  • On Sunday, Thomas’s run-stop percentage (total number of run stops — runs that constitute a loss for the offense — divided by the number of run snaps played) of 13.8 percent ranked seventh in the league among 28 qualifying 4-3 defensive ends.
  • Thomas recorded an overall grade of 86.6, comfortably the highest of his rookie season so far, and he was also the highest-graded 49er in Week 6.
