Below are the three lowest-graded 49ers players on defense.

Quick Takeaways

Let's start with the quarterbacks. Trey Lance earned an overall grade of 55.3 during his 16 snaps before suffering a season-ending broken ankle. Jimmy Garoppolo replaced the second-year quarterback, completing 13 of 21 pass attempts for 154 yards and a touchdown, on his way to an overall grade of 66.5. He also had a rushing touchdown. Garoppolo will be the 49ers' starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.

Defensive end Nick Bosa earned the game's highest overall grade thanks partly to his seven pressures, two sacks, three hits, and two hurries. In addition, Bosa earned an impressive pass-rushing grade of 90.2 in the game.

Defensive end Charles Omenihu earned the second-highest defensive grade in the game. He finished with three pressures, two hits, and a hurry.

Talanoa Hufanga, the highest-graded player in the Week 1 contest between the 49ers and Chicago Bears, was also among the top defenders against the Seahawks. The second-year safety is putting together an impressive 2022 campaign. His 90.7 defensive grade ranks second among all NFL safeties (Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick, 90.8) through two games this season.

Guard Aaron Banks was the 49ers' fourth-highest graded offensive player in Week 1. This past weekend, he took the top spot. He allowed just one pressure, and his 81.8 pass-blocking grade was the best in the game for either team.

Tackle Trent Williams always seems to find himself among the highest-graded 49ers players, and this past weekend was no different. His run-blocking grade of 72.4 was the best among the Niners' offensive linemen.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel had 97 all-purpose yards in the game. Fifty-three came on the ground while 44 came through the air. Samuel hauled in all five of his targets.

For the second consecutive week, center Jake Brendel and fullback Kyle Juszczyk find themselves among the bottom three graded offensive players. Once again, rookie defensive end Drake Jackson was among the 49ers' lowest graded defenders.

Kyle Shanahan believes 49ers players stepping up has helped Jimmy Garoppolo, talks crowd expectations in Mexico

Jimmy Garoppolo is turning in one of the better seasons of his career. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback stepped in for an injured Trey Lance in Week 2 and has once again asserted himself as the leader on offense. Garoppolo has played well in the last two games. He hasn't thrown an interception in those matchups—a 31-14 win over the Los Angeles Rams and a 22-16 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Tight end George Kittle has been one of Garoppolo's biggest supporters and had a theory as to why the quarterback has impressed over the last few weeks. "I

Every game is a home game for the 49ers, and it's both by design and 30 years in the making. Late last month, the 3-win San Francisco 49ers headed south to face the 3-win Los Angeles Rams in a pivotal NFC West matchup. The Niners' fourth victory of the 2022 NFL regular season was abnormal on numerous fronts, highlighted by a "Trifecta" performance by San Francisco's new running back Christian McCaffrey, who threw a first-half touchdown pass before scoring on the ground and through the air in the second half. The Rams had no answer for McCaffrey or quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who played his best game of the season, as he led the 49ers

Kyle Shanahan was feeling good on Monday night. The head coach's San Francisco 49ers won their third consecutive game, with the latest being a 38-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in an international matchup in Mexico City. The 49ers are getting hot, and have become a favorite to make some noise down the stretch and in the NFC playoffs, assuming things continue to trend upward for the team. "I felt real good about the guys," Shanahan told reporters after the game. "[The players] had a great week of practice. They've really been gelling these last three weeks. I feel like it's gotten a little better each week, and it was nice to put a full game together today." Players are also feeling the momentum build up. "We're definately ready to
