The Los Angeles Rams enter the regular season fin
ale with many goals already accomplished. Having clinched a playoff berth and NFC West crown http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/...ker-jersey , the Rams won’t be able to get the number one seed (New Orleans Saints clinched) but can do the next best thing by clinching a bye week in the playoffs.Standing the way are the pesky San Francisco 49ers. The past three weeks, the 49ers have defeated the Broncos, broken their losing streak against the Seattle Seahawks, and lost in a tight battle with the Chicago Bears. Here are some of the key players who will play and try to play spoiler for the Rams aspirations.QB Nick MullensThe opening day third string quarterback, Nick Mullens has surprised with his play. Since being named the starter, Mullens has a better than expected 3-4 record entering this contest. For the season, he has completed 153/241 (63.5%) of his passes for 1,995 yards, 10 TDs, and seven interceptions. Mullens also boasts a 59.4 QBR which would be considered “above average”. Look for the Rams defense to ride their mini hot streak of strong play and hopefully limit Mullens.LB Fred WarnerQuietly leading the 49ers defense in tackles is rookie Fred Warner. The third round pick out of BYU has played in every game while amassing 109 total tackles entering the finale. With the Reuben Foster situation coming to a close in the Bay, Warner’s emergence helps to mitigate losing a first round pick at the position group. Look for Warner to get his crack at the Rams offense.RB Jeff Wilson Jr. and WR Kendrick BourneQuietly, a pair of young skill players have emerged for the 49ers due to injury and situation. Wilson Jr. has seen his workload increase as Matt Breida and Alfred Morris have had their issues in the season. With George Kittle being the primary passing target along with Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis battling injuries Authentic Samson Ebukam Jersey , Bourne has quietly been the steady receiver for the team.With Breida and Pettis having their season ended early, Wilson Jr. and Bourne will likely get their share of looks in the season finale. In five games, Wilson Jr. has 257 yards on 63 carries while also catching 12 passes for 98 yards. Bourne is actually the third leading receiver for the team with 37 receptions for 428 yards and three touchdowns.LB Elijah LeeAnother young player emerging towards the end of the season, Lee has been all over the field, especially in the last couple of weeks at the middle linebacker spot. For the season, Lee is the third leading tackler for the 49ers with 56 total tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble. Coming in strong as of late, Lee has back to back games with double digit tackles (11 against Chicago, 10 against Seattle). Lee and Warner will have their challenge against the Rams rushing attack, whether it’s Todd Gurley coming back healthy or veteran C.J. Anderson. With the Denver Broncos getting steamrolled by the New York Jets last week, rookie receiver Courtland Sutton turned to teammates on the sideline and vowed to play hard until the very end.He fulfilled that promise by running the length of the field to wrangle down safety Marcus Maye at the 1-yard line and prevent an end-of-game pick-6.Sutton Womens Marcus Peters Jersey , who caught his first touchdown pass as a pro in the first quarter of Denver's 34-16 loss, was Case Keenum's target in the end zone on the final play of the game.The ball was batted around and ended up in hands of Maye, who took off down the sideline."I had already told everybody on the sideline there ain't no quit offensively and defensively," Sutton said. "There was no quit. We were going to fight to the end no matter what the score was. And I was going to give everything I had until the clock said zero-zero-zero."Maye chugged his way through would-be tacklers for a 104-yard interception return.He needed 105."That's a pride play," Broncos linebacker Todd Davis said. "The last thing you ever want to do is let another team score.""I think everybody on the sideline knew that there was no quit in me," said Sutton, whose stop at the 1-yard line left Maye with the longest interception return without a score in NFL history.Maye, who was playing in just his second game since missing most of training camp and the preseason while dealing with ankle and foot injuries, buried his helmet in the turf after getting tackled just shy of the goal line while teammate Parry Nickerson patted him on the back.Neither Maye, who ran a total of 140.7 yards on the return, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, nor Sutton said anything to each other after the play."Nah Authentic Austin Blythe Jersey , I know he was tired because I was tired," Sutton said. "So, I just kind of laid there like catch your breath a little bit."Sutton's heart and hustle weren't lost on his teammates."It shows a lot about who he is, and I really appreciate that," Keenum said. "Not just what happened on the play, but just the type of guy he is. I'll line up and go fight with those guys any day."The Broncos are going to need some resiliency as they try to snap their three-game skid Sunday when they host the Rams (5-0) ."This is a game we know we can win against a team that nobody feels we can beat," Davis said.A forecast that calls for snow and temperatures in the lower 20s might also help slow LA's dynamic offense featuring Jared Goff, who leads the league with 1,727 yards passing, and Todd Gurley, who tops the NFL with seven TD runs."That's what we do here in Denver, man http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/...old-jersey , we love the cold," nose tackle Domata Peko said. "We practiced all week in it, so hopefully these sunny LA boys come out here and see how cold it is."Special teams coordinator Tom McMahon said the Broncos "got lucky on Wednesday and had the blizzard, so I think the guys are ready for that. We got the same day Wednesday that I hope we get on Sunday, and we played through it pretty well."That was not a blizzard."To me it was," McMahon said. "The snowflakes were taller than me coming down."Sutton was impressed, too.That "was the first time I've ever played in snow," Sutton said. "It was a lot of fun. Everybody from up north they were laughing at me, telling me I needed to calm down. But I thought it was a lot of fun. I thought it was cool."Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: ://arniestapleton
