The San Francisco 49ers had a breath of fresh air on Sunday. They played against the Los Angeles Rams in SoFi stadium and came out with the win 23-20. Robbie Gould hit the game winning 43 yard field goal as time expired.

It was an impressive win for a 49ers team that had been struggling lately. They had lost the previous three games coming in and most people didn’t think they would fair well against the solid Rams team. It was a positive sign for the team after having most of this season lost to injuries and poor performance.

In the 49ers next matchup, on Sunday, they will take on the Buffalo Bills. The Bills are a solid team that I think will give the 49ers trouble. Josh Allen and his big arm will test the defense of the 49ers.

Meanwhile, the 49ers still have a banged up offense missing with starting quarterback Jimmy Garropplo and tight end George Kittle among others. They will need another solid performance from their defense and enough offense to keep the Bills in check.

My prediction: I believe the San Francisco 49ers will prevail again in an upset. I wouldn’t bet money on it, but I believe the Bills will stumble against the coaching of Kyle Shanahan and company.

The game is set for Monday Night Football at 5:05 PM PST at State Farm Stadium in Glendale AZ .
