Not even five quarters of football could separate the 49ers and the St. Louis Rams at Candlestick Park in Week 10. The two NFC West foes battled through the entire overtime period but ended in a 24-24 tie, leaving for some mixed emotions on both sides.
But the two teams don’t have to wait long to settle things, as they’re slated for a Sunday showdown at the Edward Jones Dome.
“This is like the sixth quarter now,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher told reporters on a Wednesday conference call.

The development of defenses in the NFC West has been well-documented this season. But listening to St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher, it’s the complex offense which sets the first-place 49ers apart from the other three teams in the division.
In his Wednesday conference call with Bay Area reporters, Fisher heaped praised upon the creative scheme forged by offensive coordinator Greg Roman, Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers staff.
“I can’t remember having to prepare for an offense that was so well-coached and so diversified in the run game and so talented,” Fisher said. “Then you add the multiplicity of the passing game and (Alex Smith’s) decision-making ability, it’s no surprise to me now that we’ve looked at them closely that they were able to accomplish what they did last year and what’s ahead of them this year.”
