The San Francisco 49ers shut out the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium, winning by a score of 34-0.
The score could have been a lot more lopsided, believe it or not, as the 49ers left a few opportunities out on the field in the passing game.
As it was, the 49ers didn't need much help from their passing attack, as nine players ran the ball 44 times for 245 yards and three touchdowns.
Surprisingly, Colin Kaepernick was the spark plug for the 49ers, scoring the game's opening touchdown on a seven-yard off-tackle scamper to the left side. He had 50 yards rushing on the day.
Mark Sanchez had a miserable outing, completing just 13-of-29 passes for 103 yards with one interception and a lost fumble.
Shonn Greene, Bilal Powell and Tim Tebow only managed 45 yards on 17 carries—their longest run being just five yards.
Aldon Smith tallied two sacks, Ahmad Brooks chipped in with another, Patrick Willis intercepted Sanchez and Carlos Rodgers took a Santonio Holmes fumble back for a touchdown, as the 49ers defense had their way with the Jets, forcing four turnovers.
The 49ers improve to 3-1 and travel home to host the Buffalo Bills after two road games. Meanwhile, the Jets will prepare to host the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football in Week 5.
