With the Bulls winning these past few days it feels even better to announce that my 49ers have won a good game in overtime with a nicely placed field goal by Joe Nedney. I wasn't able to watch the game but from what I saw on ESPN.com and read on UPI it was definitely a good game. Here is UPI's coverage of the game -
NFL: San Francisco 23, St. Louis 20 (OT)
SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) -- Joe Nedney kicked a 29-yard field goal 9:39 into overtime Sunday, letting the San Francisco 49ers edge St. Louis 23-20.
The 49ers had taken a three-point lead on a 16-yard touchdown pass from Troy Smith to Michael Crabtree with 2:10 left in the fourth quarter, but Rams kicker Josh Brown forced an overtime when he hit a 33-yard field goal as time expired.
Smith tossed for a career-best 356 yards and a touchdown, going 17-of-28, and Frank Gore ran for 87 yards and a score on 22 carries for San Francisco (3-6).
The Rams, meanwhile, lost for the second time in three games.
Sam Bradford finished the game with 251 yards and one touchdown, and Steven Jackson gained 81 yards on 20 carries with a score for St. Louis (4-5).
