Lions Vs. 49ers Score Update: San Francisco Leads Detroit At Halftime, 14-6

A Frank Gore rushing touchdown marked the only score of the second quarter, and the San Francisco 49ers lead the Detroit Lions at halftime, 14-6.

The 49ers began the second quarter with a first-and-goal on the Detroit one-yard line. They wasted little time, punching it in on a Frank Gore touchdown run on the first play of the quarter to extend their lead, 14-6.

After a short Lions possession which resulted in a punt, the 49ers quickly moved into Detroit territory once again behind Alex Smith completions to Mario Manningham and Randy Moss. However, the drive stalled just past midfield, and San Francisco was forced to punt.

Detroit regained possession and began an 11-play, 65-yard drive. The Lions were stopped at San Francisco's 22-yard line following consecutive Matthew Stafford incompletions, and the resulting Jason Hanson 40-yard field goal was no good as it clanked off the upright and fell harmlessly to the ground.

Detroit kept San Francisco off the board for the remaining three minutes of the first half, keeping their halftime deficit at a manageable eight points.
