San Francisco 49ers
Jason: 35 - 10, 49ers: Why couldn't the Ryder Cup have been this Sunday instead? This one has the potential to enter into the pantheon of All-Time Bills Road Game Debacles. Anticipating at least one San Francisco return for a TD, either defense or kick teams. Give the points.
Frank: 38-16, 49ers: If Buffalo is serious about showing folks they're legitimate, they've got to start doing it soon. This week, they're not going to do that with a win, though. They can show progress and promise by putting up a fight, by adapting, and by not giving up once San Francisco starts to pull away - which they'll do early. They're playing one of the top few teams in the league Sunday and are traveling to the left coast to do so. I don't see any way Chan, Ryan, and the boys walk away with a win in this one.
Aaron: 34-17, 49ers: The Bills got physically manhandled in the running game by the usual pass-happy Pats. They were the same old Bills' defens...

(Eds: Adds quotes, details.) The San Francisco 49ers figured they were in for a long term project when they selected Missouri defensive end Aldon Smith with the No. 6 pick in the 2011 draft.
They're happy to have been proven wrong.
At the time of the draft the team viewed Smith as an outside linebacker in defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's 3-4 scheme, despite the fact the...
It has been another great start for the San Francisco 49ers, and they should be poised for another playoff run. While San Francisco was upset in Week 3 by the Minnesota Vikings, they bounced back in a big way in Week 4, in a dominating win over the New York Jets.
While the 49ers will never rank amongst the elite when it comes to passing, they are one of the toughest teams to stop...
Patrick Willis has established himself as one of the best defensive players in the NFL. And while the 49ers linebacker is physically gifted, it's what's inside of Willis that has brought him to new heights. Willis has been selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first five NFL seasons after enjoying a standout college career at Ole Miss. Things haven't always been easy...
49ers’ RB Brandon Jacobs Running At ‘Full Bore’ Once Again -
Brandon Jacobs (knee) was reportedly running 60-yard dashes “full bore” in triple-degree weather at the 49ers’ facility on Tuesday. Jacobs has pronounced himself “ready to play,” and may immediately slot in as San Francisco’s go-to guy on short-yardage downs. Through four weeks, the 49ers rank 22nd in...
San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers told the media on Tuesday that he felt like the <a href=""I think when you look at it, certainly we didn't play well, it's obvious we didn't play well to his standards, either," Ryan said. "I think we have a reputation in this league as being a tremendous defense and we didn't play that way. As far...
Even with Colin Kaepernick's explosive performance in the 34-0 shutout of the Jets, Bay Area sports fans aren't even close to framing a debate about a quarterback controversy. First of all, Kaepernick moved the ball explosively with his feet. He essentially gained 50 yards on three carries (with two kneel downs). But in the NFL, quarterbacks establish their utility as passers...
Greg Roman is giving the rest of the NFL something extra to think about it when it's time to play the San Francisco 49ers.
Roman doesn't like to call them trick plays, but the offensive coordinator's creative play selection last week sparked the 49ers to their most productive performance of the season during a 34-0 rout of the New York Jets.
Mixing in a collection of...
Not to jinx anything but the 49ers look healthier than theyve been since offseason workouts began in mid-April.
On Thursday, linebacker NaVorro Bowman was practicing for a second straight day in a black, no-contact jersey, apparently because of a shoulder strain. It does not appear to be hindering him, however, and that looked to be the case in this pass coverage against tight...
49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers said on Sunday the Jets looked like a team that wanted to "hit the showers" as a long fourth quarter got longer in a hurry.
Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger reports Ryan said that although his team looked tired, he did not see anyone quit.
"I think when you look at it, certainly we didn't play well, it's obvious we didn...
The New York Jets are in a world of hurt right as a team, and the vultures are circling, and now the Jets have opposing players questioning their character. San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers believes the Jets quit on Sunday during that embarrassing loss.
“It kinda seemed like, after a while they just, I know, looking at their defense,...
The San Francisco 49ers on Sunday face another passing offense and another mobile quarterback, two elements that have given them problems this year. Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown 12 touchdowns this season, the most in the league through four weeks, and those 12 have come in just 72 completions. He is also a run threat and is somewhat similar in style to Minnesota...
The last time the Buffalo Bills entered Candlestick Park, the 2004 San Francisco 49ers started a struggling quarterback (not named Smith!) the day after Christmas on the way to a 2-14 season under then coach, Dennis Erickson.Drew Bledsoe played conservatively following a running game that pounded the Niners for 226 yards and a 41-7 score.Oh, how things change! In 2012, if you have...
The 49ers manhandled the Jets on Sunday in a 34-0 victory. Yet the team had quite a few first time occasions on each side of the ball to propel them to the big win. The biggest note for firsts in this game is quarterback Colin Kaepernick's first career touchdown. The second year backup scored his first touchdown in the second quarter of the game on a read option run. This was...
Donte Whitner, the former Buffalo Bills safety, knows all to well what losing to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots feels like.
According to SFGate.com, Whitner suggested the Bills’ problems went beyond their personnel when asked about Buffalo’s mindset after its 52-28 loss to the Patriots last week.
“Their backs are against the wall, knowing those guys,” said Whitner...
Neither linebacker Aldon Smith nor right tackle Anthony Davis drew fines from the league despite their unnecessary-roughness penalties in Sundays 34-0 win over the Jets.
Also avoiding financial persecution was safety Dashon Goldson, who delivered a fumble-forcing hit on tight end Dedrick Ellis knee.
Davis argued this week that he shouldnt have been called for an unnecesary...
