Riding a five-game winning streak, the San Francisco 49ers move to 6-2 heading into the Week 9 bye.
Granted, this game was what it was—a Super Bowl contender versus the worst team in professional football—but the 49ers still took care of business. Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore helped this offense drop 42 points on the Jacksonville Jaguars defense, winning by a 32-point margin.
The defense also played lights-out again, even without key contributors like Aldon Smith, Chris Culliver and Ian Williams.
The 49ers are looking like one of the NFL’s best teams, alongside the Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos. They’re only going to get stronger after the bye week, getting players back from their injury lists.
This is a team to keep an eye on going forward.
49ers 42, Jaguars 10
