The Rams needed something — anything — good to happen after back-to-back interceptions on their first two possessions. They finally put it together on their third drive.
Los Angeles went 75 yards in seven plays, with Matthew Stafford‘s 10-yard touchdown pass to tight end Tyler Higbee cutting the 49ers’ lead in half. San Francisco leads 14-7 off two Jimmie Ward interceptions of Stafford, one of which he returned 27 yards for a touchdown after Higbee bobbled the pass.
Stafford is now 8-of-12 for 89 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.
