49ers vs. Buccaneers 2nd quarter thread: The Bucs are copying the Jags with all of these screens

The Niners offense looks good.

San Francisco 49ers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

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.
