Here Comes the San Francisco 49ers

Glenn Kaplan

The San Francisco 49ers dominated the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night football. San Francisco was on the road on Sunday afternoon against the Jacksonville Jaguars and there were no signs of a letdown at all. The 49ers dominated Jacksonville by a final score of 30-10.

San Francisco is on a two-game winning streak and they are now at .500. They are in the hunt for the seventh seed in the NFC. This team was in the Super Bowl just two years ago. Don’t look now, but this team could get hot and potentially make a run. Kyle Shanahan is pressing the right buttons for now.

A lot of people wanted Jimmy Garoppolo benched for Trey Lance after they lost to the Arizona Cardinals without Kyler Murray and with Colt McCoy at the quarterback position, but it appeared to be their wake-up call.

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 16-of-22 passes for 176 yards and two touchdowns. He threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Aiyuk in the second quarter and a 1-yard touchdown pass to George Kittle in the third quarter.

Aiyuk finished with seven receptions for 85 yards receiving and a touchdown.

Kittle finished the game with four receptions for 34 yards receiving and a touchdown.

Deebo Samuel finished the game with 79 yards rushing on eight carries and a touchdown. He was the San Francisco 49ers leading rusher. Samuel scored on a 25-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. They scored 17 in the second quarter and they outscored the Jacksonville Jaguars 17-3 in that frame.

San Francisco’s running game also had Jeff Wilson rushed for 50 yards on 19 carries.

Trey Sermon also rushed for 32 yards on 10 carries.

The San Francisco 49ers’ defense held Trevor Lawrence to 16-of-25 passes for 158 yards.

James Robinson had the lone touchdown for Jacksonville on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter when the football game was out of reach. He rushed for 29 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown.

Marvin Jones Jr. was Jacksonville’s leading receiver with four receptions for 52 yards receiving.

The San Francisco 49ers (5-5) will host the Minnesota Vikings (5-5) next Sunday in a very huge game for potential wild card implications in the NFC.

The Jacksonville Jaguars (2-8) next game will be at home next Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons (4-6).
