Protected to say, talks of Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers demise had been drastically exaggerated. Their play since coming back from a Week 9 bye has confirmed that.
After a three-game dropping streak halted Tremendous Bowl chatter in San Francisco, the Niners have responded by outscoring their opponents 61-17 over the previous two weeks as Purdy has reinserted himself into the MVP dialogue.
Purdy placed on a clinic in Sunday’s 27-14 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, finishing 21-of-25 passes for 333 yards with three touchdowns for an ideal 158.3 passer score. His efficiency marked the primary time a 49ers quarterback has posted an ideal passer score since Joe Montana in Week 10 of the 1989 season (accomplished 16-of-19 passes for 270 yards and three touchdowns). Purdy’s 25 makes an attempt on the afternoon are probably the most in franchise historical past by a quarterback with an ideal passer score.
Since Week 10, Purdy has posted an absurd 157.3 passer score, the very best by any quarterback in NFL historical past over a two-game span, per OptaSTATS.
