The San Francisco 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo have just given their supporters another reason to be optimistic about the remainder of the 2022 season.
Garoppolo and company accomplished a feat that 49ers supporters hadn’t seen in 22 years, since the days of Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens, on Monday Night Football against the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico.
In the 38-10 victory, Garoppolo threw four touchdown passes, with George Kittle and Brandon Aiyuk each collecting two. In fact, it is the first occasion since Week 4 of 2000 (when multiple 49ers players caught two or more touchdowns) that this has happened. As previously said, Rice and Owens were the ones to pull it off against the Dallas Cowboys at the time.
The fact that Jimmy Garoppolo became just the second player since Fran Tarkenton to throw four or more touchdown passes three times against the Cardinals made things even better.

The 49ers gave an unquestionably outstanding effort, which should increase their confidence as they attempt to qualify for the playoffs. You know you’re doing something great when your name appears on a record among athletes like Terrell Owens and Jerry Rice.
San Francisco has now won three straight contests, raising their season record to 6-4. Despite having an identical 6-4 record versus the Seattle Seahawks, they continue to lead the NFC West.
Week 12’s matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the 49ers will be their next opportunity to extend their winning streak.
