The 26-24 defeat was San Francisco’s fifth in a row by three points or fewer, marking the first time in NFL history a team did that. San Francisco lost 23-3 in its opener to Carolina and looked absolutely hapless in doing so but has been outscored by only 13 points in the gut-wrenching stretch.

[Baker] kind of made a beeline for Uga, who had his back turned to him originally, Seiler said. It was a big, loud noise since he scored. It startled him. If Uga hadn’t landed, he would have grabbed Baker right in the crotch, and that would have been a painful thing. But he ran out of rope.
The Big 12 has a tradition of foxes running out during games.
He’s playing really well, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. He’s really doing everything we ask him to do. He makes so many plays within the scheme, throwing the ball to the right guy on a consistent basis. And then when things break down, making great plays with his feet and his arm out of the pocket.
Jacksonville, on the other hand, has had no problem integrating rookie running back Leonard Fournette into its offense. Fournette has 596 yards and six touchdowns on the ground in six games, starting last week’s game with a 75-yard scoring run.
Jacksonville’s other big addition, defensive end Calais Campbell, has eight sacks in six games and will be a source of worry for Indianapolis all day.
