49ers stud: Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk
Deebo Samuel was excellent on Sunday. Brandon Aiyuk was even better.
Aiyuk essentially provided all of San Francisco’s offense during the game, hauling in the two touchdown passes from Jimmy Garoppolo, including the one below which features some awfully nifty route-running abilities from the third-year pass-catcher:
At the time, it appeared as if Aiyuk’s score was going to shift momentum in the game back towards the 49ers, as the touchdown tied things up.
Atlanta gained it back late in the first half, though, but that doesn’t erase an excellent eight-catch, 83-yard performance where Aiyuk hauled in those two scores.
Great job from him.
