Following his offensive explosion in the 49ers' 24-9 victory over the division rival Los Angeles Rams on "Monday Night Football" at Levi's Stadium, receiver Deebo Samuel was feeling himself.
"I don't even look in their eyes anymore," Samuel told Carlos Ramirez, Rod Brooks and Donte Whitner "49ers Postgame Live" after the win. "I don't even look in their eyes anymore.
"I just go out there and line up and you can just see them like, 'Oh here comes Deebo.' "

"It's just the mentality that I come out here with, week in and week out," Samuel explained. "One guy is not going to tackle me."
Samuel credits his father for helping instill that confident mindset when he was 4 years old going up against kids twice his age.
"So he built the toughness in me and it shows, week in and week out," Samuel concluded.
The 49ers Faithful has to love what they saw from Samuel against their division rivals.
If Samuel can do this against the reigning Super Bowl champions and maintain that level throughout the rest of the 2022 NFL season, the 49ers are hopeful they will be in a good spot by the time the playoffs roll around.
