The Rams put themselves in position to move back into a tie for first place in the NFC West by beating the 49ers 16-6 at the Dome Sunday. They now trail the Seahawks, who play the Cowboys Monday night, by a half-game. A Dallas win will force the tie once again in the West. The Rams win was sparked, in large part by, a couple of second-string players. Steven Jackson filled in for Marshall Faulk—he has a bruised knee—and rushed for 119 yards on 26 carries. Quarterback Marc Bulger was knocked out of the game in the first quarter with a sprained shoulder. Chris Chandler filled in and went 18-of-27 for 216 yards a touchdown and an interception. His 22-yard pass to Torry Holt in the second quarter marked the Rams only trip to the end zone. Holt caught 10 passes for 160 yards. Jeff Wilkins hit a 29-yard field goals and two from 52 yards out. After the game head coach Mike Martz addressed Bulger’s injury saying that Bulger will be back, but he wasn’t sure how long he’d be out.
