Lions 19 vs. 49ers 27: Final Report Cards, Players Grades for San Francisco
Let the disagreements begin!

The 49ers never dominated the Lions, but they just did everything a little bit better throughout the course of three hours and it added up at the end to a neat, efficient, incident-free 27-19 win over the Lions in San Francisco's home opener at Candlestick Park.

The Niners offense wasn't always smooth, but they saved their best drive of the game for last, converting three 3rd-and-longs on passes from Alex Smith to Michael Crabtree, and finished off the drive on Smith's second touchdown pass of the night to Vernon Davis.

The Lions never found the end zone until less than two minutes were left in the game, and once 49ers punt returner Kyle Williams came up with the on side kick, the game was over.
