SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The San Francisco 49ers have taken possession 21 times in two games this season and been stopped short of the end zone each time.

That’s not quite what they expected when they hired Kyle Shanahan as head coach after he led the league’s most productive offense a year ago for Atlanta.

Despite those struggles to start the season, the 49ers (0-2) are trying to stay positive heading into Thursday night’s game against the Los Angeles Rams when they will try to avoid joining the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1976 and the 1943 Brooklyn Dodgers as the only teams in history to go three straight games to start a season without a touchdown.
