Rams head coach Mike Martz was none too pleased with San Francisco’s early 7-0 lead. He said, “There’s no excuse” for Cedric Wilson’s 95 yard opening kick off return for a touchdown. The 49ers went on to crush the Rams 30-10 in San Francisco. Everything seemed to be in St. Louis’ favor coming into the game. Jeff Garcia was out with a sprained ankle, but 49er back up quarterback Tim Rattay was 19-29 for 236 yards and three touchdowns. Two of those touchdowns came in the first half as San Francisco took a 24-3 lead into the locker room. The two teams traded touchdowns in the second half for an uneventful final thirty minutes. Rams quarterback Marc Bulger threw for 378 yards on the day, but 181 of those came in the fourth quarter. He was picked off twice and fumbled once. Torry Holt caught the ball eleven times for 200 yards and grabbed the Rams only touchdown. Arlen Harris accounted for all nine of the Rams rushing yards. St. Louis 5-3 and trail the Seahawks by a game in the NFC West.
