NFL Regular Season Week 2 – The 49ers Gold Rush

The Detroit Lions visited the San Francisco 49ers in a game that should have been a fairly easy contest on paper.   The Lions were arguably the second worst team in the NFL in Week 1 after getting destroyed by the New York Jets and having to fly across the country to play an up and coming 49ers team should have been bad news for the Lions.  But a funny thing happened on the way to the rout…the Lions actually came to play and gave the 49ers a surprisingly tough game, scoring the last 14 points before losing 30 – 27.

With the win, the 49ers stay in contention for the NFC West race with the undefeated Los Angeles Rams and that is likely to be a two horse race as the Seahawks and Cardinals have significant issues.  Staying within a game of the lead at this stage in the season is critical because it appears that only one team from the NFC West will make the playoffs.

But enough of this sanguine assessment…we want to see the Gold Rush, so let’s take a close at the squad.  Click here to view the 49ers game day gallery.
