Gameday: 49ers fumble NFC West division to Rams

Dec 26, 2010 at 1:11 PM--


An Alex Smith fumble in the fourth quarter ends the San Francisco 49ers' playoff hopes as they fall to the division rival St. Louis Rams by the score of 17-25.

Alex Smith replaced a struggling Troy Smith completing 7 of 10 passes for no touchdowns. Troy Smith was 7 of 19 for 153 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

The loss ends the 49ers' playoff hopes. The 49ers have not made the playoffs since 2002. The loss may have also sealed head coach Mike Singletary's fate. It would be tough to believe that after such a poor season filled with bad preparation and play calling, Singletary would be kept on staff.

Next Sunday, the 49ers will host the Arizona Cardinals in their season finale at Candlestick Park.
