This time it was the passing game that set up the run and led to a 45-3 win over the visiting Buffalo Bills. Alex Smith finished with over 300 yards passing while the defense played another impressive game. With momentum on their side, the 49ers will take on the New York Giants next week in the biggest game of the year for San Francisco.
Alex Smith threw for a season-high 303 yards and three touchdowns and the San Francisco 49ers amassed a franchise-record 621 yards in blowing by the Buffalo Bills 45-3 on Sunday.
The 3-1 49ers meet the 2-2 Buffalo Bills at Candlestick Park Sunday.
The Buffalo Bills head into Sunday’s game against the 49ers as underdogs. Buffalo had a rough end to last year and has had an up-and-down start to this year. For a team that has had problems with turnovers and no real way to move the ball other then on the ground, the Bills will have quite a challenge to beat San Francisco.
The news this week around 49er camp is the naming of Patrick WIllis as NFC Defensive Player of the Week. However, he has had to share the headlines with Brandon Jacobs, who has announced that he is ready to get back on the field.
The 49ers will have to remain humble as they try to improve on the success that they had last year. To avoid a similar let down to the performance they had against Minnesota Vikings, the team will have to stay humble and motivated. To help in their motivation is their new weight room, so the Bills will face a team that certainly hit the weights in preparation for them.

A cross-country flight and a day to reflect did little to ease the pain of a memorable collapse by the Oakland Raiders defense.
The Dallas Cowboys rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the 49ers in overtime 27-24 at Candlestick Sunday. Did 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh make the right call in keeping the field goal points and a ten point lead?
There might have been a time in recent memory when these losses could be justified as “moral victories” (God, I hate that expression). The simple truth is that the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers blew it. Both should be 2-0, both are 1-1. Oakland blew a 21-3 halftime lead while their Bay Area counterparts blew a 10-point 4th quarter lead.
