Quick Takeaways


Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earned his highest grade of the season, leading all offensive players in the game. His 87.5 overall grade was his highest mark since a 90.2 grade during Week 2 of the 2020 season. Garoppolo finished the game completing 16 of his 27 pass attempts for 239 yards, a touchdown, and a passer rating of 100.7, his highest rating since Week 15 last season (123.7).

Also earning a season-high grade was wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who finished the game with six catches for 115 yards, a touchdown, and zero drops. He added two rushing attempts for two yards. Samuel's trip to the end zone came courtesy of a 57-yard reception and run past Rams defenders.

Colton McKivitz, who played just 32 snaps, exited the game with a knee injury. However, he ended up being the 49ers' highest-graded offensive lineman. McKivitz was playing in the place of injured left tackle Trent Williams. Not far behind McKivitz was right tackle Mike McGlinchey. Neither offensive lineman allowed a pressure in 49 combined pass-blocking snaps.

Fullback Kyle Juszczyk, a mainstay among the lowest-graded 49ers players, earned his highest grade of the season. He even caught a pass for 35 yards. In addition, Juszczyk earned the team's fourth-highest pass-blocking grade.

Jeff Wilson Jr. was the 49ers' highest graded halfback, earning a 67.0 overall grade, his second-highest season mark (72.5 in Week 2). He finished the game with 74 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries.

Tackle Jaylon Moore, who filled in for McKivitz after his injury, earned the team's second-highest pass-blocking grade (79.5) in his seven pass-blocking snaps. McKivitz earned the highest (87.2). Moore did not surrender a pressure.

Defensive end Nick Bosa was the game's highest-graded player. He finished the game with three tackles, two sacks, and five quarterback hits. Pro Football Focus credited the pass rusher with 14 total pressures and nine quarterback hurries. The 14 pressures are a career-high. Bosa now has a league-leading six sacks and a league-leading 30 pressures this season.

The pass rusher opposite Bosa, Samson Ebukam, earned the second-highest grade among the game's defensive players. He, too, finished the game with two sacks, adding four pressures and two quarterback hurries.

The 49ers' big offseason addition, cornerback Charvarius Ward, was the game's highest-graded defensive back. He surrendered just one reception for eight yards on his way to his second-highest grade of the season (81.7 in Week 3).

The next-highest graded defensive back was safety Talanoa Hufanga. He surrendered just two receptions for 19 yards, adding a 52-yard pick-six off Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford.

There was no shortage of topics to talk about from a 49ers perspective after Sunday's 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins, and we're going to dive right into them in this edition of 49ers Notebook. While much of Sunday's postgame discussion dealt with the season-ending foot injury to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the performance of Garoppolo's replacement, Brock Purdy, there were a number of other interesting and entertaining moments we're going to get into here, including some pointed (but friendly) words defensive end Nick Bosa had for head coach Kyle Shanahan and a bit of smack talk from wide receiver Deebo Samuel to former 49ers running back Raheem Mostert. Let's get it started... Thank S***-talking Kyle Shanahan for Nick Bosa's

49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings has had a quieter year statistically than some may have expected, considering where he was at the end of the 2021 season. But just as he did in 2021, Jennings stepped up in the clutch Sunday, giving the 49ers multiple huge plays while helping them secure a 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. After catching 16 passes for 212 yards and three touchdowns over the final five games of the 2021 regular season, Jennings entered this weekend with 30 catches for 220 yards and zero touchdowns for 2022. But on Sunday he caught six passes for 49 yards while hauling in the game's only touchdown. Jennings also made a key third down catch on the game's final drive that helped run out the clock and seal the win. Jennings' clutch performance on
