The 49ers cruised this past week to a 34-0 win over the New York Jets.  The niners sported a solid run game and a shut down defense in their rout of the Jets.  Coming off of a loss to the Vikings the previous week, the 49ers came out with something to prove.  “For sure, the whole week there was more of an edge; it was just a bad taste in your mouth,” Alex Smith said. “I don’t think that goes away in one day. We wanted to be 3-1 and got it done.”

The 49ers rushed for a total of 245  yards against the Jets on Sunday.  Both Gore and Hunter had good games, Gore rushing for 62 yards and a score and Hunter rushed for 56 and a score as well.  Alex Smith completed 12/21 passes 143 yards and continued his steady play this season.  Manningham had 3 receptions for 47 yards on 5 targets.

However, the defense and special teams is what stole the show on Sunday.  The defense had an interception and three fumble recoveries, and special teams blocked a punt to set up the final touchdown.  Carlos Rogers also returned one of the fumbles for a 51 yard touchdown.

Defensive end Aldon Smith called it a statement win.  “Yeah, that’s right,” he said. “After the last game, some people were questioning us and we knew what we were capable of. We played all together as a unit and proved what we are as a defense.”  The niners takes on Buffalo at home this week.
