The Monday Night Football game for week six in the National Football League features an NFC West matchup between two teams struggling to keep up with the Seattle Seahawks.

The St. Louis Rams are a defensive minded team that is adjusting to life with a new young quarterback. The Rams knew they were going to be without Sam Bradford to start the season and young signal caller Austin Davis has taken over the starting job and has put up big numbers. Unfortunately, those numbers have not translated to wins on the young season. The Rams just fell short of a miraculous comeback last week against the Philadelphia Eagles. After falling behind early by double digits, the Rams mounted an excellent comeback attempt and although they fell short it gives the offense reason for optimism. They will need to put up big points this week if the hope to defeat the San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers are off a win over the Kansas City Chiefs but they have yet to put together a complete game. They are struggling on offense and are dealing with off the field distractions. Their head coach Jim Harbaugh is said to be disliked by the front office as well as the players and he has seemingly worn out his welcome with this franchise. The CEO of the 49ers has suggested that the reports are not true, but this has to be a distraction for this team.
