Gore Sets Record, Davis Closes In

49ers running back Frank Gore made franchise history by becoming the first player for the 49ers to rush for 1000 yards in four separate seasons. Not only that, but because Gore set a record last season by rushing for 1000 yards for three consecutive seasons, he also increased his record this year by making it four consecutive.

Gore needed 58 yards going into Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions and came away with 71 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown, as well as four receptions for 81 yards in the 20-6 win. Gore now has 1013 rushing on the season while having missed three weeks and playing for a rather schizophrenic offense that doesn’t know whether they want to be a passing team or a running team.

Earlier in the season 49ers tight end Vernon Davis broke the franchise record for most touchdowns by a TE. The previous record of nine (set by Ted Kwalik in 1972) was broken in the 49ers loss to Seattle just a few weeks ago and now, sitting at 12 (a mark which only five tight ends have achieved) he hopes to tie and break the current record of 13 set by Antonio Gates in 2004.

Davis is definitely hoping to accomplish this, it’s been a breakout year for the tight end who most were beginning to label as busts, and it’s been a breakout season since seemingly week four. With one week left in the season the 49ers have only the St. Louis Rams to play on Sunday, in which Davis can tie and possibly break the record. He needs one to tie it and two to set a new one.
