But the toughest pill for the locker room to swallow after the game, even more so than the unsettling win, was the loss of veteran cornerback Jason Verrett.
On Monday, Shanahan confirmed the news of an ACL tear for the cornerback, a heartbreaking season-ending injury for Verrett, who has battled through injuries throughout his NFL career.

Kyle Shanahan Provides Updates on Raheem Mostert, Emmanuel Moseley and Others
The 49ers were without Emmanuel Moseley in Detroit as the corner has been working through a knee injury. Shanahan is expecting the corner to return "soon" and said he's "holding out hope" he will be available on Sunday.
Raheem Mostert appeared in just four snaps on offense before leaving Sunday's game with an apparent knee injury. According to Shanahan, Mostert suffered a chipped knee cartilage which will sideline the running back for eight weeks. Mostert was off to a hot start against the Lions in the 49ers second drive, posting two gains of 11 and 9 yards, respectively, en route to San Francisco's first score of the game.
