Rams vs. 49ers score update: Overtime (again!) as Greg Zuerlein ties things at 13

Greg Zuerlein and the St. Louis Rams tied their second consecutive game with the San Francisco 49ers, sending things into overtime.

The St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers will take to overtime once again in Week 13, with Greg Zuerlein and the Rams tying the score at 13 after a crazy defensive touchdown. Colin Kaepernick's mistakes allowed the Rams back into the game, and his legs nearly ended the game shortly afterward, but Sam Bradford and company were able to put a scoring drive together just in time; they'll get the ball after winning the coin toss in overtime. Up next: The Rams try not to tie the 49ers for the second time in a month.

Bradford led a not-especially-efficient but very daring fourth-quarter drive, running up the middle for two first downs before running out of steam just past midfield. But his short passes in the last minute got the Rams from world-record-field-goal position to really-long-field-goal-position, and at that distance they have an in-built advantage.

That's Greg Zuerlein, who needed to make a 53-yarder to tie the game. His field goal was perfect, and the Rams and the 49ers reconvened at midfield to start the overtime period. It's been 50 years since two teams tied twice in the same season—the Rams, fortunately or unfortunately, are in a position to do just that against the NFC West's best team.
