Critics are going to have an even tougher time saying the San Francisco 49ers haven't played any real competition during their win streak to start the 2019 season.

This, after the Niners moved to 7-0 on the season after defeating the Carolina Panthers at Levi's Stadium on Sunday, in which San Francisco dominated nearly all the action from opening kickoff to the final whistle. Carolina, now 4-3, entered the contest winners of four straight, boasting a quarterback, Kyle Allen, who had yet to toss an interception after taking over starting duties from the injured Cam Newton back in Week 3.

Both streaks came to an end, as the 49ers pulled off a 51-13 win in Week 8, also picking off Allen three times.

The 49ers dominated the first half of action, getting newly acquired wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders into the end zone on their first possession. From there, it was running back Tevin Coleman's show, as he managed three first-half touchdowns, two on the ground and one through the air to help the Niners get out to a dominant 27-3 first-half lead.

On defense, rookie EDGE Nick Bosa was an absolute force, picking up three sacks on the day, all of which came in the first half.

Defensive tackle Arik Armstead, meanwhile, also added two sacks of his own.

Carolina managed a mere 76 yards in the first half, thanks largely to Bosa and an effective San Francisco pass rush, which sacked Allen six times overall during the game.

Yet things got a bit dicey in the third quarter, though, as the Panthers sacked quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the end zone for a safety, which led to Carolina's following drive culminating in running back Christian McCaffrey getting in for a 40-yard touchdown run. The Panthers' subsequent two-point conversion attempt succeeded, which then set San Francisco's lead at 27-13.

Risking losing momentum after the Panthers netted 10 points off Niners mistakes, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and Co. marched down the field the following drive, which ended with wide receiver Deebo Samuel getting an inside handoff for a 20-yard touchdown run, making the game 34-13 in favor of San Francisco.

Garoppolo was 18-of-22 on the day for 175 yards, two touchdowns against one interception for a 111.2 passer rating. He did take three sacks, although those were almost entirely offset by what San Francisco's defense was able to do against Allen.

Allen passed for 153 yards and had a rating of 28.3.

One of Allen's tossed interceptions led directly to Coleman's fourth touchdown of the game, which came on a 1-yard interior run with 32 seconds left in the third quarter to put the 49ers up 41-13. But that wasn't quite as entertaining as Bosa recording his first NFL-level interception, which he returned for 46 yards to close out the quarter:

The Niners got three points off that takeaway to go up 44-13. With that lead, Garoppolo's day was done, giving way to backup quarterback Nick Mullens, whose first play resulted in yet another touchdown, this time to running back Raheem Mostert, pushing the score to a whopping 51-13.

And a perfect 7-0 record, too. Perhaps there aren't going to be as many naysayers now, as the Niners end Carolina's win streak and do so in dominant fashion.

Nick Bosa talks Chase Young impact; Trent Williams on crucial stretch for 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for a brutal three-game stretch that begins in Seattle on Thanksgiving night against the Seahawks. After that, the team will travel to Philadelphia for an NFC Championship Game rematch against the Eagles. Finally, they will host the Seahawks at Levi's Stadium. The bird-themed portion of the 2023 schedule continues with a Week 15 face-off against the Arizona Cardinals and a Week 16 showdown with the Baltimore Ravens. Luckily, the 49ers have been playing improved football since their bye week, ending a three-game losing streak with back-to-back victories. The defense has been much-improved in the last two outings, with many at least partially attributing this positive shift to the acquisition of defensive end Chase

Nick Bosa confident ahead of 49ers-Eagles matchup, surprised by Chase Young's quick impact

There was significant offseason banter between the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles following the NFC Championship Game. While the Eagles came out on top, the 49ers felt they couldn't showcase their true capabilities due to quarterback Brock Purdy's early-game UCL injury in his throwing arm. The two teams have been on a Week 13 collision course throughout the season, with the possibility of meeting again in the postseason. Sunday's highly anticipated game will showcase two red-hot teams, offering the 49ers a chance to demonstrate what might have been. "I ain't going to keep going on about what could've happened and what would've happened, but yeah, it would've definitely been a different outcome," remarked 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel during the

San Francisco 49ers fans would love to see their team knock off the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, avenging last season's playoff loss that ended their Super Bowl aspirations. However, for the players and coaches, it's just the next opponent on the schedule. The locker room remains focused on the bigger picture—winning a championship. The Eagles reached the Super Bowl last year but fell short against the Kansas City Chiefs. They beat the Chiefs in Week 11. "I mean, last year, it's over with," defensive end Nick Bosa told reporters before Wednesday's practice. "Neither team finished the job, so it's not like they're looking back and reminiscing on an NFC Championship win either. I'm

Nick Bosa praises Chase Young's early impact on 49ers

On Tuesday, Nick Bosa expressed his surprise at how rapidly pass rusher Chase Young has impacted the San Francisco 49ers' defense since the team traded for him last month. The 49ers' pressure rate has surged, and the defensive front has reached the opposing quarterback more regularly. Since Young's arrival, Bosa has recorded five sacks, a considerable improvement from the three he had before the trade. Bosa believes his former Ohio State teammate is developing into one of the league's most dominant pass rushers. "Just watching him on tape, I think he could be like one of the top elite pass rushers in the league. And he's starting to get the hang of the scheme," Bosa
