ST. LOUIS - It was the kind of simple catch Dante Hall has made many times, camped under a punt, waiting to make the catch.

This time, late in the fourth quarter, he dropped it. Marcus Hudson recovered for San Francisco, setting up the winning field goal in the 49ers' win over St. Louis.

The Rams' Jeff Wilkins missed a 56-yard field goal try with 59 seconds to play, the ball falling about a yard short of the goal post.

The 49ers won despite struggling offensively most of the game. St. Louis had 392 total yards to 186 for San Francisco. Alex Smith was 11-for-17 for 126 yards. Frank Gore scored two touchdowns and gained 81 yards on 20 carries, most of those coming on a play that helped turn the game around late in the third quarter.
