The Niners offense looks good.
The 49ers didn’t accomplish much on their first offensive drive, but the defense forced a three-and-out.
On the Niners second drive, they picked up a first down and made it to mid-field. On third down, Purdy found Christian McCaffrey underneath to keep the drive alive after it seemed as if the offense would stall.
A holding penalty on the ensuing play negated a first down run from McCaffrey to put San Francisco behind the chains. But Aiyuk would get his revenge, as he drew a defensive holding call on Jamel Dean to give the offense a first down.
Dean was banged up on the play, and the 49ers went right after his backup, which resulted in a first down reception for Aiyuk.
After a McCaffrey run, Kyle Shanahan drew up a scheme to isolate CMC 1-on-1 with Devin White, and that’s advantage McCaffrey every day of the week. McCaffrey’s touchdown began a new streak to give the 49ers a 7-0 lead.
