The San Francisco 49ers fell to 2-1 after suffering their first loss of the season, a 30-28 defeat at home against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

Quick Takeaways


Jimmy Garoppolo was among the two lowest-graded offensive players. The 49ers quarterback had some big plays but also produced some costly mistakes. He was sacked four times, threw an interception, and had that costly fourth-quarter fumble. It was about as up-and-down of a performance as Garoppolo has had.

Tight end George Kittle was among the three highest-graded offensive players for the second time this season, ranking as the highest-graded player on offense against the Packers.

Trent Williams hasn't earned an overall grade of lower than 81.8 this season, showing that he remains one of the best tackles in the game. The veteran offensive lineman's 93.2 overall grade for this season is the highest of his career.

Tackle Mike McGlinchey has seen a steady improvement since his shaky start in Week 1. That includes pass-blocking grades of 73.7 and 71.5 in the last two games.

Norman was the team's highest-graded player. However, he left the game early due to an injury. It was a costly loss for the defense, which struggled to stop Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the end.

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead is quietly having a fantastic season. His 84.6 overall grade is closer to his 2019 production, and his pass-rushing grade of 86.8 this season is a career-high.

49ers-Cardinals: Players, coaches praise Trey Lance after first NFL start

By Kirk Larrabee

Trey Lance's first NFL start was far from perfect, but it was good enough to leave a positive impression on those who were playing with and against him on the field. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with zero touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while also leading both teams in rushing with 16 carries for 89 yards. Following the game, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters he felt Lance played well overall despite the first quarter interception that the Cardinals turned into their first touchdown. "I thought he did some really good things," Shanahan said. "Definitely wasn't perfect, which no one ever has been. That first pick I thought just sailed on him. He was going to the right spot but it



49ers great Jerry Rice shares why QB transitions can be challenging for players

NFL legend Jerry Rice has witnessed a San Francisco 49ers quarterback transition before — but on a much grander scale. For him, it was watching one future Hall of Fame quarterback succeed another future Hall of Fame quarterback. There is yet another transition taking place in Santa Clara, this time from Jimmy Garoppolo, a quarterback who helped guide the 49ers to a Super Bowl just two seasons ago, to rookie Trey Lance. The topic has been discussed at length. When should it happen? How should it happen? Most of the quarterback discussion is done with an outside perspective. This week, Rice joined the 49ers Talk podcast to share the behind-the-scenes perspective and what a quarterback transition is like for players. "It's kind of hard to

Another week, another close loss, and another game with multiple missed opportunities for the 49ers. It's been the same narrative during the 49ers' current three-game losing streak, and Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals now puts the team at 2-3 on the season as it heads into its bye week. Huge news came Monday afternoon, as Kyle Shanahan noted that rookie quarterback Trey Lance suffered a left knee sprain and will be out for 1-2 weeks, leaving Nate Sudfeld as the only healthy quarterback currently on the roster. But, we'll get to the future later. First, let's break down Sunday's loss with three areas of needed improvement and four positives that came out of the game.
