San Francisco has rattled off three-straight victories, each scoring at least 30 points, possessing the ball for at minimum 37:00 minutes of the contest and dominating the turnover battle. Their recent success has pushed the team over .500 for the first time since Week 3 and, so far, has given the team a shot at playing January football.
