The San Francisco #49ers became the first team in NFL history to have more than 300 yards rushing and passing in the same game.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in 49ers!
Yesterday Alex Smith passed for 303 yards and a combination of Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and others ran for 311 more in the Niners' 45-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
No NFL team rushed for more than 300 yards in a single game last season. Only two teams did it in 2010. In the past two decades, the team 300-yard rushing barrier has been surpassed 26 times.
San Francisco's 621 yards is tied for the 15th-highest total in league history. The 1951 Los Angeles Rams have the record with a 722-yard game against the New York Yanks. The 49ers total is the fourth highest in the past 30 years.
- Prior to Sunday, Alex Smith had thrown for over 300 yards in a game just twice in his career. It took him until his 38th start to accomplish the feat.

Now they just need to win a Super Bowl. :)
I don't think there's a team with a better chance than the 49ers.
They have more pro bowlers than any other team, and they're really playing great together.
