straight year.
The Los Angeles Chargers have activated running back Austin Ekeler from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game at Buffalo. Ekeler has missed the past six games after suffering a hamstring injury during the first half of an Oct. 4 loss at Tampa Bay. Ekeler has 392 yards from scrimmage (248 rushing, 144 receiving) and is averaging 5.1 yards per carry.
