While the 49ers have enjoyed a period of dominance, rivalries in the NFL can ebb and flow, and the Rams will be eager to turn the tide in their favor in future matchups. Even though the Rams won when it truly counted in the playoffs, they’ve been dominated in the regular season. As they prepare to face the 49ers once again, they’ll seek to create a new chapter in this historic rivalry.
