Quick Takeaways

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's overall grade of 56.6 was his lowest since his poor Week 7 performance, partly due to his first interceptions since Week 13. Garoppolo completed 26 of his 35 passes for 322 yards and a touchdown, plus the two costly picks.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel was the game's second-highest graded player. Only Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown's 90.7 overall grade was higher. Samuel's 90.1 grade was his highest since Week 10 (90.6) and his second-highest mark of the season. He hauled in 9 receptions for 159 yards while adding five carries for 32 yards. Thursday was Samuel's fourth game this season of accumulating 150-or-more yards, the most in the NFL.

For the fifth consecutive week, Tackle Tom Compton was among the 49ers' three highest-graded offensive players. He has earned grades of 74.1-or-higher in each of those games, with his career-high of 95.9 coming in Week 15.

Defensive tackle D.J. Jones quietly continues to have one of his best seasons. His 82.4 overall grade was his second-highest this season, and he was the highest-graded defender of the game.

Defensive end Jordan Willis recorded his second sack of the season and has 7.5 career sacks. He finished the game with two tackles, a tackle for a loss, and a quarterback hit.

Why PFF believes Trey Lance is in a good situation with 49ers in 2022

Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. Those are the former first-round quarterbacks set to enter their second NFL seasons. Lawrence and Jones started all 17 games in 2021. Wilson started 13, and Fields started 10. Lance earned just two starts. However, that doesn't mean the soon-to-be 22-year-old San Francisco 49ers quarterback isn't set up for success. Analyst Sam Monson ranked the current team situations for the NFL's top second-year quarterbacks in 2022. Zach Wilson topped the list after the New York Jets' offseason efforts to build around their own 22-year-old quarterback. Right behind him, though, is Lance, who comes in at No. 2. That makes sense. After all, he's on a team that has been to the NFC title game twice in the past three

Why PFF believes 49ers signing Julio Jones makes sense

With the free-agency frenzy long gone and the NFL Draft behind us, NFL teams will move toward tweaking their rosters in preparation for the 2022 season. It's worth noting that there are still some well-known free agents awaiting offers—names like Jadeveon Clowney and Odell Beckham Jr. Veteran center J.C. Tretter might make sense for the San Francisco 49ers. The team is uncertain about the future of Alex Mack. General manager John Lynch is sounding less confident about the possibility of his starting center returning for his 14th NFL season. However, it's not Tretter that Pro Football Focus analyst Ben Linsey believes would be a good signing by the 49ers. Instead,
