Reviving the CMC Touchdown-Scoring Streak
Running back Christian McCaffrey saw his 17-game touchdown scoring streak come to an end in Week 10. However, the seventh-year pro restarted the streak with a four-yard receiving touchdown in the first quarter of the latest game. McCaffrey had 14 carries for 59 yards on the ground along with five catches for 25 yards and a touchdown through the air.
Causing Takeaway Trouble for Tampa Bay
The 49ers’ second sack came on the Buccaneers’ final offensive series of the first half, and rookie Ji’Ayir Brown intercepted Mayfield in the end zone during Tampa Bay’s second to last offensive series of the game.
The rookie kicker recorded his third-straight perfect kicking day in Week 11, going two-for-two on field goal attempts and hitting all of his PATs against the Buccaneers.
A New Career-Best for Brock Purdy
Purdy set a new career-long touchdown pass record with a 76-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. He ended the day with 333 yards, three touchdowns, and a perfect passer rating of 158.3.
“What an honor, but at the same time, there’s still some plays I wish I had back,” Purdy said. “I’m not completely content with just that, but I thought it was a great game with the guys around me, the coaching, the play calling, all of it. That’s a testament to the team.”
Safety Talanoa Hufanga suffered a knee injury and rookie Ji’Ayir Brown stepped in to make a big impact for the team.
“I thought (Ji’Ayir) did a good job,” Shanahan said. “To lose a player like Huf in the game, and for him to come in and step it up big, make two huge plays, was impressive.”
