Week 1 was a whole lot of fun if you’re a 49ers fan, hoping that they can continue their winning ways in Los Angeles this weekend.

The San Francisco 49ers travel down the coast for Week 2, set to face the Rams Sunday afternoon. A hyper-competitive rivalry that has yielded great results in the past, this week’s clash promises to me no different.

The 49ers have been the majority victors in recent years, winning eight consecutive regular-season matchups. San Francisco currently leads in the All-Time series, (), giving them bragging rights with their divisional foes.

The Red & Gold won’t overlook the Rams though, anticipating a tough matchup with their rival. And although they have a lot of new faces, the stables still remain in L.A..

“There’s a lot of new guys out there, them playing in one game and trying to figure out some of their new players that you don’t have a history with. But, once you turn on the tape and try to see it, yeah, you don’t know some of the guys, but you definitely know 99 [Aaron Donald] and you know the quarterback and then you watch the schemes and nothing’s really different,” Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday.

Week 2’s clash will be quarterback Brock Purdy’s first encounter with the Rams as the starter. The former Mr. Irrelevant took in Rams week twice last season as the backup, now excited to face them on the field for the first time.

“Last year, the two games that we game planned for them and then not playing in either of them. Then here’s my third time doing it, so it feels like I have played against them, but I haven’t. So yeah, I’m excited to,” Purdy told the media Thursday.

What time does the regular-season game start?

Kickoff is set for 1:05 p.m. PST on Sunday, Sept. 17th, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

Where can I watch the game?

The game will air live on FOX. The broadcast team includes Kevin Kugler and Mark Sanchez in the booth, with Laura Okmin as the sideline reporter.
