Measly Crowd Greets 49ers As They Face Jets At Home Field

April AlvarezDec 14, 2016

But the day ended with something else all together: a rare reason for hope.

Bilal Powell scored on a 19-yard run after NY stopped Carlos Hyde on fourth-and-short to open overtime and the Jets dealt the 49ers perhaps their most disheartening loss of a lost season with a 23-17 victory on Sunday.

On Jan. 1, the San Francisco 49ers fired then-head coach Jim Tomsula after one season and a 5-11 record. Three plays later, the Jets won the game, 23-17, on Bilal Powell's 19-yard touchdown run.

But that understates the big role he played in a wild ride of a performance that covered all that is wrong with young quarterbacks in general and Petty in particular, as well as everything that is right about his game - from his major-league arm to his "feistiness", a word coach Todd Bowles and several players used to describe him.

"Obviously we want to win for ourselves because it's been way too long but when something like that happens, you know what it would mean to him and his family", receiver Torrey Smith said.

President Fils-Aime helped the television host walked through the game as they played it on the latter's iPhone. If you simply can not get enough of Nintendo , however, Super Mario Run is set to come out on December 15th.

If he didn't think that way Petty never would have delivered the play of the game - a 26-yard pass to Robby Anderson in overtime with 49ers' defensive lineman DeForest Buckner having chased him from the pocket and close enough to breathe on his neck. But at the very least, the second-year pro, in only his second start, showed the traits that suggest a long National Football League career ahead of him - namely impressive arm strength, pinpoint accuracy on some tough throws and the ability to make plays with his feet (and 235-pound frame) when needed. In his second career start, Petty shook off some early struggles and led a comeback win.

As for that one unsafe throw, Bowles said, "That play can go either way, but Robby made a great play and made it look good. But he made a play".

"Shoot, I think you just play QB and you go off your instincts", Petty said after the game. "I had to bring in that big-time catch". The Jets had a hard time stopping the run with Carlos Hyde all day, but especially in the first half.

Like the 49ers, the Jets have endured a litany of problems at quarterback. They were trailing 17-6 and had yet to score a touchdown.

The Jets pulled to within a field goal on Powell's 5-yard touchdown run.

He's ready to go", Jordan Spieth said. "Even with Tiger, every time we set expectations, he exceeds them". Tiger Woods finished his fourth round at the Hero World Challenge with a 76.

The conversion came on a play on which Petty faked a handoff and twisted his way into the end zone after the 49ers' Ahmad Brooks grabbed hold of his jersey from behind. It's not going to help us change the course that we're on. For the entire first half he looked overwhelmed and unready. With Christian Hackenberg starting under center for the Jets, the 49ers will be facing an inexperienced and inconsistent quarterback who might be the face of the New York Jets someday? There was undoubtedly room for improvement. NY was thoroughly embarrassed on the national stage Monday night in a 41-10 loss to Indianapolis that left coach Todd Bowles repeatedly saying "they kicked our asses".

"I knew he was going to put it up to me", said Anderson, who had six catches for 99 yards.

The severity of his injury is not yet known and we will update you on this as soon as we get more information.

"I thought with a yard, we had a shot the way Carlos was running".

Petty, who was named the starter over the demoted Ryan Fitzpatrick last week, admitted he was more nervous than in last month's loss to Los Angeles, when he started in place of the injured Fitzpatrick. "The first half was probably about as ugly as I could play", he said. He'll certainly welcome the sight of the 3-9 Jets this Sunday. And that's encouraging, no matter the opponent. "We just kept fighting, kept fighting and plugging away". "The end result was a win, and that's all we care about".
