New England Patriots vs. San Francisco 49ers
February 3, 2021
This was sure to be a good game, but it ended up being just a blowout. One notable player is RB Jeff Wilson Jr. He was one of the backups for an injured Raheem Mostert and he put on a show. The game started pretty evenly, with the 49ers scoring on the first drive. That was one of Jeff Wilson Jr’s three touchdowns. Later, in the second quarter, the Patriots got a 40 yard field goal to make it seven-three, but the 49ers responded with a field goal and a touchdown by RB Kyle Juszczyk. This touchdown came from QB Cam Newton throwing an interception. After the touchdown, the Patriots punted and the 49ers drove down the field and finished with Wilson running in a 16 yard touchdown. On the second play of the next New England drive, Cam Newton throws his second pick. The 49ers can’t capitalize and QB Jimmy Garoppollo throws an interception, but by that time, it was halftime. The Patriots get the ball to start the second half and they make the score 23-6 with another field goal, but the 49ers got down the field and Wilson gets his third TD of the game, but he gets injured on the play. He did not return in this game. The next drive resulted in Cam Newton’s third interception, and then he was benched. He finished the game going 9-15 with 98 yards and three INT’s. There wasn’t anymore scoring in the rest of the game, so at the end, the score was 33-6. This would make the 49ers 4-3 and make the NFC West a division with teams with all winning records. New England lose for the third time in a row and the second time at home.
