The final game on the docks for Week 4 pits the Los Angeles Rams against the San Francisco 49ers. It is a pair that has replaced the Niners-Seahawks as the NFC West’s leading rivalry in recent years.
Part of this is due to the success of both teams—Los Angeles and San Francisco have combined to represent the conference in three of the last four Super Bowls—but it also stems from the two men calling the shots.
The Kyle Shanahan-Sean McVay connection is well established by now. They worked together on the staff of Mike Shanahan, Kyle’s father, in Washington from 2010–2013. The two later got their first head-coaching job in the same division in the West in 2017.
Shanahan has a 7–4 one-on-one record against McVay, thanks in large part to a six-game regular-season winning streak over the Rams, but L.A. is the one that last season’s NFC Championship Game showdown of the teams. I had come. and went on to capture an elusive ring for both squads.
It’s the type of watershed moment that could have confidence and speed on McVay’s way on Monday night, though Shanahan will certainly have a few tricks up his sleeve as the 49ers survive a 1-3 start.
