San Francisco (1-2) at St. Louis (1-2)
When: 7:30 p.m. today.
TV: NFL Network (cable).
Line: 49ers -3 (42).
The skinny: The 49ers may be broken. Two straight losses is one thing, but their offense has been horrendous. That may have them backed into a corner and playing with something to prove at St. Louis. The Niners have been good on the road under Jim Harbaugh, but the Rams went 1-0-1 against the eventual Super Bowl runners-up last year. But it feels like the Rams, in a 31-7 loss to Dallas, showed a little more of their true colors last week than the Niners – who should bounce back.
MattE's pick: 49ers 27, Rams 17.
