San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – The San Francisco 49ers rode an
efficient performance from Colin Kaepernick and a stifling defensive display
to a 23-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams at Candlestick Park.

Kaepernick amassed 275 yards and a touchdown while completing 19-of-28 passes
without a turnover, while the 49ers (8-4) held the Rams out of the end zone
until Kellen Clemens tossed a garbage-time touchdown pass to Brian Quick in
the game’s final minute.

Anquan Boldin added nine catches for 98 yards in a win that put the defending
NFC-champion 49ers a game ahead of the field for the conference’s final wild
card berth, with Vernon Davis contributing 82 yards and a touchdown on four
receptions.

Facing constant pressure throughout the afternoon, Clemens hit on just 19-
of-37 throws for 218 yards — much of which came after the outcome was already
decided — and was intercepted once. Zac Stacy managed 72 yards on 19 carries
as St. Louis (5-8) had a two-game win streak halted.
