With the chance to extend their lead to double-figures late in the game, the San Francisco 49ers put the ball in Deebo Samuel’s hands. After driving the ball nearly 75 yards down the field, Kyle Shanahan and Brock Purdy turned to Sameul for a vintage performance.
From the 11-yard line, Purdy swung the ball around to Sameul in the flag. While the play initially looked like it was headed towards a short gain, Samuel went to work. The 49ers’ pass catcher navigated through traffic and broke tackle after tackle on his way to a score.

Samuel notched six catches for 63 yards to go along with four rushes for 36 yards on the ground in an impressive performance for the 49ers against the Rams.
