49ers

The 49ers set an NFL season milestone with their first touchdown drive in Monday night's Week 10 clash with the Los Angeles Rams.

 The 11-minute, 18-play drive culminated with a Jimmy Garoppolo touchdown pass to George Kittle.

The 49ers' drive began after a Matthew Stafford deep pass was intercepted by Jimmie Ward.

In a divisional game the 49ers desperately need to win, a drive consuming nearly an entire quarter that results in a touchdown is just about as good as you could draw it up.
