The Houston Texans will face their second NFC West opponent in as many weeks, when they travel to Candlestick to take on the 49ers Sunday Night. Both teams are desperate for a win, have playoff aspirations, and with plenty of playmakers on both sides of the ball, this one has all the ingredients for an entertaining game.
The 49ers are right back on their feet at 2-2, while the Rams have dropped three in a row since winning the opener for the first time since 2006 and have trailed by double digits in every game. Five reasons why the 49ers defeated the Rams…
The 49ers dominated the Rams in St. Louis Thursday night, winning 35-11. Frank Gore ran for 153 yards, but John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew that performance obscures a bigger achievement.
After scoring 10 points in the past two games combined, the 49er offense finally woke up. Frank Gore and Anquan Boldin lead the way as San Francisco snapped their first losing streak under Jim Harbaugh, exacting revenge on a St. Louis team that had the 49ers number last season.
Colin Kaepernick threw two touchdown passes, Frank Gore had his first 100-yard game of the season and the San Francisco 49ers’ defense stepped up without some of their stars in a 35-11 rout over the St. Louis Rams on Thursday night.
Despite the multitude of issues surrounding the 49ers, they will still have the better team on the field Thursday Night, and if they play like they can, they will snap their first losing streak under Jim Harbaugh as well as their losing streak to the St. Louis Rams.
The San Francisco 49ers were embarrassed for the second week in a row, this time at home in a 27-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. “It looked like the fifth and sixth quarter of the Seattle game (last week),” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
San Francisco welcomes second year sensation Andrew Luck to Candlestick in this Week 3 match up. After leading the Colts to the playoffs as a rookie, Luck is back in his second year to show that he is the real deal. He has weapons around him on offense and a respectable defense, but there is no secret that he is the heart and soul of this team, and they key to their success week in and week out.
Frank Gore doesn’t see turning 30 as a bad thing, even if it’s the age when most NFL running backs start to decline. “I love it,” Gore said Thursday outside of the 49ers’ locker room.
Marcus Lattimore is an unwilling member in a fraternity of elite running backs who returned or are returning from gruesome and devastating knee injuries.
