The end zone: Last week, the Niners were held to three field goals by Miami after putting together four drives of 10 or more plays and controlling the ball for more than 38 minutes.

Fan feedback

   Should the Niners keep 
  Mike Singletary at the helm? Should the 
  Rams keep Jim Haslett?

A familiar foe: Against his old team in Week 11, Isaac Bruce had just one catch for 20 yards. Since that game he's averaged 83 yards per game and caught two touchdown passes.

Crafty defense: Veteran Rams defensive back Jason Craft had two sacks against the Niners in Week 11. Last week against the Dolphins, he collected a sack, forced fumble and two fumble recoveries. He'll make things difficult for the Niners' receiving corps, which might be without Arnez Battle for another week.
