Week 15: San Francisco 49ers 33, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14- Post Game Thoughts

There was not a lot of drama at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday as the 49ers came into Tampa and took care of business with a dominant win.  San Fran is really peaking at the right time and they are looking like they could go on a bit of a run if and when they make the playoffs.  Colin Kaepernick played very well in this one, throwing two touchdown passes and no interceptions.  Really, the Niners just ran their offense in this one and dominated the Buccaneers in the trenches.  As usual, the defense did its job as well; they forced two turnovers and allowed just 13 first downs, 183 total yards, and only one third down conversion (on ten attempts).  The 49ers just dominated this game.  Taking care of business against weaker teams on the road is something that all of the best teams in this league are able to do, and to me, this game just proved that San Francisco is still a top 5 team in the league.  The Tampa Bay offense has been shut down as of late.  Bobby Rainey has not looked good in two of the team’s last three games and the Bucs have suffered as a result.  This is an offense that needs to be backed by a strong ground game.  It sets up play-action deep shots down the field to the likes of Vincent Jackson.  Fundamentals will be key for the Bucs in their final two games of the season, both of which will be on the road (against the Rams and Saints).
