“But even after all that, and the Rams taking a 20-17 lead, San Francisco got one last chance, with 1:46 on the clock and one timeout.

“I just want to say congrats to the Rams obviously, and I want to do address my hit on Stafford early in the game after Jimmie [Ward]’s interception,” Warner said. “You guys have watched me for a long time, never doing anything out of malicious intent. I watched the video, it looks bad
