Another Long Day; 9’ers Lose 13-9 to Rams at Home

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Bryan Gilmore (81) misses a catch in front of St. Louis Rams cornerback Tye Hill (26) near the end zone in the fourth quarter of their NFL football game in San Francisco, Sunday, Nov. 18, 2007. The Rams defeated the 49ers 13-9.

The 49’ers slid into their longest losing streak since 1999, with a 13-9 loss to the St. Louis Rams at Monster Park Sunday afternoon.   Quarterback Trent Dilfer threw for 231 yards with a pair of interceptions for the Niners.  After struggling early, San Francisco drove 68 yards in the final 1:28, only to have the drive stalled when Dilfer’s pass was intercepted at the goal line with three seconds to play. Joe Nedney kicked three field goals for the Niners’ only scores.  San Francisco has now lost 8 straight to fall to 2-8 on the season.  Even though Rams’ quarterback Marc Bulger was sacked six times, he still threw for 155 yards and an early touchdown. Steven Jackson carried the ball 23 times for 92 yards for St. Louis, which has won back-to-back games after beginning the season with eight straight losses.
