The San Francisco 49ers will not end the season winless as they notched their first victory Week 10 against the New York Giants.
The Niners finally won a game! They did it at the expense of the equally bad Giants. Rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard led the charge for San Francisco in route to a 31-21 Week 10 victory.
Beathard threw for 288 yards and two touchdowns to go along with one interception.
After the game, 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan said,
“You lose 9 in a row, you learn to savor the moment and enjoy these.”
And savor this game they must because next week they play a division opponent and ex-rival in the Seattle Seahawks.
San Francisco can bask in the fact that they won’t be the last team in the NFL to get its first win; that title is once again reserved for the Cleveland Browns.
The Niners are still one of the worst teams in the league and will end up with a top-two draft pick next year, but for now they’re winners–even if it’s to be short-lived.
