Niners touch down in London

One day removed from throttling the Tennessee Titans 31-17 in Nashville, the 49ers got off a plane in London to begin their weeklong stay overseas before taking on the winless Jacksonville Jaguars in famous Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

Day 1 in England included a visit to English soccer team Tottenham's facilities where 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other players interacted with local school children.

The 49ers are no strangers to spending a lengthy period of time on the road as they have spent time in between back-to-back East Coast games in Youngstown, Ohio, the past couple of seasons.

The 49ers come into this week's game in playing their best football of the season, riding a four-game winning streak where they have outscored opponents 132-51. The victory against the Titans was arguably the most complete of the season. Kaepernick finished Sunday's game with a 93.2 passer rating, the defense kept Tennessee off the scoreboard until the fourth quarter and the special teams pitched in with a late TD.

Now, the 49ers are trying to put that game in the rear-view mirror.

“The most important thing is we got the win and now we have the long trip to London and we have to get back to work and get ready for the Jaguars,” 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis said.

The 49ers last played in London in 2010 where they beat the Denver Broncos 24-16.
