The San Francisco 49ers went back to what they do best: a steady diet of Frank Gore mixed with a dominant defense and timely special teams play.
The result was a 13-6 victory over the Seattle Seahawks that got San Francisco back on track following a demoralizing loss to the New York Giants.
It was a vastly different approach than the one San Francisco used four days earlier when it ran the ball just 17 times while Alex Smith threw three interceptions.
A change in offensive philosophy or just taking what the defense was giving up?
Probably somewhere in the middle.
