In an ending that baffled many, the St Louis Rams did something that hadn’t happened in the NFL in 4 years.
St Louis was a 13 point underdog coming into the game but played NFC West leading San Francisco 49ers to a 24-24 tie. It’s the first tie since the Eagles and Bengals did the same thing in 2008.
St Louis scored late in the 4th quarter to take a 24-21 lead on a pass from Sam Bradford to Danny AmendolA but a 33 yard David Akers FG tied the game and send it into overtime.
In overtime, San Fran had the first chance to win but Akers missed the GW FG. That gave the Rams a chance to win. Greg Zuerlein was set up for a 53 yard FG when the Rams were called for a delay of game penalty. Zuerlein missed the 58 yard kick and the game went on.
The Rams led the game at one point 14-0 and after 3 quarters 17-7, but the Niners scored 17 points in the 4th to tie the game and send it into overtime. The Niners were without Alex Smith for the second half after he suffered a concussion late in the second quarter.
Sam Bradford was 26/39 for 275 yards and 2 TD’s in the game while Steven Jackson had 101 yards on 29 carries and a touchdown. With the tie, the Rams record goes to 3-5-1 on the season.
