No. 2: 49ers had an 18-play, 93-yard touchdown drive
The 49ers offense has had its ups and downs all season long, but on Monday night, it executed in every way. Following Jimmie Ward’s first interception, the Niners took the ball into the end zone capping an 11-minute, 93-yard touchdown drive.
That drive resulted in the longest drive by any team so far this season.
It might have seemed a bit daunting for the offense to start on its own 7-yard line, and the likely hope was to gain some ground in order to flip field position, as no nearly full-field drive had been that successful this year to date.
But the team was nevertheless able to capitalize with a touchdown anyway.
The Niners converted on third down four times in that opening drive, which set the tone for the rest of the game. Tight end George Kittle was on the receiving end of three of the four conversions, also catching the game’s opening touchdown, while Jimmy Garappolo snuck in another conversion.
