Jimmy! Jimmy! 49ers QB gets game ball after win vs. Cards

Middlekauff While Kyle Shanahan is leading the charge on offense Jimmy Garoppolo is really starting to play well

He stayed down on the field in clear pain before walking to the team's medical tent for further evaluation and went to the bench instead of the locker room. Their clash later this year is promising to entertain, but the Saints have to run a gauntlet of four games in three weeks against NFC South rivals, starting (in New Orleans) next Sunday with the Atlanta Falcons, and ending in the league's other Mercedes-Benz-sponsored venue when the Falcons host the Saints on Thanksgiving night. His MRI revealed a torn pectoral, which will land him on season-ending injured reserve. And when the Niners needed a drive-extending play to ice the game, Garoppolo completed a pivotal third-and-9 late in the fourth quarter.

While a win by the Cardinals on Thursday certainly would have been a major help for the Rams in the division race, it looks like the team will just have to hope for some help during these next two months. Kittle was on the sideline because he felt as if his lack of mobility at that time in the game had become a hindrance to the team.

"I know once something happens, you try to push through it as much as you can, but there comes a point if I feel like I'm a liability to the team, and I'm not the best man for the job, I definitely have to [leave the game]", Kittle told reporters. "That one didn't work out for us and that's on me".


Kittle's touchdown reception occurred after the injury. Even fellow tight end Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs was impressed.

The 49ers ended up winning the game 28-25 and improving to 8-0 for the first time since 1990 and just the second time in franchise history.

"It is what it is", Kittle responded.
