Ex-49er Gore celebrates with son after game-winning TD
Frank Gore celebrate with son after scoring game-winning TD for Bills
Whenever Frank Gore decides to stop playing football, he will go into the 49ers Hall of Fame. He might even get elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
But those honors will have to wait because Gore can't quit the sport he loves.
And who could blame the 36-year-old? In his 15th NFL season, he's still productive.
With starting running back Devin Singletary sidelined due to a hamstring injury, Gore stepped in Sunday and carried the ball 14 times for 76 yards in the Bills' win over the Bengals. His 1-yard touchdown run with 1 minute, 50 seconds remaining ended up winning the game for Buffalo.
But the highlight of Gore's day came after the game was over.

Running backs don't typically make it to 36 years old, so we understand Gore wanting to savor these moments.
But Gore has defied father time, so he could have a lot more moments like this.Watch 49ers' Richie James, D.J. Reed do backflips after win vs. Steelers
There's jumping for joy, and then there's what Richie James did in the closing seconds of the 49ers' 24-20 victory over the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
As San Francisco approached its first 3-0 start since 1998, James stood several feet behind quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the 49ers' victory formation. After Garoppolo snapped the ball for the final time, James couldn't contain his excitement.

James wasn't the only one excited. Minutes later, he was joined by San Francisco defensive back D.J. Reed for a backflip competition in the end zone.

As things currently stand, the 49ers are one of six 3-0 teams in the league. They're one victory short of matching their win total from last season. You'd be doing backflips, too.[RELATED: Watch Jimmy G's game-winning TD pass to Pettis vs. Steelers]

Dante Pettis didn't have the best game on Sunday against the Steelers, but he made up for it in a big way.
With just over a minute remaining in the Week 3 contest and the game on the line, Pettis caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Jimmy Garoppolo to give the 49ers a 24-20 lead over Pittsburgh.

The 49ers' defense would preserve the win by stopping the Steelers on their final possession of the game.
"It feels good," Pettis said on the field at Levi's Stadium minutes later on 49ers Postgame Live. "It's been a rough start for me personally. Just gotta keep battling through things and the team's playing good, so that's all that matters."
Pettis finished the game with four catches on five targets for 20 yards and the one touchdown.
