San Francisco 49ers
After falling 19-10 in their opener against the Chicago BearsThe San Francisco 49ers (1-1) rebounded in Week 2 with a dominant 27-7 victory over the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday afternoon. However, the team lost starting QB Trey Lance In the process. Lance, who went 3rd overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, was carried off the field in the 1st quarter with a broken ankle that will require end-of-season surgery. Jimmy Garoppolo is now back to where it was after the 49ers spent most of this offseason trying to trade him. San Francisco gave Garoppolo permission to seek a trade in July but ended up restructure your contract with the intention of keeping him as a backup behind Lance.
Garoppolo was 13 of 21 for 154 passing yards with 1 passing touchdown and also rushed for a touchdown in Sunday’s win. While he was proud of his performance, Garappolo said the win was bittersweet.
“It was good to be back there. I feel bad for Trey. I’ve been on that side. This league is tough. Garoppolo told reporters on 49ersWebzone.com. “Everyone has his share of injuries, but it sucks for him. I feel bad for him but he’s our brother and we’ll get him. . . . I’m comfortable here. The players, the scheme, all that, the locker room, I’m comfortable. I know him. I’m not saying I knew it was going to happen, but I was ready for it in case it happened and I just wanted to take the opportunity.
Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos (1-1) picked up their first win of the season last Sunday with a nasty 16-9 win over the Houston Texans. The Broncos offense struggled for most of the game and the first-year head coach Nathaniel Hacket again received criticism and even the boos of the crowd for some questionable parts. Hackett, the former offensive coordinator of the Green Bay Packers (2019-2021) under Matt LaFleurtold reporters after the game that he would work to make his calls more effective.
“I think I just need to be sure to clean up exactly what I’m hearing, where I’m coming from, and make sure I’m on the same page for Russ. I think that will make us more efficient.”
Wilson completed 14 of 31 passes for 219 yards, with one touchdown, one interception and three sacks in Sunday’s win. The 9-time Pro-Bowler and 2014 Super Bowl champion signed a 5-year, $245 million extension with the Broncos earlier this month making him the second highest paid player in the league by average annual salary ($49 million). The franchise is hoping the veteran QB can help lead the Broncos to their first playoff appearance since 2015.
