San Francisco 49ers: Grading the Week 2 Win

Blast! We didn't get any handshake drams in Jim vs. Jim: Round II. Don't pretend you weren't looking for it, too.

The real story in the 49ers most recent victory against the Lions was, again, how thoroughly dominant all three units were in the game. Despite the final score of 27-19, the Lions were relegated to field goals until the middle of the fourth quarter.

Detroit's only really good drive was that touchdown drive, and it was an outlier. Matthew Stafford mostly looked lost against the 49ers defense, Calvin Johnson was hardly a factor, and the running game never got going (as usual).

On the flip side, Alex Smith had another impressive performance, Vernon Davis hauled in touchdowns number two and three, and the run game was shredding the "vaunted" front seven of the Lions.

So how does this Week 2 win grade out? Read on.
