Quick Takeaways

The 49ers showcased an impressive performance against the Jaguars, and several players stood out with notable Pro Football Focus grades.

We'll start with Brock Purdy, who emerged as the game's highest-graded offensive player, achieving a career-high overall Pro Football Focus grade of 91.7. The 49ers quarterback completed 19 of his 26 passing attempts for 296 yards and three touchdowns with a career-high passer rating of 148.9. This marked Purdy's third career game with three or more touchdowns and a passer rating of at least 140.0, making him the second player in NFL history to have three such games in their first two seasons (Kurt Warner, 1999).

Defensive end Nick Bosa led the game with an overall grade of 93.6. He contributed 1.5 sacks, bringing his season total to 4.5 and his career total to 47.5. Pro Football Focus credited the pass rusher with four pressures and a quarterback hurry.

Newly acquired defensive end Chase Young also recorded four pressures, earning an overall grade of 60.7 while contributing 0.5 sacks.

Defensive tackle Javon Hargrave's overall grade of 89.6 was his second-highest of the season. He also recorded four pressures while recording 1.5 sacks, giving him 4.5 on the season and 42.0 in his career.

George Kittle caught three passes for 116 yards and a touchdown, his fourth trip into the end zone this season and 35th of his career. The tight end has recorded an overall grade of at least 83.9 in each of his last three games and 76.2 or higher in six of his nine games this season.

Although Christian McCaffrey fell short of breaking the NFL record for consecutive games with a touchdown, the running back's overall grade of 84.4 was his second-highest of the season (91.0 in Week 4).

Jon Feliciano, filling in for injured guard Aaron Banks, earned his highest grade since Week 13 last season (82.7). He allowed just one pressure in 33 pass-blocking snaps. Feliciano's 81.7 overall grade against the Jaguars was better than any single-game grade Banks turned in this season.

Fred Warner's 90.0 overall grade was a season-high for the linebacker and his highest grade since Week 10 last season (90.2). He finished the game with seven tackles, a quarterback hit, an interception, and a pass defensed. Warner's interception was his third of the season, tying safety Talanoa Hufanga for the team's lead.

Speaking of Hufanga, the safety finished the game with a team-leading eight tackles while also hauling in an interception. His 76.4 overall grade was his highest since Week 1 (77.9).

Cornerback Ambry Thomas boasted a career-high overall grade of 81.3 and a career-high coverage grade of 82.3 while lining up at right cornerback. He allowed only two receptions for 14 yards.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel and tackle Trent Williams returned to the lineup for the first time in nearly a month. Williams earned an overall grade of 71.1. His pass-blocking grade of 57.3 was his second-lowest of the season (30.3 in Week 6), allowing four pressures, two quarterback hits, and two hurries. Samuel finished the game with seven touches for 59 total yards and a rushing touchdown, earning an overall grade of 70.6.

The bad blood between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers seems to be getting worse. It certainly isn't getting any less bizarre. The latest chapter of back-and-forth between these two teams occurred Tuesday evening in an exchange between 49ers offensive lineman Jon Feliciano and Eagles defensive tackle Jalen Carter. Feliciano made headlines earlier in the week by publicly pointing out a mistake made by guard Spencer Burford during a pivotal overtime play against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, to which Carter responded by writing "Same dude who spoke on my dead teammate and the reason I was emotional during our game." Carter was referring to former University of Georgia player Devin Willock, who died along with team recruiting analyst Chandler LeCroy

By Kirk Larrabee

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's
