After a 30-22 win over the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers NaVorro Bowman said the win was a “huge statement” (Credit: AP Photo) After leading the 49ers with 11 tackles and had an interception of Aaron Rodgers as the 49ers beat the Packers on Sunday and Bowman thinks this win meant a whole lot more than just in the standings. “That was a huge statement,” Bowman said on NFL Network’s Around the League Live. “Going up against the hot shots in the league prior to that game, we just wanted to go out and really set the tone.” Bowman said the 49ers need to make the same kind of statement in their second game, Sunday night against the Lions, that they made in the first. “It’s going to be similar to the first,” Bowman said. “It was great to go up against the Packers and now having the Lions coming to the Stick, we’re prepared for it. We know what to expect. We just have to go out there and approach this game with the same mindset that we did the first one, and I’m sure we’ll be OK.” I am not one for making assumptions after one game, but the 49ers sure did look impressive on Sunday.   Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Columnist - Brett Krummenacker @BKrumm_SKThe post NaVorro Bowman: 49ers’ win over Packers “was a huge statement” appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
