NFL: San Francisco 49ers defeat the New York Jets

The San Fransisco 49ers moved to 3-1 after a 34-0 road win over the Jets last night.

Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and back-up quarterback Colin Kaepernick all ran for scores as the 49ers (3-1) bounced back from a disappointing loss at Minnesota.

Rather than head back to the West Coast after that defeat, coach Jim Harbaugh chose to have his team stay in eastern Ohio and practice at Youngstown State all week.

It was San Francisco’s first shutout since beating the St Louis Rams 26-0 last December.

The Jets misery was compounded by the loss of wide receiver Santonio Holmes to what appeared to be a serious foot injury.

It was the first time New York has been shut out since losing 9-0 to Green Bay two years ago and the Jets’ biggest shutout home loss since a 37-0 beating by Buffalo in 1989.

Mark Sanchez had another poor game for the Jets, going 13 of 29 for 103 yards and an interception as his side finished with just 45 yards rushing.
