49ers trounce Jets 34-0

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.— The New York Jets were a delicious treat for the San Francisco 49ers.

San Francisco used a solid running game, a smothering defense, a little bit of the wildcat-style offense and even blocked a punt to cruise to a 34-0 victory. That romp came a week after a loss at Minnesota in which the 49ers were just as outclassed as the Jets were Sunday.

"For sure, the whole week there was more of an edge; it was just a bad taste in your mouth," Alex Smith said. "I don't think that goes away in one day. We wanted to be 3-1 and got it done."

They got it done so emphatically that Jets coach Rex Ryan was visibly shaken by the lopsided defeat, so much so that he struggled to describe how poorly his Jets (2-2) performed.

"It's obviously unacceptable," Ryan said. "It starts with the coaches. The players ... they've got to dig deep, look down at the themselves."
