Gore Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Posted Sep 22, 2009



The San Francisco 49ers were notified today that RB Frank Gore has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his performance Sunday versus the Seattle Seahawks.

With touchdown runs of 79 and 80 yards, 49ers RB Frank Gore became the only player in NFL history, other than Barry Sanders (80 & 82 at TB, 10/12/97), to register two scoring runs of 75 yards-or-more in the same game. On the day, Gore posted his second career 200-yard rushing performance (16-207-2TDs), while leading his team to a 2-0 start and a spot atop the NFC West. His 12.9 yards per carry average ranks second in franchise history (min. 10 carries) and is the third-highest single-game average (min. 15 carries) in the NFL, since 1970. Gore’s 80-yd. touchdown run was the longest run of his career, while the 79 yarder now ranks second. He also set a career-high, and the 6th-highest total in 49ers history, with 246 yards from scrimmage, having led the team with 39 yards receiving.

Other Gore Notables from the day
