52. Final. 30. 42. 10

The 49ers were easily the best team in Week 11 over the Jaguars, winning decisively by 30-10, and the position grades reflect the one-sided victory.

The San Francisco 49ers are no longer a losing team in 2021, getting back to the .500 mark after pulling off a convincing and relatively easy 30-10 road win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11 at TIAA Bank Field.

Now at 5-5, the Niners can feel pretty good about not suffering a trap game after already beating the Los Angeles Rams the previous week, and Week 11 was a clear-cut showing of just how different San Francisco and Jacksonville are.

Simply put, the 49ers had far more firepower and discipline on both sides of the ball, whereas the Niners’ victory was just as much about what the Jaguars did wrong throughout the game.

Case in point, the Jags were flagged with eight penalties for 56 yards, and two of those extended San Francisco drives that otherwise would have stalled.

The 49ers, meanwhile, maintained a similar formula that worked a week ago, maintain possession by grinding down the clock and wearing down an already questionable Jacksonville defense that lost even more players as the game wore on. Just like Week 10, the Niners nearly doubled the time-of-possession battle, outpossessing the Jaguars 38:22 to 21:38 while converting 25 first downs to the Jaguars’ 14.

Not surprisingly, San Francisco’s positional grades from Week 11 are pretty solid on all three phases, and all three phases managed to produce key moments that ultimately led to the 49ers’ second win streak of the 2021 season.
