Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 200 yards -- 134 went to Kittle. Garoppolo completed 22 passes, and 13 of those landed in the star tight end's hands. For yet another impressive showing, Kittle landed on Pro Football Focus' Team of the Week.
Kittle earned a 91.6 grade for the game, and now has a 94.6 overall grade for the season. Through Week 15, Kittle has the highest PFF grade ever for a tight end, eclipsing Rob Gronkowski's 92.0 grade in 2011.
Kittle now has 73 receptions for 888 yards and four touchdowns, despite missing two games with ankle and knee injuries. On Sunday, he passed Hall of Famer Mike Dikta to have the most receiving yards ever by a tight end through three seasons.
The 26-year-old is up to 2,780 career receiving yards in 45 games, and the 49ers still have two regular-season games remaining this year.
Oh yeah, and he can block.

Though his huge performance wasn't enough against Atlanta, Kittle is putting on a show for the ages this season.
