LANDOVER, Md., Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Frank Gore rushed for over 100 yards for the fifth straight week Sunday, sparking the San Francisco 49ers' 19-11 victory over Washington.

Alex Smith threw for 200 yards and a touchdown and David Akers connected on four field goals as the 49ers (7-1) collected a sixth straight win for the first time since an 11-game streak in 1997.
