On Thursday night which opens the third day, San Francisco extends its unbeaten streak and is already advancing its bid for the Super Bowl
They scare. The San Francisco 49ers scare anyone who aspires to win the 2024 Super Bowl. They overwhelm the New York Giants 30-12 on Thursday Night which opens the third NFL day, they go up to 3-0 on the season and even win their 13th victory in a row in the regular season.
The Californians coached by Coach Shanahan scare their opponents because they are complete: they don’t depend on a single star. This time, in Santa Clara, Deebo Samuel, the emotional leader of the offense, overflows for 129 yards and a touchdown, Christian McCaffrey, the running back, scores a try for the 12th game in a row, George Kittle, the tight end, exhibits 7 taken. And Mr Irrelevant, the last call of the 2022 Draft, Brock Purdy, the quarterback, surpasses 300 yards thrown. Time of possession: almost 39 minutes, out of 60 for the game. The defense then holds the opponents to just 150 yards overall, a paltry 29 on runs. Talanoa Hufanga throws an interception to Daniel Jones and Nick Bose steps up as a quarterback catcher. In September the NFL predictions have little perspective, it’s too early, but these 49ers if they stay healthy are the team to beat. Point. Among other things, perhaps the most insidious opponents in the Conference, at least together with Philadelphia, are losing their pieces: in training the Dallas Cowboys have just seen super cornerback Trevon Diggs injure the cruciate ligament in his left knee. His season is already over.
The 49ers appear without the injured (shoulder) Brandon Aiyuk, the second best receiver. But the most serious absence is of the Giants, without Saquon Barkley (ankle), the running back, the best player of the Big Apple team. Without him the visiting attack shows structural limits: Daniel Jones, the quarterback, has no playmaker available. Tight end Waller disappoints, neutralized with just 20 yards of catches. The first try arrives at 3-3: the 49ers extend the Purdy-Bell axis, for the freshman from Michigan University it is the first NFL reception in the end zone of his career. 49ers surgical on third down: 8/10, they close it down systematically. Then McCaffrey scores the touchdown on a run to make it 17-3. The score is then 17-6, at halftime. Where Trent Williams, the left tackle of the Californians, does not arrive ahead of the others and remains there because he was pardoned by the referees despite the punch he landed on A’Shawn Robinson in the face. Just 88 yards produced in a half by the Giants’ attack which only glimpsed the oval. Matt Breida, the former, scores the touchdown on a run to make it 17-12, the only one for the guests, at the beginning of the third quarter. We suddenly have an open game, against predictions, despite the missed 2-point conversion. But the Giants illusion (now 1-2 record) lasts very little. The 49ers lead 23-12 with two field goals. Solid, inexorable. And Samuel then puts the icing on the cake with the 27-yard reception for the final 30-12. Game over.
