NFL: Bobby Wagner bodies pitch invader during LA Rams vs San Francisco 49ers


The LA Rams travelled to the San Francisco 49ers in week four, with the hosts taking a much needed victory to leave both sides 2-2 after the opening rounds.

Sean McVay, despite his attacking nous, is struggling to find a solution for the struggling attack of the Rams, who fell to a 24-9 defeat on Monday.

It’s now seven straight regular season victories over the Rams for the 49ers, extracting revenge for their NFC Championship defeat last season.

Cooper Kupp career-best night

On an evening of struggles for the Rams, some solace can be taken from Cooper Kupp’s performance, with the wide receiver setting a career best record.

He caught 14 passes for 122 yards which is the best of his career to date, his performance was aided by Tyler Higbee making 10 catches for 73 yards.

However, despite some positives, it was a woeful night in the main, with it being pretty much all downhill after they opened the scoring.

After Matt Gay’s field goal, a touchdown for the hosts saw them take a four point advantage into the second quarter, where the scoring carried on in the same form.

Again, a Matt Gay field goal opened the scoring in the second quarter, just like it did in the first, before the 49ers responded with a touchdown, giving them an eight point lead at the break.

The third quarter continued on suit, with a Matt Gay field goal for the Rams starting proceedings before the fourth quarter saw the 49ers blitz off into the distance, scoring an unanswered 10 points.

During the second quarter, a streaker with a message painted on his back ran onto the field of play and disrupted the game.

Obviously, it’s against the law to streak at sporting events, so it certainly isn’t advised, not for any cause, especially with the disruption it causes to the game.

However, one fan took matters into his own hands at the game, but found out the hard way that he should probably just stick to his seat next time.

He was brought to an abrupt stop when he met Rams linebacker, Bobby Wagner, who flattened the invader and laid out the man who is an animal rights activist.

Regardless of how good the cause is, disrupting sporting events isn’t the way to go, but the footage did really captivate iconic NFL star, Peyton Manning who in the studio on punditry wanted to watch the takedown again.
