NFL schedule 2012: Rams host 49ers in rematch of tie game

Brian Bahr

It's the rare rematch of a rare tie when the Rams host the 49ers on Sunday.

Something must give -- then again, maybe not -- when the San Francisco 49ers are in St. Louis on Sunday to face the Rams in a rematch of the game with no winner the last time the two teams met.

The 49ers and Rams played to the NFL season's only tie this season, 24-24 in San Francisco in Week 10. Both teams missed field goals in overtime and played to the first tie in the NFL in four years.

The 49ers (8-2-1) could start quarterback Colin Kaepernick this time around. The second-year player started the last two games over Alex Smith, who was injured and replaced by Kaepernick in the last game against the Rams. Smith hasn't seen the field since as the 49ers have won two straight.

The Rams (4-6-1) probably have to win out to have a shot at the playoffs for the first time in almost 10 years. They can at least slow down the NFC West-leading 49ers in their quest for the top seed in the conference if nothing else.

The 49ers and Rams kick off at noon CT on Sunday in a game televised by FOX. Here's the rest of the weekend's NFL schedule. All times are Central.
