49ers finish nightmare season with win against Rams

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Phil Dawson kicked a 23-yard field goal 11:33 into overtime for his fourth of the game, and the San Francisco 49ers held off the St. Louis Rams 19-16 on Sunday in what might have been Jim Tomsula’s last game as coach.

Dawson came through after Greg Zuerlein’s 48-yard field goal attempt was blocked by Dontae Johnson, giving San Francisco the ball back with 4:49 to play.

Blaine Gabbert passed for 354 yards and a 33-yard touchdown for the 49ers (5-11), who avoided their worst finish since 4-12 in 2005.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher finished 7-9 for his fourth straight losing season running the team.
