Offensive spotlight: Jimmy Garoppolo’s return to QB1 will be a permanent one, as Trey Lance suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the first quarter. Garoppolo’s passing grade wasn't the greatest in his first game action of the season (62.9), and he made just one big-time throw to accompany his one turnover-worthy play. He did, however, have a promising 9.6-yard average depth of target.

Defensive spotlight: Seven total pressures — four hurries, two sacks and a quarterback hit — highlighted the dominance of edge-rushing phenom Nick Bosa. The former Buckeye finished with a season-high 90.0 pass-rushing grade on 25 snaps.

Rookie spotlight: It was another rough day at the office for fifth-round rookie Tariq Woolen. For a second consecutive week, Woolen earned a sub-50 coverage grade (42.8), pending review, and allowed three catches for two first downs on four targets. 

Offensive line spotlight: The Niners' offensive line allowed just nine total pressures on 36 pass-blocking snaps and didn't give up a single sack to the Seahawks. The unit finished with a 78.8 pass-blocking grade.
