San Francisco 49ers vs. Buffalo Bills: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
49ers crushed the Bills, 45-3 at Candlestick Park
The home team San Francisco 49ers improved to 4-1 today, tying for first in the NFC West, with an absolute mauling of the visiting Buffalo Bills. The 49ers had a number of players who reached career milestones, as the team as a whole set marks that even the team of the 80's had not reached.
This is the second consecutive blowout win the 49ers have put together since their Week 3 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
The team looked brilliant in all aspects. Whether it was running the ball, passing the ball, defense or special teams -- the Niners were rockin' n' rollin'. It was a beautiful team win that, if nothing else, will be a huge confidence booster going forward.
The Niners may have catapulted themselves to No. 1 in the Power Rankings come Tuesday.
49ers gained 621 yards against Bills, most ever gained by SF and allowed by BUF; previous mark for both teams was 598, set in 1992 meeting.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) October 7, 2012
That's the ball game!
San Francisco with a huge, huge win! A 45-3 final score, where the Niners displayed utter dominance for 4 quarters of football. The Niners hammed the Bills physically and strategically. The 49ers set all sorts of team and individual milestones in their second consecutive blowout win.
The 49ers defeated the Jets easily in Week 4, pummeled the Bills today in Week 5 and will face the Giants in Week 6. San Francisco has an opportunity to sweep the state of New York in three straight games.
This win said way more about the 49ers than it did the Bills.
ANTHONY DIXON TOUCHDOWN!
49ers running back Anthony Dixon refused to be denied and pounded it in for another score. IT IS NOW 45-3, San Francisco on top!
49ers just surpassed their team records for yards in a game.The old record was 598 in a loss against the Bills in 1992— Kevin Lynch (@klynch49) October 7, 2012
Bills are 1st team to allow 550+ yards of offense in consecutive weeks since 1950 New York Yanks.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) October 7, 2012
The Niners today, did what they NEVER did w/Joe Montana nor Steve Young: 300 yd passer, 100 yd runner and 2 100 yd receivers in same game— trey wingo (@wingoz) October 7, 2012
Beyond Montana, Beyond Young...

It's hard to imagine...
A single team that wants to see the 49ers at this point. They are on a tear right now, making other PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL TEAMS look amateur. They have depth, balance, speed, explosiveness and they are sound fundamentally. Furthermore, they are built for the playoffs.
Teams around the NFL will be cautious of San Francisco.
7:35 remaining in the 4th quarter...
The Bills continued throwing but it proved to be futile. The Niners backup defenders played to their assignments and forced Buffalo to kick the ball away once more. This will allow for some valuable reps for Colin Kaepernick.
49ers will try to go 3-0 against the state of New York next week. That will be a fun one!— Samuel Lam(@SamuelYLam) October 7, 2012
9:00 remaining in the 4th quarter...
San Francisco has been incorporating their depth. It's backups across the board for the 49ers, on offense and defense. This game rapidly turned into a preseason match-up once Kaepernick scored that last touchdown.
Colin Kaepernick, operating out of that WildKap formation, fluidly hit his running lane and found the end zone to pile on the points. The 49ers have a 35-point lead on the Bills.
Smith done, Kaepernick in
It looks like Kaepernick's presence may be more permanent. Smith is on the sideline with his baseball cap on.
The 49ers are driving on the Bills again, continuing with the creative play-calling backed by an efficient running attack. Smith rolled out and took the QB keeper for a big gain down the left sideline, good for another first down. As time winds down in the 4th, we might be likely to see more Colin Kaepernick.
But the 49ers are playing like they want to put up 40 points before this one is over.
49ers rec: Michael Crabtree 113, Vernon Davis 106. First time 49ers had two with 100-yd rec since these two did it 10/10 vs. St.L.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) October 7, 2012
They said he worked on his game. It's showing today...
Fitzpatrick's struggles continue...
13:26 remaining in the game and Fitzpatrick got away with a near-interception to NaVorro Bowman. The 49ers All-Pro inside linebacker just missed his second pick of the season. The Bills offense eventually stalled and they are forced to punt yet again.
Alex Smith looks like a different QB in his 2nd yr in Jim Harbaugh's offense. 3TD passes today vs Bills 0 INTs...— Fran Charles (@fran_charles) October 7, 2012
