49ers had lowest minimum win probability of any team to eventually win a game of all-time, per Next Gen Stats

According to Next Gen Stats, The 49ers had the lowest minimum win probability of any team to eventually win a game in the NGS era, including the famous Miami Miracle and Super Bowl LI.


After the 49ers punted on 4th & 16 with 1:57 remaining, they had just a 0.4% chance to win the game, being down 24-17. To come back, they had to complete multiple tasks, and accomplished them all.


To cap it all off, the 49ers' season was on the line, as Sunday's win clinched a playoff spot as the 6th seed in the NFC, where a loss would've left them on the outside looking in, given that the New Orleans Saints won their matchup against the Atlanta Falcons 30-20.

In their comeback, San Francisco was able to prevent a Rams first down, forcing a punt, before Jimmy Garoppolo and Co. marched down the field with a number of long completions, and ending in a Jauan Jennings touchdown.

A sack of Matthew Stafford at the end of regulation forced overtime, where the 49ers received the ball, drove down the field and kicked a field goal to take the lead before rookie cornerback Ambry Thomas intercepted Stafford to seal the victory for San Francisco.

What an exhilarating, game-of-the-year, type of matchup.

Chris Simms lacks confidence in San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. The NBC Sports analyst recently stated that he wouldn't have drafted the player had the decision been his to make. "I see the potential. I get it," Simms recently said on his podcast, Chris Simms Unbuttoned. "I'm just not sure it's going to all come together."

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I

49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about
