Hill shines as red-hot 49ers hand reeling Jets second straight loss
SAN FRANCISCO -- From lineman Joe Staley's smart fumble recovery in the end zone to Shaun Hill's final touchdown pass, the San Francisco 49ers showed they're finally getting it together -- even if it's probably a bit too late to save their season.
• The 49ers won for the third time in four games, improving to 3-3 under Mike Singletary.
• Thomas Jones has now scored a touchdown in seven consecutive games, tying a Jets record. Santana Moss also did so in 2003.
• San Francisco is now 9-2 all-time against New York.
