A statistical look at Carlos Hyde’s big day in loss to the Jets

Dec 11, 2016 at 9:18 PM--


San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 193 yards on 17 carries in the team's 23-17 overtime loss to the New York Jets at Levi's Stadium. It may have been a lone bright spot in the 49ers' performance on Sunday. Hyde didn't sound too impressed by the performance following the game. "It doesn't really matter," he told reporters. "I'd take the win over the stats any day. I really wanted to win that one. I wanted to win all of them. The stats don't really matter. I'm just trying to win.'"

Regardless of the result, Hyde's performance on Sunday was impressive. How impressive was it? Here is a look at some of the statistics from today's game that Hyde contributed to and where they place in 49ers history.

"Hyde produced the NFL's top elusive rating from Week 14 after averaging an astounding 8.0 yards after contact per attempt and collecting 78.1 percent of his yardage on runs of 15-plus yards," wrote Wes Huber of Pro Football Focus.

The 49ers offense as a whole rushed for a season-high 248 yards on 27 attempts. That's an average of 9.2 yards per carry. The 248 rushing yards are most in a game by the 49ers since December 20, 2014, when they had 355 rushing yards against the San Diego Chargers.

The 9.2 yards per carry are the second-highest single game average by the team in 49ers history. For the record, you will have to go all the way back to a 1952 matchup with the then-Dallas Texans (would become the Kansas City Chiefs) when the 49ers averaged 11 yards per carry.

The 193 yards eclipsed his previous career high of 168 yards that came during a Week 1 victory last season against the Minnesota Vikings. The performance was his second 100-yard rushing game of the season and just the third of his career. It ranks as the sixth-most rushing yards in a single game in 49ers history.

Most Single Game Rushing Yards in 49ers History
Player Opp Date Atts Yds Avg TDs
Frank Gore vs. Sea. 11/19/06 24 212 8.8 0

Delvin Williams at StL 10/31/76 34 194 5.7 3
Carlos Hyde vs. NYJ 12/11/16 17 193 11.4 0

Hyde's 11.4 yards per carry against the Jets ranks as the fifth-highest single game performance in 49ers history (minimum 10 attempts).

Highest Single-Game Rushing Average in 49ers History
Player Opp Date Atts Yds Avg TDs
Joe Perry vs. Det. 11/2/58 13 174 13.4 1
Frank Gore vs. Sea. 9/20/09 16 207 12.9 2
Wilbur Jackson vs. NO 11/27/77 16 190 11.9 2
Hugh McElhenny at Chi. 10/17/54 10 114 11.4 2
Carlos Hyde vs. NYJ 12/11/16 17 193 11.4 0

Hyde's 193 rushing yards against the Jets is the fifth-highest single game performance by any running back this season. Surprisingly, none of the top four were against the 49ers, who rank last in rushing yards allowed.

Most Rushing Yards in a Game This Season
Player Date Atts Yds Avg TDs
RB Le'Veon Bell (Pit.) 12/11/16 38 236 6.2 3
RB Jay Ajayi (Mia.) 10/23/16 28 214 7.6 1
RB Jay Ajayi (Mia.) 10/16/16 25 204 8.1 2
RB Melvin Gordon (SD) 11/6/16 32 196 6.1 1
RBCarlosHyde (SF) 12/11/16 17 193 11.4 0

Hyde's 141 yards in the first half were the most by a 49ers running back since RB Frank Gore rushed for 148 yards and a touchdown in the first half of a 2006 matchup with the Detroit Lions. The 49ers won that game 19-13.

Can 49ers WR Jauan Jennings build off big game vs. Saints?

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Nov 29

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings was the team's leading pass-catcher on Sunday, hauling in six passes for 49 yards and a touchdown, his second-most productive total of the season. Jennings, who has been relatively quiet this season after a strong finish to his 2021 campaign, put together an emphatic performance where he was once again a reliable option at the sticks, converting five first downs on his six receptions. On the year, 17 of Jennings's 24 receptions have gone for first downs, despite the 2020 seventh-round pick averaging just 5.7 yards per reception. However, the 49ers wideout has struggled with drops this season, averaging a drop rate of over 20% through the first seven weeks of the season. Since then, despite
