It's official the San Francisco 49ers are for real as they flat out embarrassed the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football winning the game 31-3. It all started and ended with a Matt Breida 83 yard touchdown run on the 49ers first play from scrimmage.
The 49ers offensive line paved the way for 276 rushing yards as the team ended up producing a total of 446 yards in the blowout. Jimmy Garoppolo had 2 touchdowns, zero picks and threw for 181 yards and seemed to be in complete control of the Browns defense. But, it wasn't just the offense as the defense played a clear and concise role in the mass destruction of the Cleveland Browns. San Francisco accumulated four turnovers and sacked Baker Mayfield 4 times. The 49ers rookie defensive end, Nick Bosa taunted Baker Mayfield all-night with a Baker chant and sacked him twice in the game. Bosa, who through the first quarter of the 2019 NFL season is the clear-cut choice for defensive rookie of the year has lived up and maybe even exceeded his #2 overall draft pick status. The Bad:
All of those Baker Mayfield commercials on my TV during the first 5 games of the 2019 NFL Season. In Monday Nights game Baker went 8-22 for 100 yards and threw two picks and lost one fumble against the vastly improving 49ers defense. In the first 5 games of the 2019 season, Mayfield has 4 TDs, 6 picks and is near the bottom of active QBs with a horrific 77.2 quarterback rating, which is why I'm wondering why are there all those damn Baker Mayfield commercials on TV?
