Colin Kaepernick fumble secures Rams win over 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The St. Louis Rams had a season-high eight sacks and forced a fumble by quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the goal line with two seconds remaining, preserving a 13-10 victory against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium on Sunday.

Facing third-and-goal from the Rams' 1, Kaepernick kept the ball on a quarterback sneak, but he fumbled, and the Rams recovered in the end zone.

Defensive end Robert Quinn had two of the Rams' season-high eight sacks, six of which came in the first half.

The 49ers (4-4) lost their second straight game and fell three games behind...
