The 49ers had not given up on this game. After receiving the kickoff that was the result of the Chargers touchdown, which put them ahead 31-0, Alex Smith hit Tedd Ginn for 9 yards and then Josh Morgan for a 19. The two completions put them out to the Chargers 44 yard line. This is where the drive stalled.
The Niners found themselves in a 4th and 11 situation and they went for it. Alex Smith was picked off. The Chargers then inserted some of their back-ups, including QB Billy Volek. Volek was able to lead them to a first down and they then kicked a 39 yard field goal to make it 34-0. There is currently just over four minutes left and the 49ers have just cracked the scoreboard.
Brian Westbrook goes up the gut for a two yard touchdown run. It is now 34-7 with 4:26 until this one is over.
