Ohio magic crosses state line for 49ers
PHILADELPHIA — To Jim Harbaugh and Alex Smith, this stunning rally was one for the road.
The 49ers lauded last week's temporary home in eastern Ohio, and how comfortable they felt in the second half in Philadelphia, where they rallied from a 20-point deficit.
"Thanks Youngstown, you've been good to us," first-year coach Harbaugh said about keeping the team in Ohio after its win last week at Cincinnati. "That's as good a win as I can ever remember being a part of."
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick wasn't hampered by his bruised right hand, throwing for a career-high 416 yards and two TDs and rushing for 75 yards. But Philly's defense faded and Frank Gore capped a 77-yard drive with a 12-yard TD run with 3 minutes left.
