Top 5, bottom 5 graded PFF players in 49ers Week 7 loss to Rams

The San Francisco 49ers were throttled in Week 7, losing 39-10 to the Los Angeles Rams in a game that was close for roughly the first quarter. The 49ers had some opportunities early to make the game interesting, but four turnovers cost them and they dropped to 1-6 with the loss. Each week, people are curious about Pro Football Focus grades from the game that passed. I am not a huge fan of the subjective aspects of the grading, but they are fun discussion points, and we can figure out some context around the grades.
