By rule of the most important stat in football -- turnover margin -- the 49ers not only should have lost to Pittsburgh on Sunday, they probably should have lost handily. Instead, these Niners again found a way to win and for as ugly as it might have been, it was a victory they wouldn't have gotten a season ago. Overcoming five turnovers and coming up with timely drives and a pair of takeaways of their own yielded the team's first 3-0 start since 1998. "It's just the mindset of the locker room," quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said. "Complementary football... that's how you create a good football team. We're getting there." Indeed, there's still plenty of work for the 49ers to do moving forward, work that begins even on next week's bye. But the early returns indicate this is a team that's finally moving in the right direction.

Not sure I understood that final offensive sequence from the Browns. First-and-goal with 43 seconds left, all three timeouts remaining, and not one running play?
Maybe the Browns aren't as good as advertised, but they won't live up to any of their advance notices if the offensive line doesn't improve. Mayfield is starting to look like a deer in the headlights, and all of those homerun threats they acquired aren't going to be much good to them if the quarterback doesn't have time to scan the field.
