49ers Get 7-3 Lead Over Panthers

The 49ers got going fast against the Carolina Panthers. After forcing a punt on the opening drive with good play from Justin Smith and the secondary, the Niners got their first offensive possession going. Frank Gore had a twenty yard run, which was followed by a deep pass to Vernon Davis over the middle of the field. It would end up being a 53-yard reception that brought Davis to the one yard line. On the next play, it was a fake to Gore and a nice little one-yard touchdown reception for Vernon Davis to put the 49ers up 7-0 after the extra point.

On Carolina's next possession, they moved the ball very well, marching downfield, before a sequence of tackles for losses forced a field goal, which was good. Justin Smith and Ahmad Brooks both made good plays on the drive. The game is currently 7-3, with the 49ers leading.
