49ers Vs. Redskins Recap By The Numbers: Frank Gore Has Another Big Game

The San Francisco 49ers just keep rolling along, picking up another victory on Sunday to improve their record to 7-1 and remain undefeated on the road. They probably wish their 19-10 win over the middling Washington Redskins was a bit more decisive, but they'll take them any way they can get them.

Once again, San Francisco's biggest offensive star was running back Frank Gore. His 107 yards on 19 carries made up the bulk of the 138 total rushing yards for the Niners. He averaged 5.6 yards per carry with a long of 27. Another solid performance all around for Gore, who keeps piling more yards onto his career numbers and is currently at second place on the all-time San Francisco rushing list. He's still 1,600 yards behind Joe Perry, who has 8,689 career rushing yards, but every game gets him a little bit closer.

Although Gore had the flashiest numbers in the game, the true offensive star for the 49ers today was kicker David Akers. Counting his extra point, he was solely responsible for 13 of San Francisco's 19 points in the game. He was four for four on field goals, nailing them from 52, 34, 45 and 20 yards. A pretty impressive feat and it's great for the Niners to have yet another consistent weapon in their bag of tricks.

San Francisco's passing game wasn't terribly present in this one. Michael Crabtree again led all receivers with 51 yards on five catches. Quarterback Alex Smith had a solid game with 200 passing yards and the only 49ers touchdown of the game, a 30 yard pass to Bruce Miller (which was Miller's only catch of the game). Smith threw no interceptions and finished with a 109.7 passer rating.
