The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Seahawks 21-13 in Brock Purdy’s 2nd game since taking over for the ailing Garoppolo. The victory, San Francisco’s eighth consecutive, gave the San Fransisco 49ers the NFC West title and a spot in the postseason.
Just 3 days after tossing 2 touchdown passes and adding yet another on the ground in 49ers’ rout of Tom Brady as well as the Buccaneers, Brock Purdy once again exceeded all expectations that went with Mr. Irrelevant label he earned in April.
After a brief, unsuccessful opening drive, Brock Purdy drove the San Fransisco 49ers down the field on an eighty-six-yard march that took nine plays and was completed by a twenty-eight-yard td throw to Kittle across the middle of the field to give his team a seven to zero lead. Just after Seattle bit on the double pump fake from Brock Purdy, Kittle was just as wide as he might possibly be.
Brock Prudy Gave San Fransisco 49ers 7th Win In A Row:
With the exception of a thirty-eight-yard field goal made late in the q2, the Seattle Seahawks’ offense stalled out for the first thirty minutes. They managed 3.6 yard every play in the opening half on their 1st four possessions, which all ended with punts after little more than 5 plays apiece. In the dying seconds of the 1st half, Niners lb Dre Greenlaw recovered a Homer fumble, ending a potential drive to score just before halftime.
The 49ers led 14-3 at halftime thanks to a simple one-yard td run by Christian McCaffrey that was made possible by that mistake.
On the Niners’ opening drive of the 2nd half, Brock Purdy used his link with Kittle to place the game beyond reach. For a fifty-four-yard score, he again hit Kittle open wide, but this time mostly on sideline. Just one minute into the q3, the score handed the San Fransisco 49ers a 21-3 advantage.
