The San Francisco 49ers took an early 3-0 lead on the St. Louis Rams, thanks to a field goal that was 5 yards closer than initially expected. Rams linebacker Daren Bates was trying to time the kick and leap over the snapper on the play. Unfortunately for Bates, he was a little early, and ended up getting called offsides. His vertical was quite impressive, but it was for naught. It was basically a free play as the 49ers were attempting a 38-yard field goal on 4th and 10. They got 5 yards, kicked the field goal, and took the lead.
Great vertical, Daren.
