With two touchdown passes and the victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy became the first quarterback in NFL history to win each of his first six career regular-season starts and throw at least two touchdown passes in each start. He also became the first quarterback in NFL history with a passer rating of 95 or higher in each of his first six career regular-season starts.

Both of those streaks came to an end for the 49ers quarterback. Purdy was not credited with a touchdown pass. He initially had one to Deebo Samuel, but it was later changed to a rushing touchdown by the wide receiver. Purdy finished the game with a passer rating of 93.1.

Still, the streak that matters, regular-season wins, continues. On Sunday, the 49ers beat the Los Angeles Rams 30-23 at SoFi Stadium. San Francisco won its 12th consecutive regular-season game, the second-longest streak in franchise history (15 in a row from 1989 to 1990).

Brock Purdy's seven career regular-season starts:

49ers vs. Giants: Brock Purdy, Christian McCaffrey can extend streaks

By Site Staff
Sep 20

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has led the team to a 2-0 start after winning his first five career starts last season. He is the first quarterback ever with a passer rating of 90 or higher in each of his first seven career starts. With a win against the New York Giants on "Thursday Night Football" (5:15 PM PT, Prime Video), Purdy will improve to 8-0 in his career as a starter, marking the third-most consecutive wins by a quarterback to begin his career since 1970. Only Ben Roethlisberger (15 consecutive wins to begin his career) and Mike Tomczak (10) had longer streaks. The quarterbacks with the most consecutive wins to begin their careers since

49ers QB Brock Purdy takes responsibility for overthrows: "I've got to be better"

By Kirk Larrabee
Sep 17

Even though Brock Purdy's numbers were far from awful during the 49ers' win over the Rams on Sunday, it's easy to think of what could have been had he connected on a few missed opportunities to put more points on the board. Purdy finished 17-of-25 for 206 yards, zero touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a rushing touchdown in the 30-23 win at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. The touchdown number in that stat line could have been much better had Purdy connected on three passes in particular to open receivers that wound up being overthrown. The first came in the second quarter a deep ball intended for wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, then two more came later in the game on a pass over the middle towards the end zone intended for wide receiver Deebo Samuel and a

Brock Purdy on pace to be 49ers' first 4,000-yard passer since Jeff Garcia

By JD Salazar

Since the turn of the century, there have been 179 single-season quarterback performances of at least 4,000 yards. The 49ers, as fans well know, have but one; Jeff Garcia's impressive but futile 4,278 yard effort in a 2000 season that saw SF go just 6-10. Since then, that franchise high-water mark has gone untouched. There have been a few other contenders to rally around in that span - Alex Smith, Colin Kaepernick, Jimmy Garoppolo - but each have fallen short of that historic mark. Brock Purdy, though, will at least threaten to meet that lofty expectation. With his latest 310-yard, two-touchdown performance, Purdy finds himself on pace for a 4,171-yard season in 2023. His key trait has been his efficiency; so far this year, he's completed 67.0% of his passes, and has yet to
