Somehow, when you examine this game, I notice how many times the bounce of the ball worked out in the 49'ers favor so often in this game. In many games, folks speak about that one play or two which can turn a game around for a team. Looking at the play by play and stats for this game, I was amazed at how many things happened to benefit the 49'ers and all in one game!! What are the odds?
3 TDs were scored using only 5 offensive plays
4 TDs were of the 20+ yard variety - 24, 27, 34 and 38 yards
A fumble recovery was somehow "run back" 66 yards!
Recovered their own fumble for a TD
After the Pats tie the game, with momentum clearly in the Pats' favor, the 49'ers return the ensuing kick-off 62 yards, off which it took only one play, the 38 yards TD pass, for them to score to reclaim the lead permanently!
Kapernick fumbled the ball FOUR times, not losing one of them. Overall, SIX times for the 49'ers and only one lost fumble!
In summary, it appears it was meant to be for the 49'ers to win no matter how much the Pats did in this game. Granted, the Pats didn't help themselves in this game either.
Interesting take on it... especially the botched snaps. That is just basic bad football that turned turned out roses for SF. combined with favorable calls by refs... Nauseating to lose like that but... Non conference game, got some tape on them, overall a character building loss in many ways... IMO.
I actually thought the reffing favored the pats. Especially in the second half.
Take this counterpoint to thread titled " horrendous officiating" where I break it down .
