Jimmy Garoppolo is the Future

Jimmy Garoppolo is the Future

And, while there are still obvious holes on the interior of the line, Jacksonville's lack of success in getting to Garoppolo is testament to what having a quarterback who boasts a quick release and performs well under pressure can do for those around him.

The San Francisco 49ers have more than just the league's top-ranked scoring defense to deal with when the Jacksonville Jaguars visit on Sunday. Have thoughts on how the 49ers and Jaguars are performing? "Oooohhh, okay", said Foster. He plucked a pass tipped off the hand of rookie receiver Keelan Cole and then waltzed into the end zone for the first defensive score for the 49ers since cornerback Jimmy Ward picked off a pass for a score against the Bears in 2015. Garoppolo improved to 6-0 in his career as a starter. It all played out pretty perfectly today.

SANTA CLARA Make that 4-0 for Jimmy Garoppolo & Co. But not without help from the defense.

Either a Blake Bortles clone is sitting in the front row or. hey who's in that No. 5 jersey right now?

"It was an under route", Johnson said.

"It's not just because they run the ball over and over again and they have opportunities to run", Saleh said. It was over thrown and I was very fortunate to be in the right place at the right time. "I don't know. We're dealing with the Rams next weekend".

However, the Jaguars blocked the follow up extra point.

But Garoppolo has blown past any reasonable expectations, and this four-week run should give him breathing room if he has a poor showing on the road against the Los Angeles Rams in the season finale.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette He produced his ninth rushing touchdown of his rookie season, a 1-yard run that pulled the Jaguars within 16-9 in the second quarter.

Not since Jim Harbaugh has the future looked this bright in San Francisco. Bortles was incredible in the first three games of December with seven touchdowns and no interceptions but turned back into a pumpkin Sunday with three picks. That tied the game at 16. By the third, Jacksonville extended their lead with a 45-yard field goal from Josh Lambo.

Bortles eventually made another mistake, tossing an interception to 49ers cornerback K'Waun Williams on the next series. He intercepted Bortles and went 27 yards.

Bortles' best stretch occurred in the final drive 0f the first half when he marched the Jaguars 80 yards on eight plays and capped it with 5-yard touchdown pass to Jaelen Strong. Penalties late in the third carried over to the fourth with the Jaguars fighting themselves.

With the momentum back on their side, San Francisco would not let off of the gas.

"Controlling our emotions when we're on the field, that affects the team and that's what we have to do a better job of", coach Doug Marrone said. Now that the 49ers have proven they can beat the league's best at home, it will be their chance to prove they can do it on the road, too. "In the end, we had three turnovers that resulted in 21 points, which is hard".

The Jacksonville Jaguars are not used to losing...this season. After that Jacksonville made their comeback. He threw for 242 yards and two touchdowns.
