SportsDash: The key to 49ers win streak is Jim Harbaugh’s footwear

NBC on Yahoo Sports

The 49ers came off their Week 9 bye with two consecutive losses but have since won three straight, including an enormous victory over the Seahawks last weekend. So what changed during their recent hot streak? Jim Harbaugh's footwear.

The coach, whose gameday attire above the ankles has never wavered, has taken to wearing cleats instead of sneakers because of the team's unblemished record when he dons the spikes.

SportsDash's Dave Briggs (@davebriggstv) examines Harbaugh's newest superstition and its effect on his team.
