Shutdown Corner

Vernon Davis is a man who learns from experience. During a Week 1 touchdown celebration, he was stuffed by a goalpost when trying to dunk the football. He scored early in the San Francisco 49ers' 27-19 win over the Detroit Lions. This time, he didn't push into the paint and force the dunk. He pulled up for a jumper.

Davis finished the game with five catches for 73 yards and two touchdowns. Add in the jumpshot, and it was a successful day for the longtime 49er.
