49ers run past Jets

Tuesday, October 2, 2001

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Efficiency overcame emotion Monday night as the San Francisco 49ers beat the Jets 19-17 in New York's first home game since the terrorist attacks.

The 49ers (2-1) rushed for 233 yards behind rookie Kevin Barlow and veteran Garrison Hearst.

Jose Cortez kicked four field goals and the 49ers throttled New York's unimaginative offense in beating the Jets (1-2) on the road for the fifth straight time.
