The bye week could not have come at a more perfect time for the 49ers.
This team desperately needed to rest and regroup to prepare themselves for their final playoff push. And boy, did they start off their push on the right foot with a win on the road against the surging Rams.
It wasn’t the prettiest of wins given all of the turnovers, but there was some impressive execution out there by the 49ers.
Here are four takeaways from the 49ers’ 23-20 Week 12 win against the Rams.
Richard Sherman has not lost a step
Richard Sherman has been missing in action since injuring his calf back in Week 1 against the Cardinals. The injury was concerning since it was the same leg which he tore his Achilles. When the 49ers announced Sherman would be active against the Rams, I believed it was best to bring him along slowly.
