49ers players react to record-setting offensive performance against Bills

The 49ers offense did things that no San Francisco team or NFL team had done before on Sunday, and the players are pretty happy about it.

The San Francisco 49ers amassed 621 yards of total offense in their 45-3 stomping of the Buffalo Bills, which was the highest single-game total in franchise history. The players were aware of that fact after the game, and were proud to set an impressive record for a team that has been known for offensive innovation.

Tight end Vernon Davis, who accounted for a nice chunk of those yard with 5 catches for 106, reacted to the performance after the game, via CSN Bay Area:

"We're talking about legends who played here. Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice. To be able to perform at this level and do it better than what they did, that's a huge honor, a huge honor."

That single-game franchise yards record wasn't the only historical feat the Niners pulled off Sunday. The offense also become the first in NFL history to rush for 300 yards and pass for 300 yards in the same game.

The win puts the Niners at 4-1 on the year and tied for the NFC West lead. San Francisco will try to duplicate their performance when they face the New York Giants on Sunday.
