San Francisco was up 3-0 before A.J. Feeley was sacked by Ray McDonald and lost the football. The 49ers recovered deep in Rams territory, but Frank Gore couldn't punch it in the end zone. David Akers knocked in a chip shot field goal to put San Francisco up 6-0.
Alex Smith directed a nice drive before the end of the half, rushing for eight yards, throwing two nice passes to Kendall Hunter for 15 yards and Michael Crabtree for 10 yards, and a Frank Gore 20 yard rush helped set up another Akers field goal to put San Francisco up two scores before halftime.
