The (1-4) San Francisco 49ers took on the (2-2-1) Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football losing 33-30.
This game was everything a 49ers fan could ask for with high scoring for its back ups. C.J. Beathard finished the night with 16 for 23, 245 yards, 2 TDS, and 1 interception.
The 49ers received the ball first, driving down the field for a Matt Breida touchdown. CJ Beathard was flawless on that drive. On their 1st defensive drive it took Green Bay’s QB, Aaron Rodgers two plays to get his team in scoring position and on the 5th play the Packers got in the end zone.
The 49ers led the Packers at the half 21-20. Marquise Goodwin led the 49ers in receiving with four receptions for 126 yards and TDS. The 49ers ground game was led by the two-headed monster of Mostert and Breida, who scored a touchdown on the opening drive. The game came down to the final minute and 13 Seconds.
With the score 30-30, the Niners were on the 46th in position to win the game. It’s 3 and 3 and Coach Shanahan calls a deep post route for the win. The Packers were in cover 0 (all out blitz). Beathard sees Goodwin in man to man and throws the ball and it’s intercepted by Green Bay’s Kevin King.
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers got the ball back and on the 10 yard line with no timeout. It was 3 and long. Rodgers dropped back for the pass and is sacked by Deforest Buckner. The 49ers are about to win the game on the road against Green Bay, right? Wrong! Richard Sherman was called for illegal contact, which extended the Packers drive and Mason Crosby wins it in regulation 33-30.
In my opinion, CJ Beatheard played his best football known to man. He stepped it up on one of the biggest stages and under all the lights. I’m truly excited to see this diamond 💎 in the rough and watch him polish up into a beautiful gem in years to come.
