49ers vs. Rams video recap: Notable statistics

We take a video look at the 49ers 16-13 loss to the Rams, and a look at some notable statistics from the game.

I put together a quick bit of video following the game, and as would be expected, it focuses on the cluster-[site decorum] that was the 49ers 16-13 loss to the Rams. Give it a view when you get a minute.

While the loss is a tough one, there were some notable numbers worth at least pointing out. Aldon Smith was the most notable performer on the day as his one sack got him to 17.5 on the season and 31.5 for his career. That ties Fred Dean's 49ers single season franchise record, and surpasses Reggie White's record for most sacks through two seasons.

Frank Gore's rushing touchdown was No. 49, which leaves him one rushing touchdown behind Joe Perry and Roger Craig. He is also closing in on Joe Perry for the franchise rushing record when you account for pre-NFL years. He is 93 yards back of Perry for that mark. Not too shabby.
