The San Francisco 49ers are the number one seed in the NFC following their fifth consecutive victory over the Seattle Seahawks. It wasn’t always pretty, but the better team executed and finished with a win. The offense did what they did and wore their opponent down until the levy broke. Brock Purdy and the offense didn’t eclipse 30 points on Sunday, and they didn’t need to.

Let’s look at the grades and snap counts for the 49ers offense.

Quarterbacks - Brock Purdy 54 (77.4)

Purdy strengthened his case for MVP with a career-high 368 passing yards on 19/27 passing with two touchdowns and an interception. For those of you who are math enthusiasts, Purdy finished with 13.6 yards per attempt. George Kittle, Brandon Aiyuk, and Deebo Samuel caught 40-plus yard passes on Sunday.

The interception appeared to be a miscommunication between Purdy and Aiyuk, and some throws early on were missed. But once Purdy and the offense found their rhythm, it was business as usual.

Running Backs - Christian McCaffrey 48 (74.8), Kyle Juszczyk 23 (59.5), Jordan Mason 7 (71.1)

Christian McCaffrey started Sunday off with a bang with a 72-yard run to the one-yard line, and Jordan Mason punched the next play in to give the 49ers a quick 7-0 lead. Funny enough, McCaffrey finished with 71 yards after contact while forcing five missed tackles and had four runs of ten-plus yards.

Elijah Mitchell was down on Sunday, which gave way to Jordan Mason, but it was McCaffrey’s show.

Wide Receivers - Brandon Aiyuk 49 (90.0), Deebo Samuel 42 (83.5), Jauan Jennings 18 (51.4), Chris Conley 8 (64.5), Ronnie Bell 1 (60.0)

Samuel continues to dazzle during his three-game stretch that includes six total touchdowns. Seven receptions, 149 yards, and a receiving touchdown with a rush attempt for another touchdown is just the latest big performance for Samuel during his torrid stretch.

Aiyuk had another huge day with 126 yards on six receptions. A fumble late in the game on Sunday was Aiyuk’s only blemish. Aiyuk finished with 21 yards per reception.

Tight Ends - George Kittle 50 (83.5), Charlie Woerner 23 (74.2), Brayden Willis 4 (55.7)

Kittle finished with 76 yards on three receptions and a 72.9 pass-blocking grade. Kittle hauled in a 44-yard reception for his longest play of the day.

Charlie Woerner caught his second pass of the season and finished with a 72.7 pass-blocking grade.

Offensive Line - Aaron Banks 54 (39.2), Colton McKivitz 54 (81.3), Jake Brendel 54 (50.7), Jon Feliciano 54 (91.4), Trent Williams 54 (66.0)

Jon Feliciano finished with the highest offensive grade on Sunday. Colton McKivitz finished with an 81.3 grade, which is good for fifth-best on the team. Trent Williams finished with a clean sheet. Aaron Banks had a rough go on Sunday. Banks allowed a QB hit, hurry, and two pressures allowed and a 26.9 pass-blocking grade. McKivitz was dinged for three hurries and four pressures but was graded as the second-highest run blocker behind Feliciano.
