SAN FRANCISCO (CBS Sports) — Craig Dahl, now with the San Francisco 49ers, said the team was tipping plays last season.

The 49ers signed Dahl, a former St. Louis Rams safety, to help replace Dashon Goldson after they lost him to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency.

Dahl was part of a Rams team that gave the 49ers all they could handle last season.

In Week 10, St. Louis and San Francisco played to a 24-24 tie, and three weeks later, the Rams beat the 49ers 16-13. So why were the Rams, who went 6-8 in their 14 other regular-season games, so good against the NFC’s Super Bowl representative?

Dahl provided some answers Wednesday.

“We had a few tips off of film that we were able to differentiate between run and pass early,” Dahl said. “So that kind of gave us an added benefit on defense.
