The New York Jets entered Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers ranked No. 2 in several run defense categories. They will exit the game in a worse position. 49ers running back Carlos Hyde is rolling in the first half against the Jets, surpassing 100 yards rushing for only the third time in his career.
Hyde has 141 yards rushing through the first half of the game, to go along with seven receiving yards and a touchdown. He has done it on only seven carries, with a long run of 47 yards.
Hyde entered the game with 686 yards rushing, meaning he needed to average 78.5 yards per game the rest of the way to reach 1,000 for the season. With his big first half, he is up to 827 yards for the season. He needs 173 more yards to get to 1,000. He would be the first non-Frank Gore running back to reach that mark since Kevan Barlow did in 2003.
Here is some video of his day so far:
