There are no changes to the 49ers’ injury report. LB Manny Lawson, T Jonas Jennings and CB Shawntae Spencer are still out.
Running back Frank Gore will be a busy man on Sunday against the Patriots. Gore leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 412 yards 525 yards in four games. He’ll undoubtedly be the focus of Bill Belichick’s defense.

This is not a GPS game, per se, but you can certainly look at this four-week stretch that begins Sunday as an indicator of where the 49ers stand in the NFL.
After watching and re-watching every play from the 49ers’ 31-13 victory over the Lions on Sunday, it’s time to toss around a few kudos and some observations:
