NFL Fans React On Twitter To Surprisingly Entertaining Rams-49ers Game on TNF (TWEETS)
On paper, there wasn’t much to be excited about in regards to last night’s Thursday Night Football contest. The Rams and 49ers are nobody’s darlings, and Thursday night games have a way of, well, sucking.
But last night’s shootout ended in a thrilling 41-39 Rams victory, leaving fans dumbfounded that they actually got a decent TNF game for once—and between two middling teams, no less.
An offensive pass interference call against the 49ers in the final moments of the game solidified the Rams victory, leaving many miffed that such a great game essentially ended on a penalty.
Rams and 49ers having an amazing game.

41 = points scored by the Rams last night.
42 = total points scored this year by the Bengals, Texans, and Giants. Combined.

Leave it to the Rams & Niners to put on the most entertaining NFL game of the season so far. On TNF. In front of no one. Go figure.
