The San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams played the NFL's first tie game in four years Sunday as kickers from both teams missed overtime field goals to end the game 24-24. Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein made a 53-yard field goal in overtime, but the Rams were penalized 5 yards for delay of game.  From 58 yards, Zuerlein missed wide right with 2:42 left in OT. 49ers kicker David Akers missed wide left on a 41-yard attempt that could have won it.   "I don't know what to make of this," Willis said. "We have one of the best kickers in the game, and it came down to him at the end and he misses it. That tells you right there something wasn't right." The last NFL tie was in 2008 between Philadelphia and Cincinnati, 13-13. 49ers quarterback Alex Smith left the game in the second quarter with a concussion.  He was hit by linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar hard in the back of the neck, then was sacked three plays later, and smacked hard on a fourth-and-1 quarterback keeper.   Smith went 7 for 8 for 72 yards and a touchdown.   Colin Kaepernick took over for smith, he went 11 of 17 for 117 yards.  Frank Gore rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford went 26 of 39 for 275 yards and a touchdown while running back Steven Jackson ran for 101 yards and a touchdown.
