49ers fire on all cylinders in cathartic one-sided road win vs. Jaguars

The 49ers' losing streak is over. And it was made over in a big, big way.

52. 49ers-Jaguars final. 34. 42. Final. 3

The 49ers slammed the Jaguars on all phases in Week 10, as Brock Purdy and Co. shined on offense, and then Nick Bosa and Co. delivered on defense.

One can only imagine what the sentiments would be like if the San Francisco 49ers lost on the road in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars following a bye week, which would have been four consecutive defeats for head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad.

Fortunately, what-if scenarios don't exist.

The Niners absolutely demolished the red-hot Jags 34-3 on Sunday in a game that looked far more like the red and gold's domination of the Dallas Cowboys way back in Week 5 and nothing like the games played between Weeks 6 and 8.

For a defense that struggled to stop anything over the last three games, leading to coordinator Steve Wilks calling plays from the sideline and not the booth, to an offense that was averaging 17 points per contest during the losing streak, the victory has to feel great for San Francisco.

Pick a side of the ball, or even a 49ers player, and there's a chance there's nothing but good things to say.

Chase Young, Nick Bosa reunion proves to be lethal for Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence

Few players could be happier than edge Nick Bosa, who found his quarterback-sacking ways in the wake of the Niners' blockbuster trade for his former Ohio State teammate, Chase Young.

Young and Bosa were relentless during the game, part of the reason why Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence was sacked five times. And the edge-rushing duo combined for a strip sack that created a loose ball Bosa was able to recover:

It was one of the more impressive plays you'll see this season, yes.

Bosa also created the pressure that forced Lawrence to toss an ill-advised tip-ball interception to safety Talanoa Hufanga, who recorded one of San Francisco's four defensive takeaways.

In total, the 49ers not only held the Jags to three points, but they also limited them to just 221 yards.

Wilks even earned respect from former Niners cornerback Richard Sherman:

The Niners defense is back.

Brock Purdy, 49ers offense fire back after 3-game cold streak

Quarterback Brock Purdy, who tossed five interceptions during the three-game losing streak, was having none of his turnover-prone ways against Jacksonville, and that was evident on his first touchdown pass of the game on what was a gutsy-but-effective toss to wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk:

Aiyuk had the score. So did tight end George Kittle on a 66-yard catch-and-run score, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel had a 29-yard rushing touchdown with some of the best blocking you would see in the league today.

Meanwhile, Christian McCaffrey couldn't quite set the record of consecutive games scored with a touchdown despite some desperation attempts late in the fourth quarter when the game was no longer in doubt.

He's still tied for the all-time record with 18, though.

Purdy, who endured the worst three-game stretch of his career, previously, went 19-of-26 for 296 yards, three touchdowns against no picks for a 148.9 passer rating against a very good Jaguars defense before giving way to backup QB Sam Darnold in garbage time.

McCaffrey might not care as much, though, especially with San Francisco getting back into the win column and improving to 6-3.
