49ers news: Deebo Samuel hilariously narrates George Kittle TD
By Peter Panacy
The 49ers may have been without Deebo Samuel during their Week 15 win over the Seahawks, but that didn’t stop him from having fun with the action.
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle might want to thank his teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, for a couple of different things from the Week 15 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football.
For starters, Samuel didn’t play because of the knee and ankle injuries suffered during the Niners’ Week 14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And while Samuel is expected to be back soon, his absence helped ensure Kittle would be a primary target for quarterback Brock Purdy.
All to the tune of 93 receiving yards on four catches with two touchdowns.
Kittle might also want to thank Samuel for some awesome narration of the second touchdown pass hauled in that night, a 54-yard catch-and-run play that turned out to be San Francisco’s final score of the evening.
Seriously, Samuel’s play-by-play call is great.

Recording live from his home, Samuel posted up the story on his Instagram account (h/t NBC Sports Bay Area) of him calling Kittle’s touchdown.
Yes, plenty of “excuse me” calls in there with Kittle dodging would-be Seahawks tacklers:
Side note, Samuel’s son is awfully cute, and you’ve got to love the Christmas stockings with the baby “D” right next to his dad’s.
Still, Samuel having fun with his teammate’s success is always a good thing, and the better part is the 49ers beat the Hawks 21-13 en route to their 10th victory of the season and clinching the NFC West in the process.

While Samuel probably would have preferred being on the field with his teammates, it’s good to know he’s partaking in the game as a commentator.
Perhaps he’ll have a career in broadcasting when his NFL playing days are done.
