Player of the Game: Alex Smith
The 49ers defense is one of the hardest-hitting and stingiest units in the entire league. And their dominance continues against the Rams, forcing a pair of early fumbles and an interception in San Francisco's 30-16 win. Alex Smith really looked sharp, completing 23 of 36 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns to help San Francisco earn their 13th win of the season. What a difference a competent head coach can make.
