How to watch: 49ers vs. Buccaneers in Week 14 originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

It’s shaping up to be Mr. Irrelevant vs. The GOAT on Sunday afternoon in the Bay Area.

The San Francisco 49ers will turn to third-string quarterback Brock Purdy to lead their offense as they host Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Purdy, who was taken out of Iowa State with the last pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, stepped in last week against the Miami Dolphins when Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot in the first drive of the game. With Trey Lance also sidelined with a season-ending ankle injury, head coach Kyle Shanahan went to the 22-year-old who pulled off an upset 33-17 win. 

He’ll now square off against the seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady in his first start.

Luckily for Purdy, his offense has a distinct advantage running the ball. Don’t be surprised if the 49ers, led by newly acquired running back Christian McCaffrey, opt to keep the ball on the ground. 

The Buccaneers are the worst rushing team in the league, averaging 73 yards per game. That doesn’t bode well against a 49ers defense that leads the league in rushing defense, allowing just over 75 yards per game.

Both teams narrowly lead their respective divisions and are hanging on to the automatic spot in the NFL playoffs with five weeks remaining in the regular season.
