Officials ruled that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had lost a fumble before crossing the goal line, a call that wasn’t overturned after a replay review and sealed the 49ers’ 13-10 loss to the Rams.
An hour passed after the defeat by the time Kaepernick finally met with the media, and he didn’t waste any more time sharing his thoughts on the fateful play, Cam Inman of Bayareanewsgroup reports.
“I know I crossed the line,” Kaepernick said. “I did bobble the snap, but regardless. … I was looking in the end zone.”
Kaepernick appeared to initially lose the football when center Marcus Martin was pushed back into him. Kaepernick recovered, went low and apparently the ball slipped from his gloved, left hand as he reached for the goal line.
