Off the field, out of that No. 10 uniform that Antworten

SANTA CLARA Elgton Jenkins Jersey , Calif. (AP)all the rage around here, Jimmy Garoppolo hardly stands out as the star of the San Francisco 49ers. Understated in an open denim button down with the sleeves rolled up over a white T-shirt, he made his way through the tunnels of Levi’s Stadium to loud chants of ”Jimmy!” and ”Yay, Jim!” It very well could have been his teammates and coaches doing the cheering – that’s how happy they are to have Garoppolo on board. The Niners needed three tries this season and they’ve finally found their quarterback of the future – and the now. They’ve won three straight in comeback fashion, with Garoppolo under center. He threw for a career-high 381 yards and a touchdown, Robbie Gould kicked a game-winning field goal from 45 yards as time expired, and San Francisco topped the contending Tennessee Titans 25-23 on Sunday, giving the 49ers (4-10) their first three-game winning streak since 2014. ”It’s good to be in these close games,” Garoppolo said. ”There’s different ways to win in this league. It’s not always going to be pretty.” He even outdueled Marcus Mariota down the stretch as the teams traded field goals. Mariota threw for 241 yards with two touchdowns while completing 23 of 33 passes, but Tennessee (8-6) lost its second straight out West. ”We left Nashville in first place in our division and now we’ve lost two in a row,” Mariota said. ”We have to take what we learned and bounce back.” First-year 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan has studied all the tape on Garoppolo , back to the quarterback’s college days at Eastern Illinois. He knew full well about his tutelage under Tom Brady in New England’s successful system. Now, Shanahan is seeing it with his own eyes. ”He’s always looked good on tape,” Shanahan said. ”… You hope to see that each week but you never know `til you start to play. He’s been just as good as advertised if not better.” Garoppolo completed 31 of 43 passes to go over 300 yards passing for the second straight game after last week’s win at Houston. He became the first 49ers quarterback since the merger in 1970 to win each of his first three starts and just the second QB to do so in franchise history. Y.A. Tittle did so spanning the 1951-52 seasons. Garoppolo threw a 5-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter to tight end Garrett Celek – whose great play in recent weeks has earned him the nickname of ”Celek Time.” Celek later had a 41-yard catch. ”It is very fun. Football at the end of the day is a little kids’ game that grown men get to play,” Garoppolo said. ”I’m just privileged to get to do that every day.” Here are some things to take from Sunday’s game: TITANS STUMBLE Tennessee stayed in Arizona to practice after last week’s road loss to the Cardinals before playing the 49ers. Two disappointing defeats to the NFC West could wind up costing coach Mike Mularkey’s team a playoff berth, though the Titans now go home for their final two games: against the Rams and Jaguars. ”We have a chance to still get in the playoffs. We have to win at home with two games that we have,” Mularkey said. ”… Exactly how you would feel if you lost in the last play of the game is how they feel right now. They’ll get over it, which they have in the past.” RELIABLE GOULD Gould is treating every field-goal try like his own playoff chase, just as the 49ers committed to do over the final weeks as they try to impact the positioning of their opponents. Gould sure did his part with that big kicking foot. He made six more field goals Sunday, three in the final nine minutes that included the game-winner from 45 yards as time expired. He has converted 20 straight attempts and is 36 of 38. ”We talked about beating a playoff team,” he said. ”That team is in the playoff hunt.” GOODWIN’S GREAT HANDS Marquise Goodwin already played a game last month after losing his premature son. Then last week, he dealt with the death of his father. Goodwin took the field Sunday and made 10 catches for 114 yards in another spectacular performance. Playing with Garoppolo doesn’t hurt. ”He’s just very in tune with everybody. It’s crazy,” Goodwin said. ”I don’t think I’ve ever played with anybody like him. If you look Dexter Williams Jersey , my route, it may have been a good route and it may have not, but I don’t have to run a perfect route.” — NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan remembers only too well how the Titans always seemed to find a way to lose through his first two seasons in the NFL. Now they’re finding ways to win, and that’s all that matters. The Titans gave up the first 10 points, then allowed only a field goal in the second half before LeShaun Sims intercepted a pass in the end zone to end Houston’s final drive in a 24-13 win over the Texans on Sunday . Derrick Henry made the final margin look a little better with a career-long 75-yard touchdown run. ”A win or loss, there is no asterisk by it,” Lewan said. Titans running back DeMarco Murray agrees. ”It doesn’t matter how it happens,” Murray said. ”You get another check in the win column. We will take that any day.” The Titans (8-4) now have won six of their last seven, and they remain ahead of Jacksonville atop the AFC South. They also improved to 4-1 inside a division they haven’t won since 2008. Beating AFC South opponents has been the first goal for Tennessee since finishing 9-7 and missing a playoff berth yet again. ”It cost us a chance to go to the tournament,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. For Houston (4-8), the injuries and losses just keep piling up. Five Texans Nick Bosa Jersey , including four on offense, left the game with injuries. They also lost their second straight and for the fifth time in six games. ”I’ve never been in this situation, so I’m learning on the job, too,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. Here are some things to know about the Titans and Texans: RUNNING TITANS Marcus Mariota ran for a TD , his fifth this season. He teamed with DeMarco Murray and Henry to pile up a season-high 198 yards rushing against a Houston defense that came in ranked seventh in the NFL, allowing only 96.3 yards per game. Murray said the offensive line deserved a game ball for blocking so well. ”We controlled the line of scrimmage from start to finish,” Murray said. TARGET HOPKINS Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is the focus on offense anytime, and that became even more crucial with receiver Will Fuller out again. Then receiver Bruce Ellington hurt a hamstring, followed by tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz and receiver Braxton Miller with concussions. Running back Alfred Blue also suffered a concussion. So Savage threw officially to Hopkins 14 times, and the receiver made eight catches for 80 yards . It’s the eighth time this season he’s caught at least seven passes in a game, and he topped 70 yards receiving for the ninth time. Both lead the NFL. TENNESSEE DEFENSE The Titans added four sacks Sunday L.J. Collier Jersey , and now they have 12 combined over the past two games. That matches the best two-game total since this franchise moved to Tennessee and the sixth time the Titans have piled up that many sacks. They last totaled 12 sacks in October 2016. Yes, Savage threw for a career-high 365 yards . But the Titans held Houston to 53 yards rushing, the eighth straight game they’ve limited an opponent to 100 yards or fewer. MIX AND MATCH The Texans’ injuries have gotten so bad that running back Andre Ellington, claimed off waivers in October, played his first game for Houston. And he wound up at slot receiver after the other injuries during the game, and he finished with five catches for 56 yards. MUSIC CITY ADVANTAGE The Titans now have won nine of their last 10 games at home dating back to last season. But the best example of their reclaimed home-field advantage came inside the final two minutes with Houston facing fourth-and-4. Texans lineman Jeff Allen, at left tackle rather than his right guard spot that he started at most of this season, false started. Not once or twice, but three straight times. ”In all of my years, I haven’t heard the crowd get that loud and wild,” Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey said. — AP freelance writers Brian Hinchman and Terry McCormick contributed to this report. —
