Quick Takeaways

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo went 23-of-32 for 316 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions, earning an overall grade of 68.7, a better grade than his 56.6 mark against the Tennessee Titans in Week 16. His Week 18 grade was his second-highest in his last four outings, and he played through a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb.

A trio of wide receivers earned the offense's highest grades. They are Trent Sherfield, Jauan Jennings, and Brandon Aiyuk. Deebo Samuel just missed the top five, earning the offense's sixth-highest grade (74.4). The four receivers combined for 309 receiving yards with Aiyuk leading the team with 107 receiving yards. Jennings hauled in two touchdown passes. One from Garoppolo and the other from Samuel.

Sherfield tied Rams tight end Tyler Higbee for the game's highest grade (89.9).

Linebacker Fred Warner and defensive lineman Arden Key combined to bring down Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford. Key finished the regular season with 6.5 sacks and now has 9.5 in his career. Warner now has 4.5 career sacks.

Linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles earned his second-highest overall grade of the season, albeit in just nine snaps. Defensive tackle Kevin Givens earned his third-highest overall grade of the season, also during limited playing time.

Linebacker Dre Greenlaw has only appeared in three games this season. However, his Week 18 outing earned him his highest grade of the season, despite being responsible for two penalties.

Defensive lineman Kentavius Street's 75.3 overall grade was his highest of the season and best mark since Week 10 of the 2020 season.

Kyle Juszczyk's 48.8 overall grade was his lowest mark of the season, and the sixth time this season the fullback has earned a grade of 58.8-or-lower. However, he finished the season with a pass-blocking grade of 84.2, his highest pass-blocking grade since 2016 with the Baltimore Ravens.
