Tampa Bay Buccaneers at San Francisco 49ers: How they scored

First quarter
7-0 49ers 10:26 4 plays, 50 yards, 2:28
Delanie Walker 26-yard pass from Alex Smith (David Akers kick) Key plays: The Niners set up at midfield after a 22-yard punt return by Ted Ginn. They picked up 18 yards on two short passes to RB Frank Gore then scored when Smith hit Walker despite triple coverage by the Bucs.
7-3 49ers 3:58 13 plays, 74 yards, 6:28
Connor Barth 24-yard field goal. Key plays: The Bucs got into 49ers territory for the first time thanks to a 33-yard catch-and-run by Arrelious Benn to the 49ers 47. They picked up three more first downs, mostly via short passes, then settled for Barth's field goal.


Second quarter
14-3 49ers 14:46 None
Carlos Rogers 31-yard interception return (David Akers kick). Key play: The Bucs dodged a bullet two plays earlier by recovering a fumble at their 10. But Rogers stepped in front of TE Kellen Winslow.
21-3 49ers 7:56 5 plays, 57 yards, 2:35
Frank Gore 2-yard run (David Akers kick) Key plays: San Francisco started at its 43 thanks to another interception and picked up 24 yards on a pass interference call against LB Dekoda Watson.
24-3 49ers 4:29 6 plays, 32 yards, 2:23
David Akers 37-yard field goal. Key plays: A 36-yard punt left San Francisco again starting near midfield. Frank Gore took over from there, rushing three times for 33 yards.


Third quarter
31-3 49ers 9:43 7 plays, 80 yards, 5:17
Vernon Davis 23-yard pass from Alex Smith (David Akers kick). Key plays: Smith kept the drive alive with a 15-yard pass to Michael Crabtree on third and 14. He hit Josh Morgan for 24 yards three plays later then hit Davis for the touchdown on the next play.
34-3 49ers 2:36 10 plays, 57 yards, 4:26
David Akers 27-yard field goal. Key plays: Frank Gore had runs of 18 and 19 yards. His backup, Kendall Hunter, added a 14-yarder as San Francisco drove as close as the Bucs 7 before Akers kicked his second field goal of the day.


Fourth quarter
41-3 49ers 14:52 4 plays, 36 yards, 1:15
Vernon Davis 14-yard pass from Alex Smith (David Akers kick). Key plays: After a Mike Williams fumble at the Tampa Bay 36, it appeared the Bucs had held the 49ers to a field goal. But LB Dekoda Watson was flagged for leverage — jumping on the back of other players in an effort to block the kick — giving San Francisco a first down at the Bucs 14. Smith hit a wide open Davis for the score on the next play.
48-3 49ers 3:48 11 plays, 90 yards, 6:09
Anthony Dixon 1-yard run (David Akers kick). Key plays: Backup RB Kendall Hunter picked up 44 yards on a sweep, and backup QB Colin Kaeper­nick connected with Josh Morgan for a 19-yard gain to the 1.
