49ers fans had quite an exciting victory to bank on, having shut out the Rams 35-0. It was an interesting game that saw both the offense and the defense evolve and grow.

With an epic performance from Frank Gore, who ran for two touchdowns of over 75-yards, and a very strong showing from the defense, the 49ers strangled the Seahawks, and improved to 2-0. With the sole spot at the top of NFC West theirs, the 49ers get ready to face the Vikings, in what will be a very interesting match up. Both teams have strong run games, the 49ers defense likely has an edge, and the Vikings passing offense likely has an edge. This has the makings to be a very good game.
