49ers pitch impressive shutout over Rams

BY foxsports • October 5, 2009

Coach Mike Singletary delivered another one of his motivational halftime speeches and the San Francisco 49ers woke up in a hurry.

And in all phases, no less.

"It was just a matter of reminding them what was at stake," Singletary said.

Like first place in the NFC West.

Tight end Vernon Davis caught a 13-yard pass for his third touchdown in two weeks, Patrick Willis returned an interception 23 yards for a score and the 49ers overcame the absence of star running back Frank Gore with a 35-0 rout of the winless St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
