Jason Verrett, Mike McGlinchey shine, earn PFF’s highest grades from 49ers-Rams

Oct 19, 2020 at 9:23 AM--


Mike McGlinchey had a simple message for his critics after the San Francisco 49ers' 24-16 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night.


He was indeed.

McGlinchey earned Pro Football Focus' highest offensive grade from the game. According to the analytics site, his 86.1 overall grade was his best of this season and his best performance since Week 13 of last season against the Baltimore Ravens. McGlinchey didn't allow a single pressure from Rams defenders on 35 pass-block snaps and earned his second-highest run-block grade (84.9) of the season.

However, the 49ers' highest-graded player and the highest-graded player of the game was cornerback Jason Verrett. He finished the game with three tackles, an interception, and two passes defensed. Verrett didn't give up a reception on Sunday night.

The interception came at a critical moment in the fourth quarter and helped the 49ers regain control of the game.


"That fourth-and-(two) pick was probably the biggest play of the year," defensive lineman Arik Armstead said following the game. "That was amazing to see. Obviously, you saw how excited everybody was for him."

Brandon Aiyuk's spot on Pro Football Focus' list of highest-graded rookies remains secure despite not having played this weekend.

Jason Verrett embracing his healthy season with the 49ers

Cornerback Jason Verrett has struggled to get onto and stay on the football field during his NFL career. He was labeled as injury-prone after landing on injured reserve during five of his first six pro seasons. It was a bit of a surprise when the San Francisco 49ers re-signed Verrett to a one-year deal in April. It turned out to be a good move. Richard Sherman landed on injured reserve after Week 1, and Verrett has since filled in for the veteran, regaining the Pro Bowl form he displayed in 2015. "You're just so excited and so happy to see that because of everything he's been through," Sherman said last month. "I mean, some of the most devastating injuries after
