Adding to an already trying year, #49ers WR Marquise Goodwin said after today's game that his biological father died earlier this week. That, on top of losing his baby to pregnancy complications earlier this year. Still had another big game today with 10 catches for 114 yards. “I've been dealing with a lot," Goodwin said. "I'm blessed. I'm thankful for the opportunity. God has shown me so much in this season...It's just been a lot, but I really didn't let the outside negative energy affect how I play, how I approach this game or how I come to work each day. I just kind of stayed positive and kept my mind fresh, and I relied on God to bring me through all of the situations that I've been through.”

Titans S Kevin Byard had high praise for 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo as well: “He is one hell of a player," Byard said. "I think the 49ers got themselves a quarterback."

Since Jimmy Garoppolo took over as 49ers' starting QB three weeks ago, these are WR Marquise Goodwin's averages: 8 receptions, 106.3 yards, catching 73 percent of passes thrown his way. Pre-Garoppolo: 2.5 receptions, 52.5 yards, 44 percent of targets.

49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk on QB Jimmy Garoppolo: "We have got all the confidence in the world in Jimmy. He continues to just make plays, extend plays and he's just taken this offense by the reins and he's steering this thing. We're all supporting him and happy we have him." Would imagine that's a feeling shared by many of the 49ers faithful these days.

Jimmy Garoppolo mania in the Bay Area is reaching a fever pitch after he led the 49ers to a game-winning field goal Sunday against the Titans. Facing his toughest test yet, Garoppolo threw for a career-high 381 yards and calmly led San Francisco to the winning points with only about a minute to play and one timeout in his pocket. The Niners have won three in a row for the first time since 2014 and Garoppolo is the first quarterback to win his first five starts since 2004.

49ers K Robbie Gould continues his outstanding season, making his fifth field goal of the day, this time from 48 yards. Gives 49ers a 22-20 lead with 3:08 to play. Niners continue to struggle finishing drives. Gould continues to bail them out.

The 49ers' 13-point lead has begun to evaporate but they did well to hold the Titans to a field goal to open the second half and still cling to a 3-point lead. They'll need QB Jimmy Garoppolo and the offense to get something going here as the Titans have much more at stake in this one than the Niners.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

Suffice to say, the 49ers and their fans have to be pleased with how QB Jimmy Garoppolo's first start has gone so far. Through the first half, Garoppolo is 18-of-26 for 189 yards with a touchdown for a passer rating of 102.9. However, the Niners gave up a late drive for a touchdown and failed to finish drives with touchdowns and hold only a 16-10 lead at the half. Several missed opportunities to put this game away early.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers still settling for too many field goals and do again as they come up short in the red zone. They lead 16-3 with 1:37 left in first half but have to feel like this game should be further in hand than it is. One top priority for offseason: finding a big, physical red zone target for QB Jimmy Garoppolo.

Third time is a charm for the 49ers offense as it finally cashes in for a touchdown. QB Jimmy Garoppolo escaped pressure and hit TE Garrett Celek for a 5-yard score to give the Niners a 13-3 lead. The Niners converted four downs (including one by way of penalty) on that drive. Garoppolo is 16-of-21 for 158 yards with a touchdown for a passer rating of 112.8.

49ers LB Reuben Foster made a big run stuff on second down in San Francisco territory. But he also left the game after the play with an apparent injury. He's being evaluated in the blue tent right now.

49ers WR Aldrick Robinson has a head and wrist injury. His return is questionable.
