49ers vs. Lions, Score Update: Niners Lead 15-13 After Three

It's looking like it might go down to the wire at Ford Field this afternoon as the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions find themselves in a defensive lockdown at the end of the third quarter, with the Niners leading 15-13 heading into the fourth quarter. 

The Lions added a Jason Hanson field goal early in the third quarter to retake the lead 13-12, though the Niners were knocking on the door after Frank Gore opened up a 55 yard run including a 15 yard horse collar penalty on top of it. Unfortunately Delanie Walker couldn't hold on to Alex Smith's pass, leading to another David Akers field goal to make it 15-13. 

Both teams had some decent drives end in punts, then Alex Smith overthrew Michael Crabtree over the middle for an interception to Amari Spievey, only his second INT of the season. So far Alex Smith is 13 for 25 and 101 yards , Michael Crabtree is 6 catches for 59 yards,  while Frank Gore has 122 yards  on only 8 carries and a touchdown.  

The Niners red zone D has proven why they are the best in the business right now, keeping the Lions to only one touchdown so far, hopefully they can keep it up.
