Week 6 NFL Scores And Results: Rams Fall Further Behind 5-1 49ers

The St. Louis Rams can't get out of their own way and the San Francisco 49ers top the white-hot Detroit Lions to pull ahead in the NFC West.

The St. Louis Rams' most impressive offensive performance yet, fittingly enough, involved just three points, and the San Francisco 49ers outscored the undefeated Detroit Lions to move further ahead in an NFC West that's increasingly looking like a one-man race. The 49ers' 25-19 score was the most important of the Week 6 NFL results for West watchers, where the Rams lost 24-3 to the Green Bay Packers and the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks both on a bye week.

The 49ers managed to keep Matthew Stafford from turning his absurd 50 pass attempts into any more than 293 yards and two touchdowns, and Frank Gore's 15 carries for 141 yards were enough to pace an offense in which Alex Smith struggled mightily, going 17-for-32 for just 125 passing yards.

Meanwhile, in Green Bay, the Rams managed to outgain the Packers, taking 22 first downs and 424 net yards, but could only score three points—they weren't even able to make both field goal attempts. If the Rams had enough time to turn their intermittently explosive offense around things might be different, but with a 5-1 start the 49ers look to be in perfect position to cruise into the playoffs.
