Cam Akers: Struggles mightily in playoff start

Akers ran 24 times for 48 yards and caught all three targets for 20 yards Sunday. He lost two fumbles in an eventual 30-27 win over the Bucs.

Analysis: Akers was finally given the keys to the Rams backfield, but the end results were not what many were expecting. The Buccaneers do boast one of the premier rush defenses in the league -- spearheaded by dominant nose tackle Vita Vea -- so that should be factored into the rough go of things under a national spotlight. Sony Michel finished with just one carry for four yards, so it appears that Sean McVay was the superior option to use in this particular matchup. The 49ers' rush defense is no slouch either, but Akers figures to find a bit of relief in next week's matchup after posting a total dud.
