An analysis of 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy’s poor performance in their NFL Week 6 defeat to the Browns


The San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Brock Purdy blew out his unpopular title “Mr. Irrelevant” in his debut season with his extraordinary playmaking abilities. The perfect 10-0 start by the quarterback left the 49ers fully relaxed regarding their offensive lineup.

However, NFL Week 6 offered the star quarterback and his team a good hit to be remembered for the whole season, and, if you’re one of those NFL fans who’s looking to place a wager on your favorite player or team, of USA sportsbooks with no deposit bonuses and free bets. With his team’s massive loss, Purdy himself experienced the worst performance of his career almost the whole night since he started for the 49ers.

49ers QB Brock Purdy struggles in Week 6 loss to Browns

The 49ers were on cloud nine when they entered the Cleveland Browns Stadium with their “Undefeated” title, yet the pride dashed soon after the Browns pulled off an upset 19-17 victory over them.

As of the first quarter, the Niners offense is credited with being primarily responsible for the disheartening defeat. They had a 7–0 lead going into the final quarter, but they lost momentum and were unable to produce a strong finish. The team’s offensive star, Brock Purdy, too fell short of the supporters’ expectations, finishing with a career-low 44.4 percent of his passes attempted, per SB Nation.

Almost the whole night, the Browns defensive linemen succeeded in keeping the second-year quarterback under pressure and forcing him to miss his receiver at a high rate. In a post-game interview, the 49ers quarterback himself admitted his missed opportunities.

“It’s the NFL, you get opportunities, you gotta take advantage of them. So, there’s definitely some throws and opportunities I feel like that were there for me, and I missed them.”

The dual-threat quarterback closed the night with only 125 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. 

Can Brock Purdy and the 49ers redeem themselves in NFL Week 7 vs Vikings

In addition to Brock Purdy’s struggles, Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, and Trent Williams’ injuries were major factors in the 49ers’ first defeat in Cleveland this past Sunday.

Concern over these players’ availability for Monday night football against the 2-4 Minnesota Vikings in Week 7 has increased as the 49ers prepare for the game. Fortunately for the 49ers, NFL Media reports that all three of those players could be available for Monday night’s game against the Vikings.

But aside from their Week 6 setback, the 49ers have been the team that has consistently provided its players with entertainment throughout the season. The squad received good news about McCaffrey, Samuel, and Trent Williams, and Purdy had previously said that they were going to examine themselves in the mirror to identify their shortcomings and address them.

While it is impossible to predict anything until the final siren of the game, the team’s quarterbacks’ resolve and the status of their players suggest that they will mount a strong comeback against the Vikings, led by Kirk Cousin.
