SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Deebo Samuel was impressive enough as one of the NFL's most productive receivers in the first half of the season.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Aiyuk needed a restart to his disappointing second season in the NFL when the San Francisco 49ers headed into their bye week.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers quieted all the talk about struggling offense and quarterback changes for at least another week.
Now the question going forward is was that an aberration or what the Niners can count on the rest of the season.

Now the question is where do the San Francisco 49ers head from here following a fourth straight loss?
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Colts coach Frank Reich wasn't about to make the same mistake twice.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Fresh off a trip to the Super Bowl in the 2019 season, the San Francisco 49ers had a difficult decision to make.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Injuries to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo helped derail two of the past three seasons for the San Francisco 49ers.
