The Rams started the game with a rapid pace as quarterback Austin Davis moved them downfield with a variety of plays, and he handed the ball off to Benny Cunningham on the goalline to run in for the one-yard score.
Jeff Fisher's side continued to thrive on offense as Tre Mason broke upfield on a huge run, which allowed Davis to use a play-action pass to foul the 49ers defense and hit Lance Kendricks in the endzone for a 22-yard touchdown.
San Francisco got themselves on the board in the second quarter when they took advantage of a partially blocked punt which set them up inside the Rams' half. The offense couldn't score seven, but Phil Dawson nailed a 54-yard field goal through the posts.
Seconds before the break, the 49ers dragged themselves right back into the match when Colin Kaepernick hit Brandon Lloyd on a deep go route and the receiver ran all the way in for an 80-yard touchdown.
