But Gore's 15 carries for 42 yards tell a different story: San Francisco didn't lean heavily on its stud running back in Week 13.
In fact, this trend dates back to Week 11. Since the 49ers defeat at New Orleans, Gore has averaged 14 carries and 40 yards per game.
Don't expect this to continue.
Gore has started 40 consecutive games, the longest such streak among active ball carriers, and currently sits 179 yards from his the seventh 1,000 yard season of his nine-yard career.
If December is about determination, expect San Francisco to rely more heavily on running the ball, and handing it off to Gore.
That's what coaches have done in the past. Gore's 17.1 carries-per-game career average for month No. 12 is only bested by his 18.3 mark for January.
And the 49ers plan to still be playing by then.
