The touchdown was James' first catch of the season and just his second receiving TD with the 49ers. For Garoppolo, it had to feel good to get back in the end zone.
Garoppolo threw a pick-six in the second quarter Sunday, putting the 49ers in an early hole. The touchdown was Jimmy G's first since Sept. 23, 2018.
