Good morning to everybody however particularly to…
CHRISTIAN McCAFFREY AND THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
When the 49ersChristian McCaffrey, the most important query was, “How a lot can a working again actually elevate San Francisco’s title hopes?” Now the query is, “What cannot CMC do?”
McCaffrey threw for a landing, caught a landing and ran for a landing because the 49ers continued their domination of the Rams in a 31-14 win. That places him in some uncommon firm:
Here’s what else occurred:
Jimmy Garoppolo performed one in all his finest and best video games, finishing 21 of 25 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns. His second — to George Kittle behind the tip zone — was completely good.The Rams solely produced 223 yards, and 49ers stars Fred Warner and Nick Bosa each bought sacks on Matthew Stafford.The 49ers have gained eight of the final 9 conferences between these groups. The solely loss, after all, was in final season’s NFC Championship recreation.
McCaffrey and the 49ers, writes NFL reporter Bryan DeArdo.
DeArdo: “Despite sharing a area with the reigning Super Bowl MVP, Christian McCaffrey was the difference-maker on this recreation. He ran for 94 yards on 18 carries and a rating, caught eight passes for 55 yards and a landing whereas additionally throwing his second profession landing go. McCaffrey helps 49ers normal supervisor John Lynch’s case as this 12 months’s NFL Executive of the Year. McCaffrey’s presence undoubtedly made issues simpler for Jimmy Garoppolo.”
Making issues worse for Los Angeles, Cooper Kupp. Kupp says it is not critical.
And not such a great morning for…
THE GREEN BAY PACKERS
It’s been some time since we have seen Aaron Rodgers and the Packers on any such dropping streak. It’s been even longer since we noticed their offense look the way in which it did… if we have ever seen it look this manner.
Green Bay misplaced, 27-17, in Buffalo on Sunday. It’s their fourth loss in a row, tying Rodgers’ second-longest as a starter. Losing to the Bills — the Super Bowl favourite — is nothing to be ashamed about. It’s how the Packers seemed that was eye-opening.
With a 3-5 report, Rodgers is off to the worst eight-game begin to a season in his profession.Despite taking part in catch-up almost the entire evening, Rodgers completed the evening with simply 19 completions.Only eight of these went to large receivers — his fewest in a loss during which he performed the entire recreation since 2015.Through three quarters, the Packers had 11 completions and 27 rushes. That’s the biggest distinction ever in a recreation began by Rodgers.
To see a staff with the two-time reigning MVP quarterback turn out to be so run-heavy is fairly wild, and it tells us that Green Bay merely would not belief its passing recreation. The Packers’ objective, seemingly, was to attempt to grind out sufficient first downs at a deliberate tempo to maintain Josh Allen and firm on the sideline. And it labored, to an extent: Green Bay ran for over 200 yards and had over seven extra minutes of possession.
It’s not a foul technique for those who’re really outmatched at most positions and easily attempting to maintain the sport inside attain and hope for some fortunate breaks. Last evening confirmed the Packers seen themselves as that — a staff clearly not near the Bills’ degree.

Trailing 21-16 with 8:51 left, TreVeyon Henderson scored a 41-yard landing run to offer the Buckeyes the lead. Then J.T. Tuimoloau sacked Sean Clifford and compelled and recovered a fumble. C.J. Stroud discovered Cade Stover for a 24-yard landing on the very subsequent play, and the Buckeyes by no means seemed again.Stroud (354 passing yards, one landing), Henderson (78 dashing yards, two touchdowns) and Marvin Harrison Jr. (10 receptions, 185 yards) all put up large numbers, however…Tuimoloau was the undisputed star: two sacks, two interceptions, one fumble pressured, one fumble recovered.Tuimoloau is the one participant this century to register that stat line in a recreation.
