49ers Defeat Rams 31-17

49ers Defeat Rams 31-17

NFL via Getty Images(ST. LOUIS, MO) -- The Rams came out fast taking a a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, but the 49ers dominated the other three quarters to win 31-17.

Colin Kaepernick took San Francisco on his shoulders and threw three touchdowns to push the 49ers record to 4-2.  Midway through the second quarter, Brandon Lloyd burned Janoris Jenkins in man coverage and Kaepernick threw it to him in stride. Lloyd outran Jenkins for an 80-yard touchdown that narrowed St. Louis's lead to 14-10. 

"We had Brandon Lloyd on a double move," Kaepernick said. "We liked the matchup. He did an amazing job."

Kaepernick and the 49ers came out in the second half on a mission.  The 49ers marched 80 yards down the field on a twelve-play drive that was capped off by an 11-yard touchdown grab by Anquan Boldin from Kaepernick. 

"Our receivers did a great job today," Kaepernick said. "Our offensive line did a great job, protecting us and giving us time."

The Rams were again held without a sack.  What was hyped in the offseason as one of the best four-man defensive fronts in the NFL has continued to struggle to generate a pass rush. 

The 49ers will now travel to Denver to face the Broncos on Sunday night.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Drives New Social Responsibilities

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Drives New Social Responsibilities

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell addressed the media Wednesday to promote the new efforts the league is taking to promote social responsibility and curb domestic violence.

In recent months, the NFL has suffered a few bumps and bruises as well as a couple black eyes as prominent players such as Greg Hardy, Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice have had run-ins with the law.

Goodell stated that he had spoken with all 32 team owners as well as prominent executives across the league to outline what changes and policies the league plans to implement. Among them, providing aid to the victims of abuse.

"There was a great deal of focus too, on what support services we can provide to the family," Goodell stated. "Particularly in the cases, obviously, of domestic violence."

The Commissioner wants to provide clear and concise guidelines so that any member of the NFL knows what the repercussions will be if they step afoul of the law.

"We are obviously trying to focus on our policies, our education, what we can do to prevent it from happening and when it happens, deal with it, so it's clear the consequences," Goodell said.

Titans Safety Bernard Pollard Out of the Season

NFL via Getty Images(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- The Tennessee Titans defense has taken a big blow as starting safety Bernard Pollard will miss the remainder of the season after rupturing his right Achilles tendon on Sunday.

Pollard suffered the injury with just 1:09 left in the game when Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer threw what would wind up being the game-deciding play.

"Bernard has been a good leader and a good player for us," Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "That happens in this game. It's unfortunate. We'll certainly hope he stays involved with our team, which I think is an important piece of it. But I know how disappointed he was [Sunday] night, as we all are."

The 29-year-old Pollard is in his ninth NFL season, and second with the Titans. He led the team in tackles last season with 99, and signed a multi-year deal with the team during the offseason.

This will be the first time Pollard has been placed on injured reserve during his career.

Broncos Cut Kicker Matt Prater

Broncos Cut Kicker Matt Prater

National Football League(DENVER) -- The Denver Broncos released veteran kicker Matt Prater on Friday, citing a "football decision". Prater was scheduled to be activated Monday after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

With the move, Denver will put all their faith in Brandon McManus for the remainder of the season. The Broncos acquired the 23-year-old in a trade with the New York Giants, giving up a seventh-round pick in return. McManus has converted all three field goal attempts this year, none longer than 24 yards.

I've been very impressed with him, he's got great potential, he's a great young kicker,'' Broncos head coach John Fox said. "We feel really good, and part of any football decision [is], you go with who you think gives you the best chance.''

The most accurate kicker in franchise history, Prater also holds the league record for longest field goal made, a 64-yard kick in 2013.

NFL Suspends Colts Safety LaRon Landry for Four Games

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- The Colts defense has been dealt another blow as the NFL has suspended safety LaRon Landry for four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Landry will be eligible to return to the team on Oct. 27, the day after the team plays the Pittsburgh Steelers.

After a disappointing first season with the Colts, the 29-year-old Landry has been solid so far this season. In four games, Landry recorded 23 tackles and 1.0 sack.

Landry is in his eighth NFL season, and the Colts are his third team after previously playing for the Washington Redskins and New York Jets.

This is the second time a Colts player has been suspended in recent memory for a PED violation. Defensive end/linebacker Robert Mathis was suspended for four games. He then torr his Achilles tendon while he was working out during suspension.

The Colts have the 21st ranked defense through four games and are one of the worst teams in stopping the pass.

Raiders Fire Head Coach Dennis Allen

Raiders Fire Head Coach Dennis Allen

Justin Sullivan/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- After a 0-4 start to the season, the Oakland Raiders have fired head coach Dennis Allen.

Allen ends his tenure like the six head coaches that preceded him, with a losing record. In his two-plus seasons under the helm, Allen went just 8-28.

Dating back to November 2013, the Raiders have lost ten-straight games and are 0-4 for the first time since 2006. The Raiders lost by 20 or more points in nine of Allen's 36 games as coach.

"It's a tough deal, especially for him," tight end David Ausberry told ESPN. "As we all know, this is the NFL and it keeps growing. So we just all got to as a team pull together and keep going forward. That's all we really can do."

Since Allen was hired back in 2012, the Raiders have a .222 winning percentage, which is the second-worst mark in the NFL over that time.

Since 2001, the Raiders have had seven head coaches, the most in the NFL during that time.

Charles Returns To Help Chiefs Destroy Patriots

Charles Returns To Help Chiefs Destroy Patriots

Jason O. Wastson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Jamaal Charles' ankle seemed just fine Monday night. Charles, who missed the Kansas City Chiefs game last week against the Miami Dolphins with a high ankle sprain, caught two touchdowns and ran for another to help the Chiefs rout the New England Patriots 41-14.

"Coach said he was going to look for me, and see how it feels during the game," Charles said, "and I guess I started feeling like myself. He didn't want to take me out."

Charles finished the game with 18 rushes for 92 yards, and teammate Knile Davis had 16 carries for 107 yards in the win.

The Chiefs (2-2) never allowed the Patriots (2-2) to get comfortable on offense, constantly pressuring Tom Brady, who had three turnovers -- two interceptions and one fumble -- in the loss.

"It was just a bad performance by everybody," Brady said. "We need to make sure we never have this feeling again. We've got to figure out what we have to do better."

Alex Smith completed 20 of 26 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns for Kansas City, whose fans set the record for loudest outdoor sports venue in the first half, according to the Guinness World Records. The Chiefs' fans hit a noise level of 142.2 decibels, which tops the previous record of 137.6 set by the Seattle Seahawks' fans last season.
