Quick analysis of the 49ers’ 30-10 win over the Jaguars

It’s all-round excellence that could redouble the playoff legitimacy of the 49ers.

What worked in Sunday’s 30-10 win against the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars – and what worked in a 31-10 upset to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night – the 49ers must continue to repeat.

The NFC is still wide open, or so it is looking for a 49ers team that has pushed its record to 5-5 after last month’s four-game losing streak.

Next Sunday, the 49ers could win three straight regular-season games for the first time since October 2019.

Coming to Levi’s Stadium will be the Minnesota Vikings, a fellow NFC challenger at 5-5. After a 34-31 win over the Green Bay Packers (8-3), the Vikings will make their first trip to Santa Clara since losing 27-10 in the 2019 season’s divisional playoffs.

The 49ers have won three of their last four, and, contrary to franchise bylaws, this renaissance isn’t about a red-hot quarterback, with Jimmy Garoppolo posting a passer rating for 100 yards for the fourth straight game. All respect for

Nor was Sunday’s passage about the still dilapidated state of the Jaguar (2-8).

The 49ers’ running game is being kept busy, a second straight game to the tune of 40-plus, and this time, Deebow Samuel runs for a team-high 79 yards, rather than entirely at Jeff Wilson Jr.’s feet. to trust. (50 yards), Trey Preach (32 yards) or even rookie Trey Lance (7-yard run before taking two knees on a five-snap cameo to end the game).

The passing game is watching its stars play like stars, as Brandon Ayuk and George Kittel catching touchdown passes — and catching all 11 passes that came their way. Ayuk had seven catches for 85 yards, Kittel had four for 34. Samuel had just a 15-yard catch, so he remains 6 yards shy of the first 1,000-yard season of a 49-yard catch by a receiver since 2014.

Things were swell so aggressively that the 49ers could afford a third and goal imperfection toward offensive tackle Trent Williams, then kittel a fourth-down touchdown pass for a 24-point lead midway through the third quarter. could convert. A distant thought at the time was that Garoppolo was missing a wide open Jeff Wilson Jr. in the end zone on Sunday’s 20-play opening drive, which ended with an awkward field goal.

Defensively, the 49ers started with a three-and-out, then saw the Jaguars’ next series quickly end with Josh Norman making a fumble by Fred Warner. A tone-setting takeaway? Yes, just like Jimmy Ward barred two Rams properties from opening on Monday night.

Nick Bosa also drew a couple holding penalties on weak offensive tackles, and his two sacks gave him a career-high 10 this season. Bossa consistently upset the Jaguars’ top draft pick Trevor Lawrence (25 for 16, 158 yards).

special team? Yes, the 49ers did damage to the Jaguars there, Trent Sherfield fixing a muff punt in the fourth quarter to set up Robbie Gould’s second field goal of the day.

Garopolo. Samuel. Kittle. Ayuk. Bossa. Warner. They were the headliners of the game, as the 49ers need them, weeks in and now seven weeks out of the playoffs.

With three minutes to go, Garoppolo leaned in front of the Lance, leading the 49ers safely by 20 points. Garoppolo finished 16-in-22 with 176 yards, two touchdowns, a 126.3 rating and no turnover for the third time in four games.

This is not a flawless team by any means.

Safety Jacquiski Tart’s return to the lineup came with a familiar problem in the secondary: a near-interference penalty, which the Jaguars ran into James Robinson’s 1-yard touchdown with 3:04 on the next snap.

The 49ers would have preferred to produce more than 50 rushing yards (19 carriages) on Jeff Wilson Jr.’s first start of the season.

But the 49ers toured the entire country in a short week and didn’t take a lousy opponent lightly.
