The San Francisco 49ers bounced back from their tough loss on Christmas to the Baltimore Ravens. The team steamrolled over the Washington Commanders, beating them 27-10. All credit goes to quarterback Brock Purdy, who established himself as a good quarterback after he came back from his 4-interception game last week.

Purdy ended the game with 230 yards and 2 touchdowns. His second touchdown throw to Brandon Aiyuk was nothing short of incredible. Brock Purdy had the pocket collapse on him. He risked being sacked by the Commanders pass rushers, but he used his presence of mind and put his game management skills on full display.

Purdy ran across the width of the 49ers’ 20-yard line and managed to find an open Brandon Aiyuk in the endzone. Within no time, he threw the perfect pass to the wide receiver in the endzone, the play was executed to perfection. Brock Purdy did seem to improvise on the play, especially after the pocket collapsed.

It was an unforgettable night for Brock Purdy

Following the team’s incredible performance against the Commanders, the 49ers clinched the top seed in the NFC thereby securing the first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the NFC championships. Sunday night would be one that Purdy will never forget as Mr. Irrelevant established himself as a relevant figure in the history of the franchise.

His 4,280-yard season resulted in him surpassing Steve Young and Jeff Garcia in the list of most passing yards in a single season for the 49ers. Garcia set the record when he threw for 4,278 yards in 2000 while Young set the record in 1998 when he threw for 4,170 yards.

Brock Purdy could not have asked for a better way to return from a terrible outing last week. This could have been the last regular season game he played as the 49ers could decide to rest their starters next week against the Rams, especially since they have clinched their division. The only thing that remains for this 49ers team is to make a Super Bowl run and cap an amazing season for a quarterback who has had a storyline like no other in NFL history.
