The San Francisco 49ers' defense dominated Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets, forcing four turnovers in a 34-0 San Francisco victory.

The San Francisco 49ers bounced back in a big way after losing for the first time in Week 3, beating the New York Jets 34-0 on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.

The 49ers gained 379 yards, spreading the ball out to a number of players. Alex Smith was unspectacular, but solid, completing 12 passes for 143 yards. Backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick rushed five times for 50 yards, including the game's first touchdown.

San Francisco also got rushing touchdowns from Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter. The defense scored once when Carlos Rogers picked up a fumble by the injured Santonio Holmes and returned it 51 yards to the end zone. David Akers tacked on field goals of 36 and 50 yards.

The 49ers are now 3-1 on the season while the Jets go to 2-2.
