Trending: Neutral

On Sunday, the 49ers continued their surprisingly successful season by extending their win streak to five games—the team's longest since 2001. Their victory over the Browns was led by Frank Gore who rushed for 134 yards. The San Francisco defense now ranks as the No. 1 defense in the league in points allowed per game (15.3). With a full four games on the second-place Seahawks, San Francisco has all but locked up the division. It is the NFC West but these dudes at least deserve a handshake and pat on the back.
