The wideout-rich approach helped Colin Kaepernick to a career-high 78.4 completion percentage, but Gore was nonplussed after seeing just 10 yards off six rushes, his fewest amount of totes in two years.
"I can't talk right now," Gore told reporters after the game, per Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee. "I'm sorry. I can't talk."
It was odd for San Francisco to depart from a base offense that's generated so much success under coach Jim Harbaugh. Instead of the punishing style 49ers fans are used to, Kaepernick and friends left Gore on the sideline to watch as the team failed to score a fourth-quarter point for the third straight game.
