New and Notable
49ers Overcome Short Week and Travel to Dominate Jaguars
On a cross country trip on a short week and an early kickoff, the San Francisco 49ers took care of business on the road in a commanding 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 49ers led wire-to-wire, and by as many as 27 points, prior to a garbage time touchdown by Jaguars running back James Robinson. The victory evens out San Francisco's record to .500 now 11 weeks into the season.
"I think we've been good on the road. I think we've been good going to the East Coast," Kyle Shanahan said postgame. "We knew how much our backs were against the wall before that Rams game. And we also knew that meant nothing if we couldn't win today. I get how it looks, but I don't think it was very hard to get the guys attention and get ready to play. We knew how that felt when we were losing games and how much better it felt against the Rams and we didn't want that to end today."
Jimmy Garoppolo Reaches 10,000-Career Passing Yards
Entering Sunday's game needing just 22 passing yards, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo surpassed 10,000-career passing yards on the Week 11 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Garoppolo finished his outing against the Jaguars completing 16-of-22 passes for 176 yards and two touchdowns for a season-high 126.3 quarterback rating. While taking a sizable lead in Sunday's contest, the 49ers were able to relieve Garoppolo of his duties and lean on their run game in the 30-10 rout over the Jaguars.

Entering into Sunday's game, Bosa amassed 31 tackles, two forced fumbles and a pass defensed in addition to his eight sacks that were the eighth-most in the NFL and third-most in the NFC.
