San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - David Akers and Greg Zuerlein both missed
field goals in overtime and the San Francisco 49ers and the St. Louis Rams
played to a 24-24 tie.
It was the NFL's first tie since Nov. 16, 2008 when the Philadelphia Eagles
and Cincinnati Bengals finished their contest knotted at 13-13.
Akers, who sent the game into overtime with a 33-yard field goal with three
seconds remaining in regulation, sailed his kick wide left from 41 yards out
midway through the extra session.
Zuerlein initially nailed a 53-yard attempt on St. Louis' ensuing series, but
a delay of game penalty was called. The rookie kicker, who split the uprights
from 60 yards away earlier in the year, missed to the right from 58 yards out.
