The Niners are #1 in the entire NFL in the fewest yards per attempt (3.2) and 2nd in fewest yards given up per game( 84.9). By comparison the Vikings (who everyone always raves about being impossible to run against) give up 4.1 yards per carry.
The only way this could happen in a 3-4 defense is if our NT is a dominant player. He doesnt have the name like Vince Wilfolk or Casey Hampton but he is playing at that level right now.
