Jimmy G's resurgence fueling 49ers' late playoff push


After a rough start had many fans clamoring for Trey Lance, Jimmy Garoppolo has flipped the script on his 2021 NFL season over the past few weeks.

Since the 49ers' trip to Garoppolo's hometown and win over the Chicago Bears, Garoppolo's numbers have improved dramatically.

The Pro Football Focus data certainly backs up the improvement from Garoppolo.

After a 2-4 start, the 49ers have gone 3-1 since that Week 8 trip to the Windy City.

Mistake-free football also has turned the tide for the 49ers, as the offense has not turned the ball over in each of the last two games. The 49ers' defense, which had just one takeaway through the first four weeks, has forced two turnovers in each of the last two games.

If Garoppolo can keep this up, the 49ers' playoff push should continue in a pivotal matchup with the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.
