49ERS RIDE DEEBO AND PURDY WILL WIN OVER GIANTS
That’s 30 points for Brock Purdy and the rest of the 49ers’ offense, although things did not always look pretty on Thursday night against the New York Giants. The 49ers finally pulled away with Purdy’s 27-yard fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Deebo Samuel to cruise to a 30-12 victory in their home opener at Levi’s Stadium.
The 49ers have scored 30 points in each of their first three games of the season for the third time in franchise history and the first time since 1992. Until Purdy’s back-shoulder dagger to Samuel, the 49ers were settling for too much of Jake Moody. The rookie kicker was 3-for-3 on field goals of 28, 21 and 36 yards to make him a perfect 9-for-9 on the season.
