49ers enjoy London experience after thrashing Jacksonville

SAN Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh left London yesterday with plenty of fond memories after his 49ers thrashed Jacksonville 42-10 in the latest NFL game to be played at Wembley Stadium.

And it wasn't just his team's clinical performance that left a lasting impression.

The atmosphere also won over Harbaugh, who said he felt as though he was at an Olympic medal ceremony when the American national anthem was followed by 'God Save the Queen'.

"It was an amazing experience for our players and me personally," Harbaugh said. "I really got a chill when that gal was singing God Save the Queen. Great experience."

A crowd of 83,559 turned out to watch 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (pictured) put on a clinic, scoring two touchdowns and finishing with 164 yards passing and 54 yards rushing. In other games, Kansas City remained the only unbeaten team after downing Cleveland 23-17, while Drew Brees threw five touchdown passes for New Orleans as the Saints improved to 6-1 with a 35-17 win against Buffalo.
