49ers vs. Bills postgame: San Francisco earns statement win

Niners Nation reacts to a second consecutive blowout victory by the San Francisco 49ers.

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

After dominating in a lopsided victory over the New York Jets in Week 4, the San Francisco 49ers didn't skip a beat on Sunday, topping the Buffalo Bills, 45-3.

Despite beating teams that are now a combined 4-5 this season, Niners Nation believes "a domination like this is still a statement." The blowout wins came with the 49ers as heavy favorites, even when San Francisco traveled to MetLife Stadium to take on New York. Following a loss to the Minnesota Vikings, Niners Nation feels this is exactly how the 49ers want to reassert themselves as contenders.

This was as complete a victory as we have seen from the 49ers since...last week! But seriously, this two-game stretch has seen the 49ers win by a combined score of 79-3.

San Francisco made history on offense against Buffalo, finishing with a 300-yard passer, a 100-yard rusher and two 100-yard receivers for the first time since 1961.

Quarterback Alex Smith delivered a performance of 303 passing yards and three touchdowns, finishing just seven yards shy of his career high in the passing game.
