The Rams wore retro jerseys from their 1999 championship season, featuring yellow numbers and striping, and marked the franchise's 75th anniversary. Several former players were introduced at halftime with fan favorites who played in St. Louis such as Isaac Bruce and Todd Lyght getting the strongest ovations.
NOTES: 49ers wide receiver Mario Manningham (shoulder) did not return after getting hurt in the fourth quarter. Harbaugh said the team "won't know right away" about the severity of the injury. ... Aldon Smith's sack late in the first half gave him an NFL-best 31½ in his first two seasons, a half-sack better than Reggie White in 1985-96. ... Hekker had a season-high nine punts for a 43.1-yard average and 42.4-yard net, often getting a favorable roll on directional efforts that looked ugly.
