49ers Stop the Run again against Pittsburgh

San Fransisco broke their own record for stopping rushing TDs on Monday night as they beat the Steelers 20-3. Even the lights going out couldn’t spoil the 49ers night as they moved to 11-3 to keep their hopes of home field advantage alive going into the playoffs.

The game will be most remembered for their defense which once again prevented a rushing TD meaning they have not conceeded on through their 1st 14 games. This broke their own record of two which they achieved in both 1996 and 1997.

The Steelers dropped to 10-4 and now trail Baltimore in the AFC North, however they are assured of a Wild Card place at least and will be a different proposition with James Harrison back in the team and when Ben Roethlisberger is fit again.
