Buccaneers vs. 49ers: Live Score, Highlights and Anaylsis

Michael Schottey@SchotteyNFL National Lead WriterOctober 9, 2011

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to San Francisco to take on the 49ers in Week 5 of the NFL schedule.

Both teams are heading into the game with 3-1 records, thanks mostly to their respective run games. While neither have been stellar, both LeGarrette Blount and Frank Gore are close to 300 yards on the season.

Under center, Alex Smith of the Niners has been phenomenal. He is completing over 67 percent of his passes on the year and has only thrown one interception. Josh Freeman has been solid but has thrown four interceptions to only three touchdowns; he'll have to minimize mistakes to beat a tough 49ers defense.
