The Rams have won two of their last three games and they are in a good position heading into the season opener against the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
The Rams also have three home games in nine days.
The biggest challenge for the Rams, however, is to remain healthy.
Head coach Jeff Fisher, his quarterback Jared Goff and offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur are all expected to miss this week’s game against the Chicago Bears due to the flu.
Rams coach Jeff Football is not expected to return to the sideline this week and he could miss his first game since Jan. 7 against the Tennessee Titans.
The first half of the season has been difficult for the team, with only three wins in their last 11 games.
However, the team is on pace to make it to a third straight NFC Championship Game after the Rams defeated the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night.
The 49ers have won six straight and have a winning record in their past eight games.
The team has won five straight games against NFC West foes, but lost to the Washington Eagles on Sunday after having a seven-game winning streak snapped with a loss to the Rams.

Gurley is one of the top players in the NFL and the Rams have been counting on him to be their best player at the quarterback position.
He has thrown for more than 300 yards in each of his last two games.
Rams defensive end Robert Quinn (99) sacks Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) during the first half at FedEx Field.
Quinn was injured during a tackle by Washington linebacker Preston Smith.
QUINN: We’ve seen that they are one of those teams that will get beat, we’ll get beat again and they’ll win again and that’s what you’re going to see.
They have the best depth at the position in the league.
If you have an outside linebacker, you need to be in the game and that was the case against the Bears, but they still got to be smart in how they did it.
I think they were smart on the defense.
They knew what they had.
The defense was good in the fourth quarter, but I thought they did a good job of playing with one-on-one.
That’s what they did well.
It was the same for the offense.
They had great runs, great plays.
The running game, I thought, was solid.
It’s a team game and we were able to keep it close.
It just came down to a lot of the same stuff we’ve been doing for the past few years, but the quarterback had to make a few mistakes in that game.
They got a little bit of a breather in the third quarter, and then the defense was able to do its job.
That was definitely the difference, and the defense got the better of it.
The Eagles got their fourth consecutive win over the Rams at home, and they ended a four-game losing streak against the Rams when they lost to them at Lambeau Field.
This was a good week to play at home.
It felt good to come back and win.
The offensive line played well.
The run game was good.
The receivers did a great job of staying in front of them.
That is one thing that we’ve done well for the last few years.
I thought our receivers were very comfortable and we had some good plays in the passing game.
QUINT: The quarterback had a couple of great throws and a couple interceptions.
He was a little sloppy on some throws, but he made some great throws.
It doesn’t mean we don’t want to keep doing what we do well, but we also need to find some different things that make us better and we’ve got to do it at home and I think we did that this week.
We’re happy with where we are at and we’re happy to be able to go out and play good football and get to the playoffs.
They’re a good football team.
They can win a lot.
We’ve got a tough game against them, but that’s the way it is.
This is what we’ve known since day one.
We don’t need to change a thing.
We just have to play to our strengths.
QUINCY: It was a great atmosphere out there, a great home game, and it was a perfect fit for us.
We had some fun with it.
It really was a special day for us because of the weather and all the excitement of it being at home in front the home crowd.
QUARTERBACK QUOTABLE: I felt good.
We all felt good, and I felt like I could take care of business.
We didn’t make a mistake.
QUICK PICKS: I’m looking forward to getting back to the Super Bowl, but this week I’m ready to go.
I feel like I can go to a Super Bowl and win a championship. QUOTEWOR
