Six In A Row For The Niners; Frank Gore Sets Franchise Record

At Landover, Maryland:

Quarterback Alex Smith threw for 200 yards and a touchdown (30 yards to tight end Bruce Miller) while Frank Gore ran for 107 yards to become the first player in franchise history to run for 100 or more yards in five consecutive games as the San Francisco 49ers (6-1) won their sixth straight National Football League game on Sunday (their longest winning streak since 1997), defeating the slumping Washington Redskins (3-5) 19-11 on the road.  The Niners are off to their best start in fourteen years while the Redskins have dropped four games in a row.

David Akers made four field goals for San Francisco, of 52, 34, 45, and 20 yards.
