Quarterback C.J. Beathard
No kidding, C.J. Beathard had his best day as a pro on Sunday.
Beathard’s line was 19-of-25 passing for 288 yards and two touchdowns against one interception. This amounted to a passer rating of 123.4 — commendable, considering his previous high was 76.1 back in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.
But the numbers don’t just stop there. The rookie quarterback managed to rush for an 11-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter:
Head coach Kyle Shanahan later informed the press Beathard injured his thumb during the game but is expected to be back after the bye week.
