The 49ers offensive staff made NFL history last night
- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman helped put together an impressive offensive outing yesterday against the Buffalo Bills.
For the first time in NFL history a team went over the 300 mark in both passing and rushing. The Niners rushed for 311 yards and threw for 310 yards.
Now that's what you call balanced.
The 621 yards was a franchise record and included a 300 yard passer, a 100 yard rusher and two 100 yard receivers for the first time since 1961. The star studded teams of the 80's and 90's never put together a game quite like the Niners did last night.
Former Heisman winner finalist Alex Smith, who was part of some big offensive games during his college days at Utah, called the 45-3 rout "The best offensive performance that I've ever been a part of."
Next week the 49ers take on the Giants, the team that dashed their Super Bowl aspirations last season. But if Greg Roman and Jim Harbaugh keep putting together offensive game plans and getting their guys to execute like they did last night, they're going to be tough to beat.
Over the past two weeks, the Niners have outscored their opponents 79-3.
