With a 35-0 victory over St. Louis on Oct. 4, San Francisco (3-5) improved to 3-1 and sat alone atop the NFC West. Head Coach Mike Singletary’s team was clicking on both offense and defense, but it hasn’t won since.
The 49ers, who haven’t made the playoffs since 2002, lost 34-27 on Sunday against Tennessee, which got its first road win and second overall. Alex Smith threw two interceptions in the final 6:24 and three total, fumbled twice and was sacked four times.
Overall, the 49ers committed four turnovers - leading to 24 points for the Titans - and have turned the ball over 11 times during their four-game skid. They had just two turnovers in their first four games.
