Sunday the 49ers dismantled the Buffalo Bills, defeating them by a score of 45-3. San Francisco became the first team in NFL history with 300 yards passing and 300 yards rushing. “Very cool,” Smith said. “When you think of the 49ers, you think of great offense.”
Smith threw for a season-high 303 yards, a mark he has only reached three times in his career and tossed three touchdowns as well. In additional to Smith’s great game, Frank Gore scampered for 106 yards and a score. Michael Crabtree had seven receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown and Vernon Davis also hauled in seven passes for 106 yards.
The 49ers set a new franchise record with 621 yards of total offense. It’s also the most total yards of offense the Bills have ever allowed in a game. Ironically, the previous franchise record for the 49ers came against the Bills in San Francisco in 1992. And that was also the most the Bills had ever allowed. (ESPN Stats and Info)
“I’m not a big statistical guy, don’t get caught up in it,” 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman said. “But at the same time, just in the normal course of events to be able to throw up that kind of production, obviously we’re doing something right.”
San Francisco (4-1) now pulls into a tie with Arizona for the NFC West lead and will take on the defending Super Bowl Champs, the New York Giants, this Sunday.
