49ers report card: Clutch moments in Washington deliver win, No. 1 seed LANDOVER, Md. – Here is how the 49ers (12-4) graded in Sunday’s 27-10 win over the host Washington Commanders to help secure the No. 1 seed for the upcoming NFC playoffs:PASS OFFENSE: ABrock Purdy rebounded from his career-worst outing on Christmas (four interceptions) and delivered a turnover-free outing that finished strong. He was 22-of-28 for 230 yards with touchdown passes to Deebo Samuel (2 yards; first-quarter shovel pass) and Brandon Aiyuk (17 yards; fourth-quarter improv theater). Purdy’s 4,280 yards this season thus catapulted him past Steve Young (4,170) and Jeff Garcia (4,278) for the most in a 49ers season. Purdy’s 31 touchdown passes are tied for fourth-most, behind Steve Young (36, 1998; 35, 1994) and Jeff Garcia (32, 2001). One more: Purdy’s 124.7 passer rating marked his eighth over 120 this season, which trails only Aaron Rodgers (10, 2020) in NFL history. That is where Purdy’s numbers likely will finish if the 49ers wisely rest him in a Week 18 finale with the Ram...

Happy New Year!

Published Wed, 21 Feb 2024 14:37:04 GMT

Happy New Year! Starting off with patchy areas of fog and smoke infused from the fireworks shows last night. Visibility has been poor especially around inland locations.A chilly high pressure area remains in charge providing clear skies, light winds and helping temperatures go down into the 40’s and 50’s.Today will feature bright sunshine like Sunday. However, mid to high level clouds are set to increase on Tuesday and Wednesday due to nearby fronts. They will be limited with moisture, so only an isolated shower possible with the second front on Thursday. Another one crosses through Sunday (maybe wetter?).As far as temperatures are concerned, there will be some ups and downs, but not as significant as the cold air we are currently experiencing.Have a wonderful New Year South Florida!
