In this edition of the NFC West Report, 49ers.com recaps Week 12's action within the division.

St. Louis Rams

Decision: 42-21 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Offense: Wideout Tavon Austin's 65-yard rushing touchdown, the longest Rams scoring run since Marshall Faulk's 70-yard scamper in 2001, springboarded a 21-point third quarter.

Defense: Defensive end Robert Quinn earned a sack, strip and 31-yard touchdown return just before the two-minute warning.

Stock up: Backup rookie running back Benny Cunningham (109 yards on 13 carries) joined fellow first-year pro Zac Stacey in St. Louis' impressive backfield. 

Stat: With Stacey and Cunningham forming quite the one-two punch on the ground and Austin arriving in the passing game, rookies have scored 14 of the team's 30 touchdowns this season, an NFL high.

Quote: "We’ve just been playing great all-around," offensive tackle Jake Long told StLouisRams.com. "Having great team wins, finishing games, really working hard in practice, and that’s been carrying over into games."
