Thursday Night Farceball usually comes immediately after the conclusion of Thursday Night Football, but I had to drive an hour down to my in-laws’ house after the game then make my way all the back home today before putting this bad boy together. That’s right, I was there!
Most of this game was intensely boring as a 49ers fan in person, to be honest. At the half, it was 97 to nothing and Todd Gurley had 17 touchdowns off of 32 Brian Hoyer first-play interceptions (I had a few adult beverages, this may not be accurate). The second half was great! And that takes us to the five crazy, insane things that happened on Thursday Night Football this week.
Thursday Night Farceball: Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers
5. RAMS-49ERS ACTUALLY HAD A GOOD GAME?!
The first half was set up to be another Thursday Night Football stinker outside of Todd Gurley’s fantasy football prowess, but this week’s Thursday Night Football had everything, especially in the last few minutes.
The 49ers scored a touchdown to bring them within a two-point conversion to tie it!
But they missed it.
So they needed an on-side kick!
Which they pulled off!
And then #4 happened…
4. A JUKE SO DEVASTATING IT’S LITERALLY ILLEGAL
Then Trent Taylor juked Nickell Robey-Coleman so hard he got called for offensive pass interference.
Imagine getting shook so hard the refs thought you were the victim of a penalty. At least he got to go home knowing he lost the battle but won the war.

2. THE NFL CARES ABOUT PLAYER SAFETY, REALLY
