10 Statistics 49ers Fans Should Know

Posted Oct 7, 2014

Impress your friends with these 10 statistics that highlight the best moments from the San Francisco 49ers through five games.

Today's Niners Daily has 10 stats all fans should know about the San Francisco 49ers.

1. Perrish Cox leads the NFL with 10 pass breakups. He is also in a three-way tie for most interceptions with three, two of which have come in the last two weeks.

2. I looked through Colin Kaepernick's five-game split from 2013 to '14 and saw improvements across the board.

3. Props to 49ers beat writer Cam Inman for this...

4. The trenches is where San Francisco earns its reputation around the NFL. The 49ers rank third in rushing offense (145 yards per game) and third in rush defense (73.8 yards per game).

5. With a win over Kansas City last week, Jim Harbaugh improved to 11-2 versus AFC foes since '11. San Francisco's .846 winning percentage vs. non-conference opponents over that time span is best in the NFL. The 49ers face three more opponents from the AFC West this season: Denver in Week 7, Oakland in Week 14 and San Diego in Week 16.

6. Phil Dawson has made nine kicks in a row, all of them at Levi’s® Stadium in the last two weeks.

7. Frank Gore has carried the ball 77 times and has 0 fumbles. With 365 yards on the ground, Gore has the fifth most running yards in the NFL.

8. Let's not forget about how well the 49ers defense played in the second half of last week, and in the team's comeback win over the Eagles in Week 3.

The overall record of San Francisco's remaining opponents is 24-24. The 49ers will face five teams with losing records (St. Louis, twice, Washington, New Orleans and Oakland.)

10. St. Louis, the team's opponent this week on "Monday Night Football," ranks sixth in passing yards. The Rams have totaled 283.5 yards per game without starting quarterback Sam Bradford. His replacement, Austin Davis, has completed 67.8 percent of his passes (97 of 143) for 1,129 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions. Davis has a 96.8 passer rating.
