Rams vs. 49ers score update: Overtime in the cards after wild 4th quarter

Thearon W. Henderson

The St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers are on their way to overtime after two late lead changes came to nothing.

The St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers each seemed to swing the momentum permanently in their favor with minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, but a big run from Frank Gore, a beautiful comeback drive from Sam Bradford, and a strong drive downfield from Colin Kaepernick all added up to a 24-24 tie and overtime in Candlestick Park. The Rams won the toss and elected—obviously—to receive.

The new NFL overtime rules mean that the Rams can score a touchdown on their first drive and end the game, but if they can only get a field goal from Greg Zuerlein the 49ers will get the chance to tie it up or win it themselves. It'll be up to Sam Bradford and Steven Jackson to put together one last impressive late-game drive—and keep the ball out of Frank Gore's hands, while they're at it.

Sam Bradford exits regulation 19-for-28 with 201 yards and two touchdowns; Danny Amendola has nine receptions for 87 yards, while Steven Jackson has a season-high 24 carries for 86 yards and a touchdown, just his second of the season.
