When the San Francisco 49ers play the Los Angeles Rams, there’s no way there will be any better games around.

The next regular season game for any NFL team is still a ways away, but the hype behind what will be incredible to watch between Los Angeles and San Francisco will not disappoint. We all know how many eyes will be on Jimmy Garoppolo and how he handles control of the 49ers after going 5-0 to finish out last year.

But that’s not the only story.

Jared Goff will also be one of the top quarterbacks that people will want to see after having a tremendous breakout year in his second year playing for the Los Angeles Rams since being taken with the number one overall pick.

A divisional rivalry was already present between these two teams, who have had their fair share of time at the top of the NFC West, but it could be a two-team race next season given how they’ve both upgraded, respectively.

Richard Sherman signing with San Francisco is the latest sign that the 49ers really aren’t here to mess around. Now that they’ve got what they hope is their franchise quarterback for the foreseeable future in Garoppolo, there’s not a lot that they want to get in their way.

However, the rise of the Los Angeles Rams makes for the perfect clash that California football needed. It’s unsure how the Oakland Raiders or Los Angeles Chargers will fare next season, but the Rams and 49ers aren’t expected to be at the bottom of the pack.

Los Angeles upgraded their defense with the pick ups of Marcus Peters from Kansas City and Aqib Talib from Denver. If there’s any indication that defense is what can carry a team deep into the playoffs or even to the Super Bowl, it’s team’s like Jacksonville from last season, and even Denver from Super Bowl 50 and the Seahawks before them.

Both have a fair shot at making Super Bowl 53, but that all really depends on how they play against each other. Knowing how good they’re expected to be the rest of the year, it’ll put that much more pressure and importance on who wins when they host each other.

And the best part is that this won’t be a one year fad, it has the real potential to be a rivalry that NFL fans indulge and enjoy for the next half decade, if not longer.
