San Francisco 49ers v Jacksonville Jaguars

49ers Have Top Ground Game After Early Struggles

From the play up front of a physical line, to the lead blocking of fullback Bruce Miller, to the spirited running of halfback Frank Gore, the ground game has carried a San Francisco offense that ranks No. 1 in the NFL in rushing but is last in the league in passing.

49ers Take Care Of Business, Blow Out Toothless Jaguars

After beating up on the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, there is not a NFL team in a better position than the San Francisco 49ers. They have won 5 straight, have a week off to rest up, continue to get better on the field, and with several players getting over lingering injures, the 49ers figure to be even better the next time they hit the field.

San Francisco And Tennessee Are Two Teams Heading In Opposite Directions

The 49ers will go on the road this week to take on a Tennessee Titan team that is looking to save their season. The Titans are on a losing streak, but a very talented and dangerous team with their playoff chances still alive. Despite winning their past 3 the 49ers need a win just as badly as the Titans, and the winner of this game will have to earn it.

Analysis: 49ers Must Commit To Running Game

It makes sense for the 49ers offense to make some changes after replacing Alex Smith, this not yet. Colin Kaepernick is a completely different player with a different skill set, but with questions surrounding the passing game, the running game, for now, is still the team’s bread and butter. With a full stable of backs, the coaches need to commit to the run, and worry about the passing game when they get back all their pieces.
