Scores:

  • New York Giants 12 – San Francisco 49ers 30

Highlights:  Even when he’s not at his best, Brock Purdy still manages to get the job done. With New York Giants defensive coordinator Wink Martindale bringing the figurative kitchen sink at Purdy, San Francisco‘s passing game was certainly slowed down in the early stages of the game. But Purdy didn’t crumble under the constant pressure. He hung in the pocket long enough to make a few big plays, while also not turning the ball over in his team’s 30-12 victory over the Giants at Levi’s Stadium in a nationally televised Thursday night contest. The Giants sent five or more rushers on 33 of Purdy’s 39 dropbacks (84.6 percent), the highest blitz rate in the Next Gen Stats era. Purdy finished 20-of-31 for 247 yards and two scores when New York sent pressure. Purdy also averaged the fastest time to throw of his career (2.34 seconds).
