Donald ripped the ball from the arms of running back Matt Breida then held onto it for a fumble recovery.

Meanwhile, things haven't been easy for San Francisco, and their match last Monday only extended their streak of losses to four.

But on Sunday, the 49ers' losing streak reached five games with a 39-10 loss to the unbeaten Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium.

"[We've got to] just keep attacking the ball, keep having that focus during the week which is trying to create fumbles, trying to get interceptions, not being satisfied with pass breakups and I think it will come", Witherspoon said. "He's in a class of his own".

"The defense's overall energy, the sense of urgency that they had today was really special", coach Sean McVay said. But Rams linebacker Samson Ebukam set the tone when he chased down Beathard in the backfield and knocked the ball from his hand while recording a sack. Donald set a career high fourth sack of the game in the fourth quarter. According to Pro Football Focus, they provided pressure on 17 of 35 dropbacks, and it would've been more if not for a series of quick throws created to get the ball out of Beathard's hands immediately. "But, our defense overall, Aaron was a big part of that". "It seemed like every time we sat down we got back up and went on the field". But there was a lot more than just turnovers that led to this 29-point drubbing.

Goff also threw a 19-yard TD pass to Brandin Cooks in the second quarter. His most memorable score was his last one when Goff somehow found him through traffic on a cross-field screen pass and Gurley broke a tackle from Reuben Foster and raced in for the 12-yard score. "They tried to challenge us, go over the top, which you want the corner there on, but usually the middle-third player will show up with the speed Colbert has, and he did and he made a good play and unfortunately he got hurt".

It's hard to determine whether the 49ers are worse at creating turnovers or committing them. The Niners have committed 14 turnovers since their last takeaway on September 30 against the Chargers.

Beathard has thrown seven interceptions and lost three fumbles in four starts as the 49ers have committed 14 straight turnovers since their last takeaway on September 30 against the Chargers. Now that he's out, Shanahan said the Niners will look at all options, including the potential return to free safety of cornerback Jimmie Ward once he recovers from a hamstring injury.

The Rams barely had time to celebrate this victory before fielding questions about what comes next. We're as far away from one as we could have today.

Breida has shown good sparks as the team's main running back with 445 yards rushing and an NFL-best 6.5 yards per carry.

The 49ers tapped Reed in the fifth round of the recent National Football League draft out of Kansas State, where he played predominately outside as a traditional cornerback. He did not re-enter the game, but he returned to the team's sideline a short time later after X-rays were negative.
