“No one is going to go around crying or panicking or anything like that,” Gonzalez said. “We’re a good team. Our confidence hasn’t changed.”
49ERS 24, RAMS 24
The previous NFL tie was between Philadelphia and Cincinnati, 13-13 in 2008. San Francisco played its first tie since 1986.
“It just feels like it’s unfinished business,” San Francisco cornerback Tarell Brown said.
“I think anyone would like to keep playing. I really don’t know what good a tie does,” Bradford said. “It’s frustrating when you play a game and you put so much into it during the week and during the course of it, today five quarters, you’d like to come away with either a win or a loss.”
TEXANS 13, BEARS 6
At Chicago, the Texans improved the AFC’s best record to 8-1, equaling Atlanta’s mark in the NFC, as well, by beating another league power.
