49ers set franchise yards record, beat Bills 45-3
SAN FRANCISCO 45, BUFFALO 3

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
AP Sports Writer

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Joe Montana never did it. Neither did Steve
Young or Y.A. Tittle. Even the architect of the West Coast
offense, Bill Walsh, could only imagine such a massive mark.



Of all the Hall of Fame quarterbacks and coaches in the history
of the San Francisco 49ers, leave it to Alex Smith and Jim
Harbaugh to set a new standard.



Smith threw for a season-high 303 yards and three touchdowns,
Frank Gore ran for 106 yards and a score, and the 49ers amassed
a franchise-record 621 yards in blowing by the Buffalo Bills
45-3 on Sunday.



San Francisco also became the first team in NFL history with 300
yards passing and 300 yards rushing.



"Very cool," Smith said. "When you think of the 49ers, you think
of great offense."



Michael Crabtree (seven catches for 113 yards) and Vernon Davis
(seven catches for 106 yards) each eclipsed the century mark to
pull San Francisco (4-1) into a tie with Arizona for the NFC
West lead. Even Randy Moss, rarely targeted in his comeback,
caught a pass for 11 yards.



Smith, the 2005 No. 1 overall pick out of Utah, threw TD passes
of 43, 28 and 10 yards and surpassed 300 yards passing for only
the third time in his career - and first in a victory. The last
time came when he had 309 yards in a loss at Philadelphia two
years ago - "a completely different world," he said - in former
coach Mike Singletary's final season.



"Quarterback was near perfect," Harbaugh said.



The Bills again found themselves on the wrong side of a 49ers
record - and quite a few others, too.



Rian Lindell kicked a 31-yard field goal in the first quarter
before the 49ers scored the final 42 points to hand Buffalo
(2-3) its second straight embarrassing loss. San Francisco's
previous best was 598 yards in a 34-31 loss to the Bills on
Sept. 13, 1992, which also was Buffalo's worst.



Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 126 yards and an interception, and
the Bills rushed for only 89 yards, most with the game well out
of hand once again.



"They flat-out dominated the game from end to end," Fitzpatrick
said. "We just got beat bad by a better team today. There was no
fancy stuff. They are who they are and they just played better."



Far better.



The Bills allowed 45 second-half points and 580 total yards in a
humiliating 52-28 home loss to New England last week. Beginning
a two-week road trip, Buffalo's baggage also traveled to the
West Coast.



Since taking a 21-7 lead against the Patriots, Buffalo has been
outscored 90-10. The Patriots and 49ers combined to gain 1,201
yards. And with the 49ers shredding the New York Jets last week,
they've outscored opponents 79-3 in their last two games.



The Bills became the first team to give up at least 550 yards in
consecutive games in the same season since the 1950 New York
Yanks.



"I have no answers and no excuses," beleaguered Bills coach Chan
Gailey said. "I don't have the answers and I have to find the
answers. That's my job."



With the Bills unable to slow anybody down on defense, San
Francisco abandoned its usually conservative game plan to
deliver a scintillating show in the air.



Smith, who sprained his middle finger in the fourth quarter,
completed 18 of 24 passes. He also had a perfect 158.3 passer
rating in the first half, when he threw for 237 yards - a career
best for a half.



The longest completion Smith had in the first four weeks was for
29 yards. In the first half alone, he completed a 53-yarder to
Davis that set up a field goal by David Akers, a 43-yard
touchdown to Kyle Williams and hooked up with Crabtree for 36
yards.



Williams took the back-shoulder pass from Smith, spun away from
a defender and ran the final 10 yards free into the end zone.
Williams fell to his knees, raised his arms and nodded to the
sun-splashed crowd at Candlestick Park after giving the 49ers a
10-3 lead.



Every time the Bills blew an opportunity - and they blew plenty
- the 49ers capitalized.



Backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who ran for 39 yards on
four carries, fumbled on an end-around and Buffalo took over at
its own 17. Two plays later, Patrick Willis stripped Scott
Chandler, San Francisco recovered and Smith floated a 28-yard
touchdown to Crabtree to put the 49ers in front 17-3 with 24
seconds to go before the half.



"Everything about today was just amazing," Crabtree said.



A holding penalty on Buffalo's Jairus Byrd wiped out a punt
return Leodis McKelvin took for a touchdown in the first
quarter. The offense failed to score any points after McKelvin
returned a kickoff 59 yards. And after a 12-play, 75-yard drive
that took nearly 6 minutes stalled in the second quarter,
Lindell kicked a field goal for Buffalo's only score.



Smith led another touchdown drive that featured Kaepernick
gaining 15 yards on a sweep and ended one play later when Gore
dove over the pile for a TD that extended San Francisco's lead
to 24-3.



Chris Culliver intercepted an underthrown pass by Fitzpatrick
just shy of the goal line to end Buffalo's best chance to reach
the end zone all afternoon.



Smith also tossed a 10-yard TD pass to Mario Manningham,
Kaepernick ran 16 yards for a score and Anthony Dixon added a
3-yard run for the final touchdown.



"I'm not a big statistical guy, don't get caught up in it,"
49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman said. "But at the same
time, just in the normal course of events to be able to throw up
that kind of production, obviously we're doing something right."



NOTES: Buffalo allowed 500 yards in consecutive games for the
first time in franchise history. ... Bills DE Mario Williams
wore a small stabilizer on his left wrist instead of the brace
he had the first four weeks. He appeared to grimace after a few
plays. "It's good one day, and bad the next day," said Williams,
who had two tackles and no sacks. ... Byrd injured a chest
muscle, and Bills OL Chad Rinehart hurt his calf in the second
half and did not return. Both are day to day.
