It was again ugly, but another win nevertheless for the 49ers. The defense gets the game ball again as they are the reason San Francisco won their 3rd straight game.
The 49ers knew that this week was going to be a tough test. The Saints were on a roll and at home, but San Francisco played well in all phases and survived an overtime thriller.
San Francisco had a chance late, but couldn’t get the job done, losing to St. Louis. It was the same story after a 49er loss where most of the team played a role. This time around though it was no fault of the defense.
Colin Kaepernick threw for 343 yards and three touchdowns, helping the San Francisco 49ers erase an early 14-point deficit and beat the St. Louis Rams 31-17 on Monday night.
After Sundays loss Anquan Boldin criticized the referees and his comments have been blown out of proportion. Not only do those talking bad about Boldin not even see the entire quote, what Boldin did will help turn around the 49ers season.
All the problems that seemed to be facing the 49ers were worked out on the field. The offense looked fine, the defense stepped up and the result was a road win, that was far from a lock. f the 49ers can continue to improve, they will be back in the thick of things at the end of the season.
“I really don’t think there’s anything there,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
Wide receiver Anquan Boldin says he will be back with the San Francisco 49ers next season.
Big, bad football players don’t get intimidated. Not by noise, weather, statistics or hard hits. Tell that to the two defenses about to attempt to dominate the NFC championship game Sunday. Or to the offenses, for that matter.
Seattle and San Francisco have each won their home game against each other. With the rubber match taking place at CenturyLink Field, which game will be played? The blowout 29-3 Seattle win in Week 2 or the 19-17 gritty win by the 49ers in Week 14?
