short. raiders win their second straight, 34-20. >> we beat a playoff caliber team according to everyone. so i wonder what the narrative will be now. >> we're having a lot of fun. playing relaxed and doing what we're supposed to do. that was a good defense for us to play and it was a good challenge for us and we have many more. i'm excited today and we're going to get to the next target. >> it's a little premature to be thinking far, that far ahead, playoff-wise. but there's no reason why you can't think of yourself as a playoff team. >> i can't say it enough. if the season ended today, the raiders would be in the playoffs as the top wild card team in the afc. but there's no time to celebrate. they head to pittsburgh next sunday. talk about two teams going in opposite directions. 49ers hoping to avoid dropping to 2-6. rams looking to go 4-3, which would be the first time they have done that since 2006. practice squad runningback
gaskins in the lineup. reggie bush, out, carted off with a knee injury. reported that bush tore his acl. could be career-ender. mike davis also left with a hand injury, but when he was in there, he struggled to get out of the end zone. that, folks, is a safety. 3-2, san francisco still leads. two of the lowest scoring teams in the league. still 3-2 in the second quarter. todd gurley, a 71-yard touchdown. rams went for two and they had a 10-3 lead after that number. it was 13-3 rams later in the second. here's a micro microcosm. rams lead 13-6. final minute of the first half, austin. 20-6 game at the intermission. kaepernick struggled all day, didn't take them long, down he goes, sacked, one of three in the game. and the rams put the game away, thanks to austin's second score of the game.

martinsville, logano looking for his fourth straight win. 47 to go. logano in the league, but spun out by matt kenseth. logano would finish 37th, dropping from 1st to 8th. logano called the wreck a coward move by kenseth, allowing jeff gordon to take the lead and he would hang on for his first win of the year. gordon is retiring after the season, but clinches a spot in the chase finals three weeks from today. good for jeff gordon, trying to go out on top. not good for the 49ers. >> yeah. >> one more game before their bye week and you saw the coach taking the blame, as he does every week. >> he does. >> jim tomsula, lot of speculation, should they make a lot of changes at the bye week? i'm not sure what they could do at this point that would improve the team. >> if you were to say the 49ers' biggest problem is what? >> how much time we got? >> we got to get going. >> 9 seconds. >> all right. we'll continue that. thanks for watching. see you back here in half an
