Finally, the San Francisco 49ers (1-9) are in the win column.

QB C.J. Beathard paced a balanced offensive attack that racked up 474 total yards and 31 points, which was more than enough to beat the lifeless New York Giants (1-8), 31-21. Beathard looked poised and in control all afternoon, completing 19-of-25 passes for 288 yards and three total touchdowns (two passing, one rushing). Maybe most impressive of all was the fact that Beathard was able to spread the ball around so efficiently, as eight different receivers recorded a reception. The rookie quarterback also completed three passes of 40-yards or more, two of which went for scores.

The San Francisco offense was also dominant on the ground, as the team ran for 186 yards on 33 carries (5.63 yards per attempt). RB Carlos Hyde paced the attack with 98 yards on 17 attempts, while RB Matt Breida added 55 yards of his own including a 33-yard touchdown run. The complete effort was a big reason why the 49ers had one of their best offensive outputs in recent memory.

Defensively, the unit bent but didn't break. The Giants were able to move the ball (374 total yards) but were held to 13 points until the final minute of the game. DL Ronald Blair made his case to be part of the plan in 2018, as he recorded two sacks, one of which resulted in an Eli Manning fumble that the 49ers recovered deep in their own territory. Rookie S Adrian Colbert also had a strong game, showing off his range and big hitting ability. Another rookie, LB Reuben Foster, made his impact felt with a team-high 10 total tackles.

The win will give the 49ers a much-needed sigh of relief as they head into their bye. The week off will also give some of their injured players time to heal, as DL Solomon Thomas, DL Tank Carradine, WR Trent Taylor and TE George Kittle could return the next time the team takes the field in Week 12. It will also be interesting to see how head coach Kyle Shanahan handles his quarterback situation when play resumes, as he has the option of sticking with Beathard after a good game or handing the reigns to Jimmy Garoppolo for the foreseeable future.

PFF predicts Dre Greenlaw to be 49ers' 2020 breakout player

By David Bonilla
Sep 9, 2020

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus went around the league and predicted one potential breakout player for each team during the 2020 season. For the San Francisco 49ers, he picked second-year linebacker Dre Greenlaw. Treash wrote the following of the selection: "Greenlaw surprised as a fifth-round rookie last year with how well he performed in Kwon Alexander's absence. He shined in coverage, posting a 72.6 grade in that facet throughout the 49ers' regular-season and postseason run (15th-best at the position). Greenlaw limits yards after the catch and has a clear nose for the ball. Including the postseason, he racked up 22 passing stops, which were the third-most at the position. He's already a top-25 linebacker in the NFL and is capable of

Rapoport discusses Jimmy Garoppolo's inconsistent performance during 49ers-Cardinals

By David Bonilla
Sep 14, 2020

NFL insider Ian Rapoport seemed a little surprised to hear about Monday morning's local criticisms of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo following the San Francisco 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. "Is that what's going on this morning? Is it Jimmy G is terrible?" Rapoport asked on KNBR's Murph & Mac show Monday morning. While Garoppolo's numbers, at first glance, look comparable to his Cardinals counterpart, Kyler Murray, anyone who watched the game knows that the latter was the better quarterback on the football field at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. Much of that had to do with the nearly 100 rushing yards Murray had against the 49ers defense. You throw out his two kneel-downs to end the game, and he is right at the century mark. "I
