San Francisco 49ers: Week 5 Report Card: Grading Every Position

The San Francisco 49ers defied all logic on Sunday with a lopsided 48-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Heading into the game, the conventional wisdom called for a tough, hard-fought, low-scoring contest.

Throw conventional wisdom out the window, as the 49ers romped to an easy win. 

San Francisco also avenged a 21-0 loss to these same Buccaneers just last year.  The 49ers now stand with a record of 4-1, two games ahead of second-place Seattle, who upset the New York Giants this week. 

Heading into this game, I was extremely worried that the 49ers would have trouble with the physical and athletic Buccaneers.  As it turned out, I had nothing to worry about, as the 49ers outplayed Tampa Bay in every phase of the game.

Let's take a closer look at each of position groups for the 49ers and see how they graded.
