The San Francisco 49ers improved to 6-2 with a strong performance in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. While the Jaguars are not a good team, this game represented a challenge of maintaining focus. The 49ers were heavy favorites, and while the defense did not get nearly enough pressure, the team was able to win this one in a waltz.

The game was filled with an assortment of notable news. Jim Harbaugh became the fourth fastest coach to reach 30 wins, doing it in his 40th game. He is also 10-2 against the AFC, which is the best mark of any current NFC coach. The 49ers also improved to 14-6 on the road under Harbaugh.

Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore each ran for a pair of touchdowns. This marked the first time since 1961 that a 49ers quarterback and running back accomplished this feat in the same game. And for Frank Gore, this marks the first time in his career he has rushed for two touchdowns in a game in back-to-back weeks. Not too shabby.

With the Win...

  • The 49ers improved to 14-6 on the road since head coach Jim Harbaugh took over in 2011, tying New England Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick, for 1st in the NFL in road win percentage during that span (.700).
  • The 49ers improved their all-time record against the Jaguars to 2-2, and moved to 2-0 all-time at Wembley Stadium, becoming only the second NFL team ever to win multiple games in London (New England - 2).
  • The 49ers recorded their fifth consecutive double-digit victory for the first time since 1995.
  • The 49ers' five-game winning streak is the second-longest active winning streak in the NFL (Kansas City - 8).
  • Head coach Jim Harbaugh improved his record against AFC South opponents to 3-1.
  • Harbaugh improved his overall record to 30-9-1 as a head coach, since he made his NFL head-coaching debut in 2011, becoming the fourth-fastest head coach to reach 30 wins since the merger in 1970.
