Gabbert: 3rd-down struggles caused by errors on early downs (The Associated Press)

Over the past two games, the 49ers converted just 4 of 27 attempts in lopsided losses to Cleveland and Cincinnati. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who will make his seventh start in Detroit on Sunday since taking over for Colin Kaepernick, said the struggles on third down are a result of what happens on earlier downs. Six of the 49ers’ 11 penalties in the 24-14 loss Sunday to the Bengals came on offense, including two in the first quarter that set up third-and-long situations.
