49ers Overcome Short Week and Travel to Dominate Jaguars

JACKSONVILLE – On a cross country trip on a short week and an early kickoff, the San Francisco 49ers took care of business on the road in a commanding 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 49ers led wire-to-wire, and by as many as 27 points, prior to a garbage time touchdown by Jaguars running back James Robinson. The victory evens out San Francisco’s record to .500 now 11 weeks into the season.

“I think we’ve been good on the road. I think we’ve been good going to the East Coast,” Kyle Shanahan said postgame. “We knew how much our backs were against the wall before that Rams game. And we also knew that meant nothing if we couldn’t win today. I get how it looks, but I don’t think it was very hard to get the guys attention and get ready to play. We knew how that felt when we were losing games and how much better it felt against the Rams and we didn’t want that to end today.”

Here are some notes from Sunday’s rout:

For the second-straight week, the 49ers opened the contest with a lengthy drive. Last week against the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco marched down the field in an 18-play, 93-yard drive that chipped just over 11 minutes off the clock. On Sunday, the 49ers led a 20-play, 87-yard drive that lasted 13:05 and resulted in a Robbie Gould field goal.

The 20-play drive marked the longest scoring drive in the NFL since 2000.

San Francisco’s defense forced a quick three-and-out on the Jaguars opening drive and the 49ers offense responded by orchestrating a 7-play, 80-yard drive that resulted in a Deebo Samuel 25-yard rushing score.

Samuel’s score marked his third rushing touchdown of the season. He currently has the third-most rushing touchdowns for a wide receiver in NFL history behind only Tavon Austin (4, 2015) and Denard Robinson (4, 2014). Samuel also recorded three rushing touchdowns during the 49ers 2019 season.
