Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick -- on a Wildcat-style option -- all ran for scores as the 49ers (3-1) bounced back from a loss at Minnesota. Rather than head back to the West Coast, coach Jim Harbaugh chose to have his team stay in eastern Ohio -- and it apparently helped.
Meanwhile, the Jets (2-2) couldn't get anything going on offense and lost top wide receiver Santonio Holmes to what appeared to be a serious foot injury. It was the first time New York was shut out since losing 9-0 to Green Bay in 2010, and the Jets' biggest shutout home loss since falling 37-0 to Buffalo in 1989.
