The San Francisco 49ers are continuing the tradition of giving back during the holiday season with the “12 Days of Giving” campaign. Every day until Christmas, the team will highlight a different holiday community event.

Check back here for updates with photos, videos and more of 49ers players and staff spreading joy throughout the Bay Area.

Our staff writers break down San Francisco’s next matchup, a Week 16 divisional game in Los Angeles against the Rams. San Francisco will look to replicate the formula that powered the team to a 28-0 win in Week 1.

Let’s dive into the keys to the game in this “Four Downs” preview of the 49ers upcoming matchup, presented by SunPower.

Los Angeles responded with a 51-yard kick return by rookie wideout Pharoh Cooper. Goff hit Austin for a gain of 15 on 3rd-and-11. The Rams elected to go for a 4th-and-2 in field goal range. The gamble paid off. Goff completed a short play-action pass to tight end Lance Kendricks for a gain of 24 down to San Francisco’s 6-yard line. Shortly after, Todd Gurley pounded in his sixth touchdown run of the season from 1-yard out.jersye

McManis (6-1, 225) originally signed with the 49ers on May 2, 2016, spent training camp with the team and cheap jerseys and was released on Aug. 27. He was signed to San Francisco’s practice squad on Nov. 29.

A 22-year-old native of Olive Branch, MS, McManis appeared in 47 games in four years at the University of Memphis (2012-15) where he registered 110 tackles, nine tackles for loss and three sacks.

The willingness of both players to play multiple gamedays roles should be commended. And they have been throughout the week by teammates and coaches as the 49ers prepare for a Christmas Eve road game against the Los Angeles Rams.


“It was a lot to ask of him,” defensive coordinator Jim O’Neil said of Bethea. “I told him after the game that there are not a lot of guys in the NFL that would have done that for their team. He gave us everything he had in there. He battled.”

It was Bethea’s first snaps at linebacker since his high school days in Virginia. And in the moment, Bethea displayed what has made him a respected locker room leader throughout his NFL career.

“We signed up for this, win, lose or draw. It’s about being a pro and approaching it that way. We’ve got two games left. Hopefully we can end the season on a two-game win streak.”

Saturday’s Christmas Eve game has provided Bethea with some more perspective during the holiday season.

“We can’t take this thing for granted,” he said. “There are a lot of people who would love to be in our shoes regardless of the record. We’re 1-13, of course we don’t want our record to be that, but we’re definitely in a blessed situation. Every day we’re in a situation to lace ‘em up, go out and practice and get better.
