# 14: Niners Week, Monday Night Football, and the "Hard Knocks" Season Finale
September 8, 2016•25 min
The “Beat L.A.” chant will be music to the ears of Los Angeles Rams fans when their team steps onto the field to take on storied rival, the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. The Rams and Niners have been doing battle with one another since 1950, but the rivalry lost a bit of its luster when the Rams moved to St. Louis—even though San Francisco’s Ken Norton, Jr. insisted that his former L.A. opponents were the “same old Rams.” Joshua Neuman and Tunisha Singleton discuss the NFC West matchup and cast their official predictions for the 2016 NFL season. Plus, this week marked the season finale of HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” an episode in which Mike Thomas got confused for Chris Rock, Jimmy Kimmel became William Hayes’ biggest fan, and all of us came to the startling realization that Russell Wilson and Ciara ain’t got shit on Case and Kimberly Keenum.
