49ers Shut Down Jets, 34-0 [VIDEO]
Carlos Rogers returned a fumble 51 yards for a touchdown, and the San Francisco 49ers ran for more than 200 yards to rout the Jets 34-0 on Sunday.
Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick — on a wildcat-style option — all ran for scores as the 49ers (3-1) bounced back from a loss at Minnesota. Rather than head back to the West Coast, coach Jim Harbaugh chose to have his team stay in eastern Ohio — and it apparently helped.
Meanwhile, the Jets (2-2) couldn’t get anything going on offense and lost top wide receiver Santonio Holmes to what it appeared to be a serious foot injury. It was the first time New York was shut out since losing 9-0 to Green Bay in 2010, and the Jets’ biggest shutout home loss since falling 37-0 to Buffalo in 1989.
