49ers Vs. Browns: Will Frank Gore Get His 110 Yards?

New, comments

If you guys hadn't heard, Frank Gore is just 110 yards away from moving into second place on the 49ers all-time rushing list, at which point he'll pass Roger Craig and be within reach of Joe Perry at number one. We've been talking about it a lot, but what do you think are the actual chances of Gore getting 110 yards against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday?

Surely, barring injury, he'll be able to get it by season's end. If he doesn't, then I really fear for the 49ers first-place lead in the NFC West. Still though, what about this Sunday's game? What's the gameplan for San Francisco? Fortunately for Gore, providing he cares about the record, he's likely going to get plenty of carries. Even if he doesn't care about the record, really, Gore isn't happy unless Gore is fed.

And again - he should be fed. The Browns don't have a great rushing defense, and they have a strong passing defense. Joe Haden can be expected to lockdown any of the 49ers receivers, and Alex Smith hasn't really been throwing for big yardage anyway. Cleveland is currently allowing 119.5 rushing yards per game, which put them at 20th in the league in that regard. They've given up big games to Darren McFadden, Chris Johnson, Daniel Thomas and Cedric Benson this season.

So, what do you say? Does Gore get the yardage against the Browns?
