Watch: Ross Dwelley scores first career touchdown, helps wake up slumbering 49ers offense vs. Cardinals

Nov 17, 2019 at 2:22 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers offense hadn't done much against the Arizona Cardinals. That changed when the unit took over with 9:03 remaining in the first half and the 49ers down 16-0 to the underdog Cardinals.

The drive started with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo hitting wide receiver Richie James for an impressive 57-yard gain. Four plays later, the 49ers signal-caller hit second-year tight end Ross Dwelley, whose role increased in the absence of Pro Bowl starter George Kittle, in the end zone to finally get the 49ers on the scoreboard.


The four-yard score was Dwelley's first of his NFL career, and San Francisco now trails 16-7.

Dwelley entered the game with 10 receptions for 52 yards this season.

Mike Clay of ESPN continued his annual tradition of ranking each positional group for all 32 NFL teams, looking at 10 key offensive and defensive positions. During the process, he also commented on each category's best, shakiest, and "on the rise" groups, along with the ones to watch. The strength of the San Francisco 49ers defense last season — its edge rushers — came in as Clay's best in the game when compared to those from around the league. "Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead and Dee Ford combine to form the league's best edge rushing trio," wrote Clay. "Bosa and Armstead combined for 19.0 sacks and 105 pass-rush wins

ESPN names 49ers offense as NFL's best in this personnel grouping

By David Bonilla
Aug 3, 2020

ESPN on Monday picked the NFL's best offenses at every personnel grouping. Not only did the San Francisco 49ers run their unit in 21 personnel (2 RBs, 1 TE, 2 WRs) more than any other team, they did it the best, according to the sports site. Head coach Kyle Shanahan values his fullback, Kyle Juszczyk, and the importance of having a lead blocker opening things up in the rushing attack. That can lead to significant gains by Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, or whoever is carrying the football. San Francisco recorded an NFL-leading 270 snaps out of 21 personnel last season while leading all teams with 153 rushing attempts,
