49ers ' two 90-plus yard TD drives first for team since '92

49ers

The 49ers had two touchdown drives in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles, both of which started inside their own 10-yard line. It was the first time the 49ers have done that in a single game since 1992, when they faced the then-San Diego Chargers.

Late in the second quarter, the 49ers took over at their own three-yard line, after the Eagles botched a trick play on fourth down and goal.

The 49ers' offense marched down the field and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo eventually found Jauan Jennings for an 11-yard touchdown with 12 seconds remaining in the first half, giving San Francisco a 7-3 lead.

Late in the third quarter, the 49ers again took over deep in their own territory, taking over from the eight-yard line after a punt.

A 16-play drive ensued for the 49ers, one that included a clutch first catch of the season for 2020 first-round draft pick Brandon Aiyuk.

After a replay review wiped out an Elijah Mitchell touchdown run, Jimmy Garoppolo snuck in for a one-yard score to push the 49ers' lead to 14-3 with 10:52 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Even with compromised field position, the 49ers were able to put together extended touchdown drives behind Garoppolo and timely plays from skill players.

The 49ers will need to keep that ability to extend drives strong as they return home to host the Green Bay Packers in Week 3 at Levi's Stadium.
