49ers Vs. Browns Score: Frank Gore Is the Show, San Francisco Beats Cleveland 20-10

The San Francisco 49ers rode their star tailback to victory in a rather uneventful victory over the Cleveland Browns. Frank Gore tied a career-high in carries (31) on his way to passing Roger Craig as the second all-time leading rusher for SF with 134 rushing yards and one touchdown on the day.

Other than Gore, there wasn't much of note that happened. Cleveland did cut the 49ers deficit to one touchdown with six minutes left in the 4th quarter on a Colt McCoy connection with Josh Cribbs, but on the next drive Gore chewed up the clock with 21 yards on seven carries, and Alex Smith helped out with two first down conversions to Braylon Edwards and Isaac Sopoaga (more on that later).  David Akers kicked a 26 yard field goal after the two minute warning to put the game on ice.

Smith had an efficient if unremarkable 15 completions on 24 attempts for 177 yards and one touchdown. San Francisco moves to 6-1 with a clash with the Giants awaiting them next Sunday.
