Can 49ers WR Jauan Jennings build off big game vs. Saints?

By Rohan Chakravarthi

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings was the team's leading pass-catcher on Sunday, hauling in six passes for 49 yards and a touchdown, his second-most productive total of the season. Jennings, who has been relatively quiet this season after a strong finish to his 2021 campaign, put together an emphatic performance where he was once again a reliable option at the sticks, converting five first downs on his six receptions. On the year, 17 of Jennings's 24 receptions have gone for first downs, despite the 2020 seventh-round pick averaging just 5.7 yards per reception. However, the 49ers wideout has struggled with drops this season, averaging a drop rate of over 20% through the first seven weeks of the season. Since then, despite

The Kansas City Chiefs offense currently ranks No. 1 in the NFL in total yards and points scored. The unit put up 42 points on the San Francisco 49ers defense when the two teams met at Levi's Stadium on October 23. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo gifted the Chiefs two more points on a safety for a total of 44. "In the Chiefs game, what we didn't do, we didn't get off the field on third down because we didn't make plays," defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans said after Thursday's practice. "We busted coverages. We weren't where we were supposed to be. We didn't do our job, and when you don't do your job consistently, you'll get embarrassed, as we did in that Chiefs game. "And it's nothing that they did that surprised us. It's guys just being on it each and every

We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.
