This is the live blog for the third quarter of the 49ers’ Week 6 road game against the Rams. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from my living room.
7:05 Gore gains eight yards the middle on second and five. Next play, Kaepernick completes a long pass down the left sideline to Gore. Jeff Fisher is challenging the ruling that it was a catch.
7:08 The officials reverse their ruling. Gore’s fingers landed out of bounds before his knee landed in bounds. Second and 10 from the 49ers’ 32.
7:09 Kaepernick scrambles to the left for 23 yards.
7:13 Kaepernick completes a 16-yard pass to Boldin on third-and-12. First and 10 from the Rams’ 20.
7:19 On third and 1 from the 11, Kaepernick scrambles to his left and throws off his back foot to Boldin in the end zone for a touchdown. 17-14 Niners.
7:20 Touchback. Rams start at their 20.
7:28 The Rams go three and out. Patrick Willis is out for the rest of the game with a toe injury.

7:32 Chris Cook knocks away a pass on third-and-5 from the Rams’ 28 and the Rams punt. Ellington is tackled at the 49ers’ 22.
7:33 The Rams gave it their best shot, but the inexperience and lack of talent has caught up with them.
7:37 Gore gains 7 yards on second and 13. Third and 6. Mike Iupati is injured. Jimmie Ward has a quad injury and he’s questionable.
7:40 Kaepernick completes an 11-yard pass to Boldin on third and six.
7:41 On second and 8 from the 32, Kaepernick hits a wide open Crabtree for a touchdown. A triple move — post, corner, post. 24-14 Niners.
