A by-the-numbers look at the Bucs' 34-17 win over the 49ers:

5

Years since the Bucs rallied from a deficit of 14 or more points. In September 2011, they came back to beat the Vikings after falling behind 17-0.

249

Bucs' rushing yards, their fourth-highest total in a single game. They rushed for 283 against the Eagles last season, 278 against the Raiders in 2012 and 250 against the Cowboys in 2010.

255

Jacquizz Rodgers' total rushing yards over the Bucs' past two games. That's more rushing yards than he's had in three of his previous five seasons.

110

Rodgers' rushing yards in the first half against the 49ers, breaking his single-game career-high of 101 yards, which he set two weeks ago against the Panthers. Coming into this season, he had never rushed for 100 yards in a game.

6

Bucs' runs of 10 or more yards. They had 10 such gains in their first five games.

562

Total rushing yards the 49ers have allowed over their past two games, a franchise record. San Francisco has allowed 1,296 rushing yards through seven games. Since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, only 28 teams have allowed more in their first seven games of a season.

7.0

Bucs' yards per play. They came into the game averaging 4.8 yards per play, the second-worst average in the NFL (49ers, 4.6).

7

Bucs' total takeaways over their past two games. That's their most in back-to-back weeks since they recorded eight in wins against the Falcons and Lions in 2013.
