49ers Stud No. 3: Quarterback Brock Purdy
Quarterback Brock Purdy‘s performance wasn’t the 400-yard game we had all hoped for, nor did he break the NFL record of eight straight games with two touchdowns or more.
What he did do was hold his own, respectively, and outduel a seven-year veteran while marching his team to victory.
Purdy’s contributions on the day were 19-of-29 for 214 yards. He threw for no touchdowns but also committed no turnovers.
The recent buzz on Purdy is that his outing against Dallas was subpar. In fact, it’s the opinion of many who feel that he finally played like the rookie that he is.
Rookie or not, the reality is that “Mr. Irrelevant” almost wasn’t drafted in May of last year, and currently, he’s one game away from starting in Super Bowl LVII. If his team is victorious against the Eagles, he’ll be the first rookie in NFL history to start in a Super Bowl.
And, you guessed it, he’ll be the first rookie in history to win a Super Bowl should he lead his team to victory.
