10 Best Performances of the San Francisco 49ers' 2013 Season
Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports
Anquan Boldin's 13-reception, 208-receiving yard performance in Week 1 against Green Bay was spectacular.

With their eyes set on another postseason berth, the 2013 San Francisco 49ers have enjoyed plenty of awe-inspiring performances in the regular season thus far.

In a way, this team was built to have such moments.

The defense, studded with stars like Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Justin Smith and Aldon Smith, has once more been at the forefront of San Francisco's success.

The offense has also generated plenty of stellar moments—emanating from the sturdy work of running back Frank Gore, the abilities of tight end Vernon Davis and the veteran abilities of wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

These athletes, and more, have heralded some of the top performances of San Francisco's 2013 campaign thus far.

In order to make this list, we must establish certain criteria.

First, a performance must have been paramount to the 49ers' efforts.  While they do not necessarily need to be considered game-changers, they should at least have played a significant role.

In addition, performances need to be taken into context with what the team is facing.  For example, 150-yards rushing is always impressive, but if it came against a team that ranked towards the bottom in stopping the run, the performance is not as exemplary as it would be against a top-ranked run defense.

Further consideration is also given to any accolades given to individual efforts—for example, Boldin receiving an award for NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his Week 1 showing.

Let us review some of these stellar moments and performances that 49ers fans have enjoyed over the course of the 2013 season so far.
