Trent Williams’ block went viral during 49ers vs. Cardinals

Sep 14, 2020 at 6:07 AM--


There wasn't a whole lot of good to take away from the San Francisco 49ers' 24-20 defeat against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon, and fans may not be ready to look at that game yet. Images of quarterback Kyler Murray evading 49ers defenders or wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins torching defensive backs may still be fresh in your minds.

But how about just one memorable play? And maybe not the one you would first expect.

No, it's not running back Raheem Mostert reaching a speed of nearly 23 MPH in a 76-yard touchdown run. It's a block by new 49ers left tackle Trent Williams, who absolutely obliterated Cardinals linebacker Jordan Hicks on an end-around run by tight end George Kittle.

The play caught the eye of former NFL offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz, who posted it on Twitter for everyone to enjoy.

Update: The video was deleted, so here is another post that featured the block.


"This is incredible. I can't stop watching," wrote Schwartz.


Williams and the 49ers look to rebound from Sunday's season-opening loss with back-to-back road wins at MetLife Stadium over the next two Sundays.

NBC honored the 49ers pass catchers with the following image of the "YAC Bros," which in this instance is a fun play on Super Mario Bros. YAC, of course, means yards after the catch — something the 49ers' offensive weapons pride themselves on. The photo features tight end George Kittle and wide receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. Aiyuk, by the way, is leaping over a charging ram, much like the rookie receiver

The two San Francisco 49ers tackles — and the whole offensive line, really — have been heavily criticized for their performances on Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. Veteran tackle Trent Williams hasn't been immune to the criticism. Some called it one of the worst performances they've seen from Williams, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, during his illustrious career. One reporter on Thursday bluntly asked Williams about the Week 4 performance, saying, "Most of us haven't seen you basically get beaten like that in a long time." Williams responded by defending his play against the Eagles defense. "It depends on what you mean," Williams said. "If you're talking about pass [protection], I was credited for half a sack from the
