The San Francisco 49ers rebounded from a lackluster effort against the Minnesota Vikings to blank the New York Jets, 34-0. The victory moves the 49ers to 3-1, one game behind the undefeated Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West.

The NFC West looks to be the trendy pick as the league's toughest division. The four teams in the division, Arizona, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle have a combined record of 11-5, the best in the NFL.

The teams in the NFC West are all on the upswing and have some of the toughest defenses in the game. The 49ers must come ready to play and not have any more letdowns, like we saw two weeks ago in Minnesota.

After four games, the 49ers have displayed some excellent football, but have also had some ugly moments. Let's take a closer look at each positional unit on the team and assess their level of play. I will also provide a first-quarter grade for each group.
