A new quarterback led to better results for Marquise Goodwin and the 49ers offense. Adrian Phillips had a game-clinching interception for the Chargers and Justin Tucker was as good as he always is in the kicking game.
Let’s take a look at how all the former ‘Horns did this past week:
Colt McCoy (QB-WAS): Trailing 38-14 late in the fourth quarter, the Redskins let Colt McCoy get some action. This his first time playing in a NFL game since 2015. Unfortunately, he didn’t get the chance to throw the ball.
Jamaal Charles (RB-DEN): With the Broncos getting beat handily, Charles received slightly more touches than usual this week. He totaled five receptions for 39 yards and three carries for 12 yards.
Fozzy Whittaker (RB-CAR): Whittaker returned to action this Sunday from his ankle injury. He averaged a total of 21.0 yard on two kick returns in the Panthers loss.
Marquise Goodwin (WR-SF): With Jimmy Garoppolo making his first career start for the 49ers, Goodwin had a field day. He topped his season-high in catches with eight of them. He finished with eight catches for 99 yards as the 49ers won their second game of the season. Expect Goodwin to receive a good amount of targets every week with Garoppolo at quarterback.
49ers players were so impressed with Jimmy Garoppolo yesterday after their 15-14 win at Chicago that wide receiver Marquise Goodwin - with other players cheering - offered to get up and give Garoppolo his first-row seat on the team bus when Garoppolo boarded it. #49ers— Jim Trotter (@JimTrotter_NFL) December 4, 2017
Brian Orakpo (DE-TEN): Orapko did his job as a defensive end and got to the opposing quarterback for a his 5th sack of the season on Sunday. He also recorded three solo tackles and had two quarterback hurries in their 24-13 win.
Brian Robison (DT-MIN): The veteran defensive lineman cracked the stat sheet with one solo tackle in a 14-9 victory.
Derrick Johnson (ILB-KC): Johnson was all over the field on Sunday as he was tied for second on the team for tackles in their tough seven-point loss. He had nine total tackles (0.5 TFL) which now puts him at 60 total tackles on the year.
Quandre Diggs (Nickel CB-DET): Diggs was tied for second on the team in tackles on Sunday. He had five solo tackles.
Adrian Colbert (CB-SF): Colbert had another solid performance at safety and continued to lay the wood on the field. He recorded three solo tackles in a 15-14 win.
Adrian Phillips (SS-LAC): With the Browns driving and trying to make it a one possession game late in the fourth quarter, Phillips sealed it and secured a huge win for the Chargers with an interception. This was his 2nd interception of the season. He had two tackles and a pass deflection to go along with his interception. Phillips and the rest of the Chargers secondary remained solid and notched their 6th victory of the year.
Kenny Vaccaro (SS-NO): The hard-hitting safety recorded his first full sack of the season, three total tackles and a pass deflection in their 31-21 win.
Earl Thomas (FS-SEA): Thomas had five total tackles (four solo) in a win on Sunday night.
Phil Dawson (K-ARI): After recently hitting a career long field goal, Dawson hit a 54-yard field goal on Sunday. He went 1-for-2 on field goals and extra points in the Cardinals loss.
Nick Rose (K-WAS): Rose made both of his extra point attempts in a 38-14 loss.
Justin Tucker (K-BAL): Tucker had a perfect performance in the Ravens 44-20 win. He connected on all three of his field goal attempts (38, 46, 51 yarders) and all five of his extra point attempts.
