Dante Pettis didn't have the best game on Sunday against the Steelers, but he made up for it in a big way.
With just over a minute remaining in the Week 3 contest and the game on the line, Pettis caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Jimmy Garoppolo to give the 49ers a 24-20 lead over Pittsburgh.

The 49ers' defense would preserve the win by stopping the Steelers on their final possession of the game.
"It feels good," Pettis said on the field at Levi's Stadium minutes later on 49ers Postgame Live. "It's been a rough start for me personally. Just gotta keep battling through things and the team's playing good, so that's all that matters."
Pettis finished the game with four catches on five targets for 20 yards and the one touchdown.
