49ers Going for .500

By  | 

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - In no way does 49ers coach Mike Singletary consider Sunday's game at St. Louis a gimmee. Even if San Francisco already routed the struggling Rams 35-0 in the teams' first meeting this season nearly three months ago.

Yet the Niners should feel good about their chances against 1-14 St. Louis. A win could do so much for San Francisco (7-8) as it heads into the offseason with yet another missed trip to the playoffs. It's been since 2002 that the 49ers were last in the postseason. A victory Sunday would not only end a franchise-worst stretch of six straight losing seasons but also snap a six-game road losing streak since the team won its season opener at reigning NFC champion Arizona back on Sept. 13.
