Rams vs. 49ers final score: Overtime ends with Greg Zuerlein, St. Louis taking huge win

US PRESSWIRE

The St. Louis Rams top the San Francisco 49ers in their second overtime meeting in a month.

The St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers ended up in overtime for the second game in as many meetings, but this one didn't end in a tie score—some late mistakes from Colin Kaepernick opened the door for the Rams, and Greg Zuerlein had his best game in weeks to seal a 16-13 victory.

In overtime, after a particularly bad punt, the Rams looked set to avoid the tie in a much less exciting fashion. David Akers appeared ready to end things once and for all with a 51-yard field goal, but he missed wide and the game went back to the Rams, whose offense continued its steady, inefficient performance up the field. Sam Bradford and Steven Jackson got the ball within 54 yards of the uprights, and Greg Zuerlein did the rest, kicking his second 50-yarder of the afternoon.

The Rams improve to 5-6-1 on the season with the win. Sam Bradford finished 26-for-39 for 221 yards (and three important carries for 31 more), while Steven Jackson rushed 21 times for just 48 yards but also caught five passes for 69 yards. Chris Givens continued to impress with Danny Amendola injured, catching a career-high 11 passes for 92 yards. Their most important offensive player, though, was... Janoris Jenkins, who tied the game with an wild hustle play after Kaepernick botched a pitch to Ted Ginn.
