49ers vs. Rams: San Francisco's Biggest Winners and Losers from Week 13

The San Francisco 49ers fell to the St. Louis Rams 16-13 in overtime on Sunday, which leaves Jim Harbaugh and company at 8-3-1. St. Louis has five wins, after only securing two in 2011. 

In what was expected to be an all-out dog fight, both teams didn't disappoint. A low-scoring affair from the start, the Rams put all their chips in with rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein

On the strength of Zuerlein's leg, the Rams booted a 54-yard field goal to seal the win over a stunned 49ers squad. 

What went wrong? Many expected a 49ers win over a young and inexperienced Rams squad. However, many fans and even analysts disregarded two important factors: 

1) The Rams were at home

2) The recent history between the two clubs 

While we expected a physical matchup, it seemed like the Niners would make the necessary adjustments. That wasn't the case as the 49ers looked undisciplined and at times, gassed. 

Things didn't go as planned for the 49ers, but with a Seattle Seahawks win on Sunday, the time to panic is over because they must recover quickly. However, in the meantime, let's explore what went wrong for the Niners on Sunday. 

Without further ado, here are the winners and losers in the 49ers' overtime loss to the St. Louis Rams.
