The 49ers stumbled out of the gates on defense but have tightened things up and the offense has grabbed a pair of touchdowns to give the 49ers a 14-7 lead. Alex Smith put together a great scramble for a touchdown and Michael Crabtree took a quick hitch 28 yards to the house. Alex Smith is now one touchdown from matching his career high 18 from 2009 and also surpassed 3,000 yards for the first time in his career.
The defense got off to a slow start, but after a monster 66-yard Andy Lee punt, the defense forced a three and out with a big sack. On the next Rams possession, Tarell Brown picked off an ill-conceived Jerious Norwood pass to QB Kellen Clemens. It was a slow developing play and Brown had no problem hauling in the interception. The 49ers are tightening things up and will hopefully put this thing away sooner rather than later.
