Purdy was able to lead the 49ers to a blowout win over the Seattle Seahawks, keeping San Francisco’s Super Bowl hopes alive.
The youngster completed 18 of his 30 passes for 332 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions.
On the ground, he added 16 rushing yards and another touchdown.
It was a fantastic performance for him in his postseason debut, and it’ll be fascinating to see how far he can get the 49ers in these playoffs.
Rising To The Occasion
The rookie stepped up and was fantastic in the regular season, leading the 49ers to a 5-0 record in his starts.
In those five starts, he completed 68.6 percent of his passes for 1,098 yards, 11 touchdowns, and two interceptions.
Now, his success appears to be carrying over into the playoffs.
San Francisco is three wins away from claiming its first Super Bowl title since the 1994 season.
If Purdy helps the team reach the promised land, he’ll be regarded as a 49ers legend for years to come.
The team will be back in action next weekend in hopes of keeping that dream alive.
