49ers beat Chargers in Week 10 in SNF Niners comeback win

The the charger No time was wasted as the game advanced 75 yards on seven plays on the game’s opening drive. Justin Herbert completed passes of 14, 17 and 32 yards en route to a touchdown. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a great start for Dre Greenlaw or Talanoa Hufanga.

The 49ers‘ The offense got around midfield, as they tend to do. The question, as always, is whether they’ll punch it. An Elijah Mitchell Carey gave the offense a first down. And before you know it, they were inside the 5-yard line.

The offense couldn’t punch it in after the defense failed to run in the teeth and had to settle for a field goal. So, an impressive drive stalled, and the Niners could not answer with a touchdown. So, it was 7-3 after each possession.

The defense forced a punt, but Brandon Ayuk, after taking a big hit from Darwin James, fumbled the ball after a 20-yard reception. This left the defense in a quandary as it faced a short field from the 32-yard line. The Chargers gained five yards on three plays before settling for a field goal. That makes the score 10-3.

Both teams traded punts, including three straight three-and-outs. But a punt by Mitch Wishnowski was deflected, not blocked, meaning another short field for the defense. They gave up 39 yards after Jimmy Ward gave up an explosive play. To be fair to him, Justin Herbert threw a perfect pass:

Looking at the goal from 1st and 2, the defense didn’t budge. A Nick Bosa sack and an open field tackle by Jimmy helped hold the Chargers to another field goal. That makes the score 13-3.

The 49ers needed an answer, and they got one. A 9-play, 75-yard drive that saw George Kittle pick up 21 yards after Jimmy missed DeBow open on 2nd and 12. But Garoppolo made up for it, even if Ray-Ray McCloud didn’t have his best throw of the season on downs. Right sideline for 33 gains. Garoppolo capped the drive with a 1-yard quarterback sneak.

The defense gave up a field goal before halftime after Herbert used his legs on multiple plays. Dre Greenlaw was ejected after a helmet-to-helmet hit. The quarterback was a runner, so there was no real reason for the ejection. Also, you can’t prove that there was anything contaminated by Greenlaw.

I’m not usually the “flag throwing” type, but the refs had their fair share of misses tonight. Debo Samuel was wearing a mask. Nick Bosa held. Jack Brendel was called for a tic-tac holding call. I just wish the refs would remove themselves from the game and let the players play.

After this field goal, the defense didn’t let anything go. From the first drive, the 49ers’ defense forced 4 punts and held the Chargers to two field goals when they took over at the nine. They allowed a field goal at the end of the first half, but DiMeco Ryans and company came out lights out on the initial drive.

The offense couldn’t find the end zone because they had to. Ayuk dropped a pass on third and goal that would have been a touchdown. On their next drive, the 49ers marched 14 plays for 77 yards in a drive that took 6:59. Garoppolo stood tall against the blitz, and Ayuk made a tough grab before McCaffrey found the end zone. Unfortunately, Robbie Gould missed the extra point to make the score 19-16.

It felt like a monumental miss. The 49ers, apparently, can’t do things the easy way. Instead of forcing the Chargers to score a touchdown, they left the door open for Los Angeles to tie the game with a field goal.

But the defense wasn’t willing to allow them to move the ball, as Nick Bosa picked up his second sack of the game and Aziz Al-Shair made a tackle that forced the defense to 3 more balls out of bounds. and-out

The 49ers faced a 3rd and 9 with just over four minutes left in the game. It was a critical down, and Garoppolo threw a dart outside the numbers to Ayuk for an 11-yard pick for a first down.

After a punt, Mitch Wishnowski pinned the Chargers at the 1-yard line with just over two minutes to play. Los Angeles got to the 8-yard line, picked it up on 4th and 2, and Jordan Willis got pressure to force Herbert’s throw.

The 49ers play with a different level of ferocity and violence defensively. Add in team speed, and it’s easy to see why they pitched a shutout in this half. They are a fun unit to watch. Remember, there are multiple backups on the field, but you have no idea. The Chargers had a few big plays, but on a down-to-down basis, the defense was incredible.

The Chargers had a 32 percent success rate offensively. That’s 22 percentage points less than the 49ers. Fittingly, the game was stopped by a Talanoa Hufanga interception. It wasn’t pretty, but it never is with this team.

22-16, 49ers win.
