49ers' Gore wins weekly NFC honor

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The NFL has chosen 49ers running back Frank Gore as offensive player of the week for the NFC.

Kurt Warner also would have made a strong candidate after setting an NFL single-game record for completion percentage. But Gore's 79- and 80-yard touchdown runs to beat a division opponent helped make him the choice.

Gore finished with 16 carries for 207 yards and two touchdowns.
