Congratulations are in order for running back Frank Gore as he surpassed 1,000 yards for the fourth straight season. He is the only running back in 49ers history to do that. The run came in the third quarter with 1:47 to go. The 49ers had 2nd and goal from just inside the Lions 6. The run was a basic dive play up the middle out of the I-formation. Gore got down to about the 1 inch line as his knee made contact with the ground just before he passed the goal line.
Gore continues his march through the 49ers record books. There is still a quarter to play and Frank Gore stands 92 yards behind Garrison Hearst for 4th all-time among 49ers running backs. The 49ers lead 20-3 and will be looking to burn time off the clock, meaning Gore should get some more carries before this thing is through.
Congratulations to Frank Gore on another big achievement.
