Following a tripping penalty on Walker, the 49ers faced third and 10 at their own 3-yard line. The call was a handoff to Kendall Hunter, who was supposed to follow his blocks left. The Bills, however, clogged the left side and Hunter cut back to the right where he found enough space to pick up the first down. The reason he had so much space to the right? Davis had blocked Mario Williams, responsible for back-side pursuit, practically out of the television screen. Later in the quarter, left tackle Joe Staley was blocking Williams one-on-one on the touchdown toss from Alex Smith to Michael Crabtree. Smith, who had been sacked 12 times heading into Sunday, was not sacked at all by the Bills. He had nearly four seconds to throw on the touchdown to Crabtree.

The article give mad props to Anthony Davis.....I really proud of that dude. He caught a lot of heat on these boards his rookie year and even until recently.
Those 2 back to back conversions on 3rd and 10 from our own goal line were really impressive. By the way who hasn't taken heat from the arm chair GMs on here? Anthony, Aldon, Vernon, Crabtree, Alex, Culliver, Frank Gore (when drafted), etc. Dang near every one of our picks was written off or question. Not sure why people didn't realize that Anthony was raw, and only 20 years old with potential. People expected him to come in from day one and dominate. Granted I was one who thought if he didn't step up this year it might be time to think about moving him to guard but I wasn't ready to call him a bust or throw him aside like a lot of people where. I actually think we would still have had a really good right side if Boone went to RT and Davis at RG.
