The Los Angeles Rams will take on the San Francisco 49ers in the second game of a Monday night doubleheader.
The Rams are playing in their first regular season game since returning to Los Angeles during the offseason. The Rams have missed the playoffs in each of the past 11 season and will start veteran Case Keenum at quarterback while No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff will be inactive for the game.
The 49ers, with new coach Chip Kelly, also have their quarterback issues, as Blaine Gabbert will get the start over Colin Kaepernick. San Francisco is coming off a 5–11 season in which the team's defense was one of the NFL's worst, giving up 387 yards a game. The 49ers offense was no better, ranking next to last in the NFL in total offense and dead last in scoring offense, averaging only 14.9 points a game.
