On a day that the San Francisco 49ers reached several milestones, quarterback Brock Purdy likely reached the most prestigious.
With his pass to tight end George Kittle in the fourth quarter against the Washington Commanders, Purdy passed former 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia to become the single-season passing leader for the 49ers.
Purdy finished the game, a 27-10 win over Washington, with 230 passing yards which puts him at 4,280 for the season. The previous No. 1 spot was 4,278 passing yards.
Even if Purdy doesn't make too much of this record, his legacy is marked in 49ers history, and he's only in his first full year as a starter.
As the Philadelphia Eagles and the Detroit Lions both lost, the 49ers clinched the number-one seed in the NFC. Therefore it seems very likely that Purdy will sit out in Week 18 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Therefore his single-season number should sit right where it's at to close out the season. However, the young quarterback is only in his second season and first full year as a starter.
So there is a big chance that he has not even hit his ceiling yet. Sky is the limit for Purdy.
