With his 5th consecutive 100 yard game Sunday at Washington Frank Gore is just 149 yards from passing Joe Perry for first on the 49ers all time rushing list. Gore currently stands at 7196 behind just the Hall of Fame Perry’s 7345 career rushing yards. Gore is on a roll lately after a slow start the first 3 weeks and has climbed to third on the NFLs rushing list this season. Gore apparently tweaked his ankle Sunday vs. the Redskins but has insisted he is okay and head coach Jim Harbaugh has backed him up.
The 49ers return home at 7-1 with a 5 game lead in the NFC West to face the NY Giants. The Giants have been beat up on the defensive side of the ball all season long and rank a mere 20th in the NFL. Fortunately for Gore they rank even worse in rushing defense at 25th in the NFL. Will this be the week that Frank Gore becomes the 49ers all time leading rusher? You Decide!
