NFL: Tennessee Titans at San Francisco 49ers Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

With the victory against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, the 49ers are currently one of the 2 hottest teams in the NFL. Jimmy Garoppolo led the 49ers to a win in his 1st home game with a drive that led to a Robbie Gould game-winning field goal. That is 3 straight wins for the 49ers since Jimmy took over the starting quarterback duties. They look to continue that streak against the other hottest team in the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jimmy Garoppolo keeps getting more and more impressive with every game. He finished going 31 of 43 with 381 yards and 1 touchdown. With the game on the line, he was calm as usual and marched down the field. He hit a pass to Kendrick Bourne in stride and Bourne ran until he was dropped for a 54 yard gain. Next play, Jimmy found George Kittle for 19 yards and a few plays later, Robbie Gould hit a 48 yard field goal to seal the win.

Marquise Goodwin continues to thrive with Jimmy as quarterback. He racked up 10 catches for 114 yards against Tennessee. He has racked up 319 yards on 24 catches in the last 3 games. He is just 103 yards short of the 1,000 yard receiving mark and with the chemistry he has quickly built with Jimmy, he should pass that before the end of the season. With the season he is having, he is looking like a good offseason pickup and should be a good piece for the 49ers to build their offense with.
