Following the San Francisco 49ers disappointing 24-13 loss on Sunday to the Oakland Raiders, Frank Gore insisted that he and the team would not give up on the season.
“I’ll keep fighting with my teammates,” Gore said. “I’m going to give my teammates 110 percent.”
At 7-6, the 49ers will likely need to win their final three games to have a shot at a postseason berth. San Francisco is three games out of first place in the NFC West and two games out of the final Wild Card spot. Multiple losses from Arizona, Detroit, Philadelphia, Seattle and Dallas would help the 49ers chances.
“I’ll see how the chips fall, and hopefully other teams help us,” Gore said. “I hope it happens. We’ll have to move forward from this one, but it’s tough.
“It’s my last year under contract, and I want to go out and at least get a shot to hold the trophy.”
After being held to a season-low three points in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13, the 49ers offense started off well on Sunday, scoring a touchdown on its third possession of the game. San Francisco capped a 7-play, 60-yard drive with an 8-yard Bruce Miller touchdown catch.
But after that score, the 49ers would add just a pair of field goals the rest of the way.
“I don’t feel like we’re us,” Gore said. “It’s hard to get in a rhythm. As players, you have to be in a rhythm to be successful on the field. It’s been tough all year.”
Gore finished his day rushing 12 times for 63 yards.
San Francisco heads to Seattle for a Week 15 showdown with the Seahawks before finishing the regular season with consecutive home games versus the San Diego Chargers and Cardinals.
“We just have to clean up the mistakes and move forward,” Gore said.
