I don’t know if I’ve ever been this excited after a win by a 3-10 team, but who cares!! The 49ers improved to 4-10 with the win and have now won four of their last five and all three of Jimmy Garoppolo’s starts. Garoppolo got them into field goal range, and it was Gould’s career high sixth field goal on the day that won it. It’s safe to say Gould will be the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
I was setting myself up for a heart-breaking loss after Ryan Succup drilled a 50-yard field goal with 1:07 left. Instead, Garoppolo quickly moved the 49ers 48 yards and into field goal range. It was yet another huge game from the 49ers quarterback, who is doing just about all we could imagine. He set another career high in passing yards, throwing for 381 yards to go with his one touchdown to Garrett Celek.
We’ll have plenty more on this wild one, but for now ... VICTORY!!!!
