It is the 49ers' best start to a season since 1990.

The San Francisco 49ers are off to their best start to a season in almost 30 years after thrashing the Cleveland Browns 31-3.

It is the first time since 1990 the 49ers have gone 4-0 as they remain one of only two teams still to boast a 100 per cent record this campaign, along with the New England Patriots (5-0).

The Browns proved second best from the outset, with 49ers running back Matt Breida running in an 83-yard touchdown on San Francisco's opening play.

It was Breida's first score of the season, and his second came soon after with a five-yard touchdown catch on third-and-goal for a 14-0 lead.

By half-time, the home side racked up 185 rushing yards, the final 19 of which came on Tevin Coleman's first touchdown of the campaign, and went into the break with a  21-3 lead.

San Francisco added a fourth score in the third quarter through George Kittle to wrap up the win.

Cleveland, whose only points came from a Austin Seibert field goal, were unable to close the gap as they fell to 2-3.
