12:09 pm
levi stadium south as 2 of 3 fans at the ballpark. and they got even louder once george kittle score making it 17 to 7 heading into the 4th quarter. all the niners had to do was play defense even if they had that rate points, they would be planning for the super bowl and then towards the end of the game, they had a chance to slam the door on the rams season. there was an interception opportunity, but check was key tart. he will never have an easier chance to come up with interception. but instead he drops the ball. the rams drive down the continue to put points on the board at one point, getting it to 20 to 17 and then jimmy g could have become a legend among the niners with ronnie lott, joe montana, steve young, dwight clark by driving down the field, which what he did in week 18 to bring them to overtime or just win the game altogether. but instead he throws an interception which could be his last throw in her
